To begin with, the boy was raised in a Muslim household, and was educated at Joseph Wheeler High School in which he started playing basketball. Abdur-Rahim was then a member of the basketball team at the University of California, Berkeley, uniquely winning Conference Player of the Year as a freshman, and so PAC-10 Freshman of the Year, after setting records for total points, scoring average, field goals and free throws.
Unsuprisingly perhaps, he dropped out of university to enter the 1996 NFL Draft, in which he was picked 3rd overall in the first round by the Vancouver Grizzlies. In his debut season Shareef played in 80 matches, scoring an average of 18.7 points per game, which resulted in his participation in the Rookie Game, a traditional match of the best novices in the NBA. In his second season, he played 82 games for 22.3 points per game, continuing in the same vein and in 1999 scoring his 5000th point, becoming the second youngest player to reach that total.
Prior to the 2001 – 2002 season he moved to another NBA team the Atlanta Hawks, soon being named the Player of the Week for 19th to 25th November 2001. At the Hawks, he played 77 games with an average of 21.2 points per game, but in the 2002 – 2003 season his point average declined to19.9 points per game, and before the 2003 – 2004 season, he moved to the Portland Trail Blazers. However, he did not get the best of it – in the first 32 games of the season, he scored on average of only 10.0 points per game, bringing a return to Atlanta at the end of the season.
There he managed to rebuild his form, and in another 53 games he managed to score 20.1 points per game. Still, prior to the 2004 – 2005 season he returned to Portland, and in 54 games scored 16.8 points per game, but after the season, Shareef changed the club colours again, this time moving to the Sacramento Kings for the 2005 -2006 season, at the end of which he made his NBA playoff debut, but his team lost in the first round to the San Antonio Spurs.
Overall, Abdur-Rahim was an elegant player. He was capable of fine movements in short spaces and a good shot from the middle. He was also praised for great athleticism. He has a career single game record of 50 points, made on the 23rd November 2001 against the Detroit Pistons. He participated in the Olympics in 2000 winning the gold medal with the team of the US.
Afterwards, Shareef worked as an assistant coach of Sacramento Kings (NBA); in 2010, he served as an assistant general manager. In 2013, he went on working as the general manager of the NBA G League team the Reno Bighorns.
Finally, in the personal life of Abdur-Rahim, he married Delicia Abdur-Rahim in 2000; they have two children, and live in Granite Bay, California. He has his own charity – Future Foundation – providing after school and other support for youths in Atlanta. He and NBA players Gary Payton and Vin Baker appeared in a TV episode of The Jamie Foxx Show. Also, Abdur-Rahim finally graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a degree in sociology in 2012.
