Default Robert Horry - Hakeem is the Best, Shaq and Duncan can fight for # 2

Robert Horry says Hakeem is the best, Duncan and Shaq can fight for number 2

"When asked who was the best center he ever played with, Horry, who played the middle for the Crimson Tide, didn’t bat an eyelash when he declared former Houston Rockets’ great Hakeem Olajuwon as the top slotman.
“He was so talented and could do so many different things. I’d put him on top and Tim [Duncan] and Shaquille [O’Neal] can trade places for second and third.”
Horry then paused, smiled, and made sure he was clear with his intentions, “Hey, Shaq and Tim...I love you guys, okay?”

A Blind man could see that. Shaq had to many weaknesses. Horrible free-throe shooting, Out of shape alot, Bad transition D, Defense for his size should have been a lot better, Can't do anything 10 feet away from the basket


Hakeem is the whole package. HE can do everything.

Shaq was definitely better than Hakeem. Better and more efficient scorer, better rebounder and better passer.`

he played with Hakeem his first 4 seasons in the league and I'm sure it made a positive/significant impact on the young Horry, in showing him what it means to win, to be the best of the best, to be a complete player and leader... I don't really (care to) disagree with him, between all 4 players they have almost 20 rings and most of the ones since 1994. Trying to rank them is like trying to rank a 24 carat diamond and a 25 carat diamond, etc. Holding Hakeem highest is no slight to anyone.

Uh...Hakeem was most definitely a better rebounder and passer. Also scoring efficiency is very close when you include free throws.

Hakeem was undoubtedly the better defender

It's an opinion, and it's not a stupid one either. Horry won his first two Championships playing alongside Hakeem. The first time you win and especially a Championship is usually the best tasting and most memorable one. All three of these players are interchangeable to me, but Hakeem is the only one that cannot control his own fate since he's retired and out of the league and isn't coming back........ On the other hand, both O'Neal and Duncan can contol their own fate since they still have some game in them.

Wow, Joyner continues to prove he knows nothing about the game of basketball. You didn't even watch Olajuwon in his prime, and probably not Shaq for that matter either.

Olajuwon a better rebounder? Nope, but atleast that's not a crazy statement.

Olajuwon a better passer? Shaq was without question the more skilled passer. Olajuwon was more turnover prone and capable of less spectacular passes consistently.

As far as including free throws? there is a flaw to that, there's all of the and 1's Shaq converted(and there were a lot due to his strength), plus there was the hack-a-Shaq which took up only a couple of seconds of their possession.

And Olajuwon still falls short, while also failing to put up the season scoring numbers O'Neal did.
