Robert Horry on Hakeem Olajuwon vs Shaq: "Hakeem was better. Shaq was more dominant, but Hakeem was better. … I think Dream had more talent. Shaq had handles, but Dream had a little bit better handles. Dream could shoot free throws, and we all know about Shaq’s free throws. Hakeem had a fadeaway."

His 93-94 season is arguably one of the GOAT seasons.

MVP, DPOY, FMVP, All NBA & All DEF 1st team, 3rd in scoring.

AND he won the chip without another All Star on the team. I doubt we’ll ever see anything like it again.

Hakeem was more skilled, could shoot, defend, make FTs and adapt to any offensive scheme.

Shaq was dominant due to his absurd physical attributes and some go to moves that he developed in college and the league but overall the dream was a better basketball player than Shaq.

Shaq is my favorite center of all-time but Hakeem was straight nasty. The footwork and post moves were just so damn good and this is coming from a mid 90’s baby

It's not useful, it's redundant.

But it's sports, no issues here.

Just imagine all the Hakeem threads you'd have made by now if he was white. That should help.

Just trying to talk sense into y’all.

Like we literally in the middle of the playoffs. Can we talk about matchups between current players that can actually happen or are we gonna keep talking about yesteryear?

I apologize I want us to talk about something better than who’s better between players that were dominant 20-30 years ago. Didn’t mean to offend peons

Shaq was the most physically dominate Center ever. With that said skill wise he was not that great. Its more of pick your poison of who is better. Shaq wasn't skilled but you couldn't stop him, except on the free throw line. You couldn't do Hack A Shaq on Keem.

Shaq Diesel was the most unstoppable force this side of KAJ. If he had Hakeem's work ethic and dedication he'd be GOAT center.

Dream was more skilled no doubt.

When Shaq was with the magic he was one of the if not the most skilled centers in the NBA n*ggaz sleep. Ppl wanna say the most dominant no shaq was one of the best players ever. Looking at what he did I believe wit time ppl are gnna see how good of a player he was. Itís not 1 center in todayís game tht could sniff Shaqs jockstrap.
