Default Re: Is it safe to say that Hakeem's Dreamshake, Kareems Skyhook, and MJ's fadeaway we

kareem's sky hook was the most unstoppable move ever.

and kevin mchale was no hakeem. mchale was all elbow fakes and he was too mechanical with everything. he took some guys to school with it, but he was no hakeem. hakeem was a lot more fluid and had a huge bag of other tricks in addition to much slicker foot work. hakeem was also a lot quicker than mchale in all aspects. hakeem could spin like a guard too but mchale never had any agility to do that. also, with today's defense, mchale's moves wouldn't really look as solid. his 2-inch vertical hopping self would probably get blocked a bit more often. plus, mchale also had two greats to play along with, which gave him more breathing room to just have to worry about only one defender when he was playing.

lol, calm down buddy, being compared with Hakeem and Jordan's trademark move is no insult. If anything it is a compliment...

Well as far as efficiency goes, Kareem's is far more efficient and it isn't even close. After all, he did shoot 55.9 percent over a 20-year career with it, and didn't shoot <50% until he was 42. No one's ever taken that many shots and been that efficient (of course notwithstanding the fact that no one's ever taken as many shots as Kareem period over the course of a career, but he's in the top ten all-time in career field goal percentage even though he attempted more shots than anyone else on the list).
