When they went head to head Shaq got swept and was outclassed by the dream.

Wow, not a Shaq vs Dream thread again.
I'd take Hakeem as my center if I could choose but you can't go wrong with any of them and I understand people who prefer Shaq over Olajuwon.

Shaq got swept and he got outplayed but he wasn't schooled or anything, he actually played Hakeem better than anyone else during Hakeem's back to back wins. Hakeem trashed Ewing in the finals of '94 and he abused MVP David Robinson in '95 but against Shaq it wasn't a abuse or anything, but Shaq got outplayed.

People also claim that Shaq wasn't in his prime but personally I prefered his game back in the days, he was more mobile and all-round.

Ask Hakeem if he could handle 350lb Shaq. Answer is not No FUCCCK NO.

What has weight anything to do with it? Being heavier wouldn't help Shaq because he would be less mobile and Hakeem was fast as a cat..

Dumb post of the Day.

Shaq was in his prime when he was around 350. When he faced Hakeem he was a Skinny little boy out of LSU.

Weight hasn't anything to do with it, idiot. So what, you gain weight and get more skilled? Shaq's game in his first years are so underrated...

That "skinny little boy" was the scoring champ in '95 when he faced Hakeem and he came in 2nd place the year before and he was 2nd on the MVP rank after David Robinson. In fact, he one 1 MVP in the 2000 and he came second twice, one time was in '95 and the last time was in 2005.

He was no "skinny little boy", he was a NBA SUPERSTAR..

Shaq didn't even get outplayed by Hakeem back then in that finals.

Hakeem had to work to get his, and may have had his least efficient playoff series against Shaq.

But Shaq was young then, and I know this couldn't be proven, but I see no way Hakeem could compete with PRIME Shaq.

Wow, are you for real? Yes, I know you meant Shaq in his prime but still that's a retarded point, weight has nothing to do with it.

And again, that "skinny little boy" was the scoring champ in '95 when he faced Hakeem and he came in 2nd place the year before. He was also 2nd on the MVP rank after David Robinson. In fact, he won 1 MVP in the 2000 and he came second twice, one time was in '95 and the last time was in 2005. Don't act like he was some kid far from his prime..

He was no "skinny little boy", he was a NBA SUPERSTAR..

Again this stupid crap about Shaq being so far from his prime, Shaq won 1 MVP during his whole career and he came 2 twice, one of those time were in '95 and he was the scoring champ of the NBA in '95 as well.. Don't be stupid.

Hakeem.

I like Shaq, but the toughest center he ever faced on his way to a title was Deke Mutombo and Ben Wallace.

Compared to Hakeem. Ewing, Robinson and Shaq, the other 3 of the top 4 centers of the 90s.

LOL Dont get me wrong Shaq was a BEAST soon as he came in the league with power and quickness for his size but GTFO if you think a 3 year Shaq was close to being good as 8 years in the League SHAQ.

I think you are not from the States who never really follow Shaq during his prime for you to bring up 1 MVP because Anyone who follow Shaq during the early 2000 era knows SHAQ was the BEST DAM PLAYER in the League but he does have 3 Finals MVP in a ROW so WTF are you talking about.
