Default Hakeem Olajuwon is beginning to become quite overrated here.

I have seen some pretty ridiculous comments about the legacy of Hakeem on ISH lately, especially the GOAT centre thread. Does anyone else think he is rapidly becoming overrated on ISH?

most of the people on this board are probably not even old enough to even make comments about Hakeem. If all you have seen of Hakeem is youtube videos then you got no right to comment on Hakeem.

I hate ranking players by a number or whatever. I much rather a Tier system, and Hakeem is in that top tier of great centres of all time.

You are confusing Hakeem with Kobe.

No, Hakeem is not overrated here. Bill Russell defintley is and Wilt probably is as well(due to his early stats).

When people started putting Hakeem in the same category as Wilt and Kareem, he became overrated. He is clearly on an entire tier below them.

Exactly. Revisionism. Hakeem was never considered that great (GOAT level) when he was playing. This internet thing is mostly by people who never saw him play.


Of the top 5 centers ever, Olajuwon is the only who did not win an MVP before he was 30.

Goat center? No way. He did not dominate his own era like Shaq, Wilt or Kareem.
