Regardless dominant offensive players and average defenders are more valuable in general than the other way around. For example who would you rather have? A Larry Bird/Magic Johnson or Dikembe Mutombo/Ben Wallace?

That's a bad example.. We're talking about starting fives here.

How is it a bad example? We're talking about individual players in this thread. The thread is about Hakeem Olajuwon being overrated as an individual.

Hakeem is the greatest center ever IMO

Jabbar just played in the league for a long ass period of time. he was ahead of my time but to me he didnt really have that much of a offensive game besides that boring sky hook ****. Hakeem had the sickest post game, he shoots the ball pretty well, amazing defender, ect ect.

Hypothetical 2 on 2 matchups are just dumb. I don't like them.

Hakeem is definitely not overrated - the most skilled offensive center ever IMO. Defensively, he's second to none, hell better than Bill Russel...certainly.

Hakeem is arguably the most complete big man to ever play the game. He's one of the few players who could carry a team on both ends of the floor.

I didn't mean a hypothetical 2 on2 matchup. I meant a Mutombo/Wallace type player who was a domiannt defender/average at best offensive player or a dominant offensive player like Bird or Magic who are domiannt offensive players/average at best defenders.
