Re: Hakeem Olajuwon is beginning to become quite overrated here.
What impressed me most about Hakeem was his ability to beat opponents with footwork. Something which I feel is greatly lacking in todays centers. He was also undersized at his position considering the amount of true 7ft centers in the league at that time.
For this reason I rate him highly, and the whole overrated/ underrated argument is non stop because people have a much different appreciation of certain players.
