Hakeem is probably underrated on ISH. When the question of the GOAT comes up, how many times does his name get mentioned -- unless its a thread specifically focusing on him?

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

This is my list of top 10 center in NBA history:

1. Wilt Chamberlain
2. Kareem Abdur Jabbar
3. Bill Russel
4. Shaquille O'Neal
5. Hakeem Olajuwon
6. George Mikan
7. Bill Walton
8. David Robinson
9. Moses Malone
10. Patrick Ewing

Hakeem is definitely a top 5 center, but nowhere close to GOAT centers like Wilt and Kareem.

I hope it never gets mentioned...then it would be right where it needs to be. He isnt in the GOAT conversation and anyone who says he is engaging in revisionist history

and these are his highlights lol.

These (except form a few plays) are not his "highlights". This is the result of the limited footage that exists for a player like Kareem compared to a player like Hakeem. Kareem has tons of highlights that haven't appeared in any "highlight" clip, because these clips do nothing but recycle plays that they stole from 2-3 documentaries.

And, while we are at it, how the heck is the skyhook "boring"? The only "boring" thing about it is that it's virtually unblockable and it's annoyingly accurate...

Kareem's sky-hook was arguably the most deadly shot in NBA history...but there was ONE player who consistently challenged it. Chamberlain ROUTINELY blocked Kareem's sky-hook, and held him to a 100 pts below his career FG% (in fact, about 120 below in Kareem's prime statistical years (70-71 thru 72-73.) In the 71-72 WCF's, Wilt blocked 15 of them in the series, and 11 of Kareem's shots in the last two games. AND, Wilt was 11 years older, and playing on one surgically repaired knee. One can only wonder what a PRIME Chamberlain would have done to Kareem's offense.

Kareem > Hakeem > Shaq


I don't bother ranking Wilt or Russell because I never saw them play. If someone wants to argue Shaq over Hakeem, I don't mind. I just choose Hakeem because he was a superior defender, and more reliable down the stretch of games.
