Default Is it safe to say that Hakeem's Dreamshake, Kareems Skyhook, and MJ's fadeaway were..

The 3 most unstoppable offensive moves ever?

Is there anything that is harder to stop than those three things?

Hakeem's shake just because he was so quick and agile. The man was as quick as a guard yet 7 inches too tall.

Kareem's skyhook simply because his height and length made it impossible to block.

Michael and his fadeaway is self explanatory. With his amazing jumping, it was impossible to contest or stop his fadeaway.

That's simple to stop. Just foul the guy, him making a freethrow is almost as rare as kevin durant turning down a shot he could take.


just joking about the kevin durant comment, i like him alot, and his shot selection really has gotten alot better since coming into the league.

You can credit that to his fat ass.


Seriously though, my favourite move, or should I say set of moves, was Hakeem's dream shake. It didn't matter whether you could stop one or two of his moves because he'd have a ton more up his sleeve that would be bursting to get out.

With Hakeem you never knew what was coming, how many times he was going to fake you or whether he was going to fake with a pass or a shot. It really didn't matter how he done it, because, you pretty much knew that he was going to do it and you couldn't stop it, because you just simple didn't know what he was going to do next.

Rasheed Wallace fade away is also pretty special.

Wade's free throws. Unless of course you hit him in the shoulder. He won't be able to adjust his form from the wheelchair probably.


This is not funny, and I'm disappointed in myself for even saying it.

one thing i loved about dreams moves was that i dont think even he knew what he was gonna do first, he just reacts to whatever the defender gives to him automatically and is usually successful. he had amazing reflexes for a big man.

Yeah, especially jordan's shot and Kareem's skyhook. Both shots are taken from behind the body's center of gravity and out of range of the defender. Furthermore, the angles were so high they eliminated the chance of blocking the shot. Lastly, those guys actually MADE the shots. Practically nobody does skyhooks in today's game... not because they don't want to, but because "nobody" can get it to fall with any success.

Egg Zact Lee.

All respect to shaq, but the back to the basket part of his game is a function of the ways the game was reffed for a decade. Technically his career's worth of bum bums were all fouls.
