Default Re: Hakeem Olajuwon is beginning to become quite overrated here.

Well this is an argument you are going to loose. They spent way more time at airports as there were no chartered flights. They played way more back to backs and sometimes played 5 games straight - and in 4 different cities. They had way crappier beds and no money for massueses. Had bad airconditioning and heating at games. You could piggie back on Wilt's back and karate chop over his hands. Wilt's endurance was off the hook. At 50 years old he ran a 50 mile marathon. He was freakish in that regards. His activity level to me is one of his most amazing thing ever in basketball. Over 160 games he averaged 47.5 points and 25 rebounds and likely 7 blocks and nearly 3 assist a game while barely sitting out and far worse conditions. In games that were much more up and down than now.
