Default David Robinson was better than Hakeem Olajuwon

Met head to head 42 times, Robinson held Olajuwon to a measly 44 FG% and won 30 games while being better or comparable at every other stats. Plus, he's a much better Christian.

The only thing you could argue was that Admiral was better during the regular season, and even that is debatable. Once the playoffs arrived, Hakeem stepped up while Admiral took a step backwards.

I wouldn't say Robinson stepped back, more like Ewing where he just didn't have that ability to take it to another level in the clutch.

Olajuwon was the better low post scorer, shot blocker, defender, rebounder and clutch player. Olajuwon was defintley the better player. Robinson wasn't even better than Tim Duncan, much less Olajuwon.

this thread is stupid

David had Tim Duncan in his last 5 years in the league when Hakeem was declining so Robinson winning more is a bit pointless.

Default Re: David Robinson was better than Hakeem Olajuwon

Hakeem took 240 more shots in 42 games; that can easily discredit your FG argument.

You can't use team record to prove that Robinson > Hakeem when Hakeem has clearly established his dominance in the playoffs.

The OP is right, David Robinson always shows up in the playoffs. Remember how he owned Hakeem that one time they played in the playoffs. You know the year Robinson won MVP? Come on guys don't you remember that year?

Well then obviously the Admiral is much better at kickin it with Jesus than Hakeem.

That part should have obviously been taken as a joke. Unless I'm the dumb one here and everyone else is correct.
