Durant is young STILL, and LeBron took some years to get it together... Michael Jordan is responsible for Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller, Patrick Ewing, Kevin Johnson, Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, Karl Malone, Jeff Hornbeck, John Stockton... All great hall of fame players. That have NO RING because of Michael Jordan... Even Clyde Drexler, Hakeem Olajuwon, and David Robinson ONLY HAVE RINGS BECAUSE JORDAN RETIRED!!! Didn't okay against the same talent?? Come on. Not to mention he had to deal with Bird, Magic, Worthy, McHale, Isaiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Dominique Wilkins (even though he was just a good dunker) and Bill Lambier, and even played AGAINST Dennis Rodman and had to get past HIM. What do you mean he didn't have to play against the same talent? Lol via Tre Moneyneversleeps Welcher
Charles Barkley..played basketball to become known. He's not famous like some of greats such as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabaal, Larry Bird, Hakeem Olajuwon, just to mention a few. He's now a basketball commentator and analyst with TNT. As a player he played the game like a brute. There was no courth,or finesse to his game,there was no elegance, no poetry, no relish to his game and hardly looked like an athlete. He was un- athletically big and over-weight. Charles had " big-mouth" as a player and he often spoke the he played - "FOOLISH". That earned him a lot disciplinary penalties and fines by the league during his career. Wondering where I'm going with this? Recently as most of the sense able world expressed their dismay, dissatisfaction and even disgust at the situation in Ferguson Missouri and the out-come of the "ground" jury investigation by protests, even though some aspects of the protests was marred by violence and looting ( well no worse than killing an unarmed teenager by a c ...

They have 3 players drafted in top 5 picks in the 2003 NBA Draft in James, Bosh & Wade, the three point shooter in the history of the game in Ray Allen, another three point shooter in the all-time top ten in Rashard Lewis. The Heat should be blowing San Antonio out. Just picking 3 players from the 1984 draft class and imagining if they played together...Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan & Charles Barkley.
I saw this on ballislife.com a few days ago and its got me thinking. how would i make my team. You are given a limit of $15 to select 5 players (1 player for each position). Each player is given a specific value. How would you go and build your team? Here are the players, values in there respective positions: PG - Magic Johnson($5), Oscar Robertson($4), Isiah Thomas($3), John Stockton($2), Walt Frazier($1) SG - Michael Jordan($5), Kobe Bryant($4), Jerry West($3), Clyde Drexler($2), Dwayne Wade($1) SF - Lebron James($5), Larry Bird($4), Julius Erving($3), Kevin Durant($2), Scottie Pippen($1) PF - Karl Malone($5), Charles Barkley($4), Tim Duncan($3), Dirk Nowitzki($2), Kevin Garnett($1) C - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar($5), Bill Russell($4), Wilt Chamberlain($3), Shaquille O'Neal($2), Hakeem Olajuwon($1) I an trying to figure my team out. *** .

Favorite athletes of all time? — Muhammad Ali, Jerry Rice, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, KD, Megatron.
Let me show you how NBA players have changed over the years. I'm about to name off some of great players from back in the days: Larry Bird, Isiah Thoams, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, David Robinson, Pat Ewing, Charles Barkley, Julius Erving, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dominique Wilkins, Wilt Chamberlin, George Gervin, Pistol Pete Maverick. Now I'm about to name off the "Great Players" of today: Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dewayne Wade, Kevin Durante, Paul George, Russell Westbrook(Maybe).do you see the difference?
In the 1984 NBA draft two players were chosen ahead of Michael Jordan , one was Hakeem Olajuwon . who was the other? a) sam perkins, b) Patrick Ewing, c) Sam Bowie, d) Charles Barkley
New York Knick player under arrest for second and third degree weapon possession. I say get rid of him. Charles Barkley mentioned that David Stern left a legacy of getting the NBA to a higher reputation than ever. I highly disagree. The 90's had BY FAR more players who I admired both on and off the court who also had loyalty. Players like David Robinson, Hakeem Olajuwon, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Clyde Drexler, Gary Payton, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Grant Hill, Patrick Ewing, Reggie Miller, Mitch Richmond, Kevin Johnson, Dan Marjerle, Penny Hardaway, Joe Dumars, Alonzo Mourning, Dominique Wilkins. The list goes on and on. Players who played with fundamentals, weren't show offs and stayed out of trouble. You had three quality Dream Teams. I don't remember growing up watching so many players get arrested, getting DUI's, etc. the only way to reverse the trend is to not tolerate it.
Players who have scored 26K+ points with 1 team: Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Hakeem Olajuwon, John Havlicek, Dirk Nowtizki
26,000 points for Nowitzki From Elias: Dirk Nowitzki scored 38 points - including the 26,000th of his career - in the Mavericks' home loss to the Rockets on Wednesday night. All of Nowitzki's points have come in a Mavericks uniform making him one of six players in NBA history to score 26,000 points with one franchise, joining Karl Malone (Jazz), Kobe Bryant (Lakers), Michael Jordan (Bulls), Hakeem Olajuwon (Rockets) and John Havlicek (Celtics).
I'll take Chris Paul, Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Hakeem Olajuwon and Russell. That's my starting 5.
I sure do miss watching the NBA. Wish they still played. That's right they still do only now there's only 5 stars league wide. Remember when there were like 50 some stars? I'm talking Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Isaiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Dennis Rodman, Larry Bird, David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Shaquille o'neal, Dominique Wilkins, Charles Barkley, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Alonzo morning, Larry Johnson, Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, Chris webber, Tim Hardaway, Chris Mullin, Reggie Miller, Vince carter, Latrell sprewell (dude choked his coach), and MANUTE BOL! Ok just kidding about Bol.
If I was a(n) NBA Basketball coach and I had to pick my starting 5 out of any player to ever live I would put Michael Jordan at PG, Kobe Bryant at SG, Clyde Drexler at SF, Hakeem Olajuwon at PF, and Wilt Chamberlain at C. If you think you have a better team than that, comment your Dream Team and like!
Hi. I just wanted to invite all of you to check out my book "Pro Basketball's All-Time All-Stars: Across The Eras," which follows the evolution of the pro game and it's players, examines the greatest players to perform in each of the five distinct eras I identify, and then ranks the 5 greatest players all-time at each of the 5 positions on the court. You can read about legendary players such as Bob Pettit, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. Meanwhile, recent greats such as Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Hakeem Olajuwon, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade & Kevin Durant are also discussed at length. I think that it would make a great Christmas present for the basketball fan in your life. Not currently available in bookstores, my book may be purchased either through Amazon or Barnes&Noble.com. Thank you for your time, and have a nice day. Best Wishes, Bob Cohen

Good evening NBA fans I'm your latest addition to the real NBA talk family my name is Roland. I rep the Houston Rockets. My all time favorite players are Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan. My current favorite players are James Harden, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard. I hope to bring you interesting topics and exciting debates.
Misconception Drafting Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan was the single most colossal blunder in the history of basketball. How could the Trailblazers even think to not choose his Airness ? And for what, a guy who couldn't even get on the court without breaking his leg. The Facts In the 1984 draft, the Portland Trailblazers drafted Sam Bowie, a 7'1 center/power forward from Kentucky with the second overall pick. The first pick was center Hakeem Olajuwon [then known as Akeem]. The third pick was Michael Jordan, a 6'6 swing player from North Carolina. While Olajuwon has gone on to have a Hall of Fame career and Michael Jordan is considered by many as the greatest player of all-time, Bowie led a long but unremarkable career, coming back from a string of career-threatening leg injuries. For most of Bowie's career, when healthy, he was a good rebounder and passer, demonstrating excellent touch for a man his size. His dedication to rehabilitate and play despite the option of quitting the sport while keeping his con ...
After 30 years of being commissioner of the NBA. David Stern is stepping down and making way for Adam Silver. Stern has truly globalised the NBA (with a little help from the Dream Team of 92) and has called on the draft stage some of the best talent this game has ever seen. Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, and thr flux of International players such as Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki etc.. Thank you David!! Welcome Adam.

My Top 5 Top NBA FINALS OF ALL TIME Detriot Pistons vs. Los Angeles Lakers pure drama still to this day the most physical NBA Finals I've ever watched in my life and in my opinion games 6 & 7 are still the two best finals games in my lifetime. Chicago Bulls vs. Phoenix Suns out of all of Michael Jordan trips to the NBA Finals the 93 finals was the most draining physical series out of all MJ'S 6 trips in addition Jordan Barkley gave us dual after dual after duel to me it was the most entertaining out of Jordans all 6 trips to the finals and I've always wondered if John Paxson does not have that 3 in game 6 could Phoenix win game 7??? Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers Game 1 started with The Memorial Day massacre and doubt crept into the Lakers head again after heartbreak in 1984 But In Game 2 The Captain hello this is most memorable performances in the finals and thus the Lakers finally broke through and beat the Celtics in The Finals 1994 New York Knicks vs. Houston Rockets I put this message on here ...
My love for the game of basketball is officially over. Ain't giving NO respect nor credit to LBJ. His 1 1/2 Championship*s isn't even respectable nor earned among the true greats of Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Shaq and especially Kobe Bryant. None of them ever went crying for help to other team nor use FLOPPING advantages.
1984–1998: The Michael Jordan era[edit] Michael Jordan was drafted third overall by the Bulls in 1984. He won six championships and six Finals MVPs for Chicago. In the summer of 1984 the team's fortunes changed forever when it received the third pick of the 1984 NBA Draft, after Houston and Portland. The Rockets selected Hakeem Olajuwon, the Blazers jumped on Sam Bowie, and the Bulls grabbed shooting guard Michael Jordan. The team, with new management in owner Jerry Reinsdorf and General Manager Jerry Krause, decided to rebuild around Jordan. Jordan set franchise records during his rookie campaign for scoring (3rd in the league) and steals (4th in the league), and led the Bulls back to the playoffs, but lost in four games to the Milwaukee Bucks. For his efforts, he was rewarded with a selection to the All-NBA Second Team and the NBA Rookie of the Year Award. In the following offseason, the team acquired point guard John Paxson and on draft day traded with the Cavaliers for the rights to power forward Ch ...

I see a lot of all-time NBA top ten players lately, and some debate whether Tim Duncan has earned a spot on that list. For what it is worth, as a long-time fan and student of basketball, here is my all-time NBA-ABA-collegiate top 25(I tried to narrow it to ten, but I was leaving out too many great players)-- In order, regardless of position: (1) Wilt Chamberlain (2) Michael Jordan (3) Bill Russell (4) Oscar Robertson (5) Larry Bird (6) Dr. J, Julius Erving (my favorite player of all time, BTW) (7) Magic Johnson (8) Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (9) Lebron James (10) Tim Duncan (11) Kobe Bryant (12) Bob Pettit (13) John Stockton (14) Jerry West (15) Hakeem Olajuwon (16) Shaquille O'Neal (17) John Havlicek (18) Isiah Thomas (19) Elgin Baylor (20) Karl Malone (21) Rick Barry (22) Mel Daniels (23) Charles Barkley (24) David Robinson (25) "Pistol" Pete Maravich (still holds the record as the top collegiate scorer of all time, and did that in three years) Honorable mention-- Elvin Hayes, Bill Walton( Walton was the best ...
So, a couple of us have been kicking around an NBA "80s All-Stars vs. 90s All-Stars" discussion for a few days. As for my usual (especially when I have a paper due), I decided to sit down and poke at the stats for a little bit. Basically what I came up with is that there was some really poor team selection going on, and it really looks like the 90s team could just wallop the 80s team. The full numbers I ran are here: went off of win share, and WS/48 (win share per 48 minutes on the court, which is helpful for evaluating someone who, say, didn't play all 10 years of a decade), and limited that to just the decades defines by 80-81 to 89-90, and 90-91 to 98-99. The original starting five for the 80s was: 1.Magic Johnson, PG 2.Clyde Drexler, SG 3.Larry Bird, SF 4.Kevin McHale, PF 5.Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, C While the original starting five for the 90s was: 1.John Stockton, PG 2.Michael Jordan, SG 3.Scottie Pippen, SF 4.Karl Malone, PF 5.Hakeem Olajuwon, C Couple of big errors here. First, Jordan absolutely snot- ...

Need y'all's help so if u know basketball please comment. If Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Tim Duncan and Shaq played a series best of 7 against Isaiah Thomas, Kobe Bryant, Larry Bird, Karl Malone and Hakeem Olajuwon???
Amazing stat for my fellow NBA junkies...for 22 straight years one of the following 5 players have appeared in the NBA Finals - Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Shaq and Kobe Bryant. If you go back 26 years the same can be said if you add Isiah Thomas & Magic Johnson to this list of players. Lesson being...outside of our beloved 2004 Pistons it takes a superstar to win a ring to work Joe D
My Favourite players of all time (not in any particular order); Magic Johnson. Allen Iverson. Lebron James. Michael Jordan. (I respect him as a player but some of the stuff he says makes him look like an *** . Tim Duncan. Patty Mills! (Australian Legend). Andrew Bogut. (He is Australian so I have to support him). Hakeem Olajuwon. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Favourite gods: Brian Scalabrine.
If I could choose a basketball "Dream Team" of 10 players, it'll be as follows. Players in () are off the bench. PG: Magic Johnson (Oscar Robertson) SG: Michael Jordan (Dwayne Wade) SF: Lebron James (John Havlicek) PF: Larry Bird (Tim Duncan) Centre: Hakeem Olajuwon (Kareem Abdul Jabbar) Miami's current team has two of the above, and other great players, such as Chris Bosh and Ray Allen ... Which is why I think they are the clear favourites.
NBA: The 2013 All-NBA First Team was announced today (Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Lebron James and Tim Duncan). This may very well be the most dominant All-NBA team, both for one season, as well as from a historical perspective, since 1988 (Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, and Hakeem Olajuwon).
Jamal be like "My Starting line-up Allen Iverson, Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Hakeem Olajuwon"
to think that the Rockets could have had Clyde Drexler, Hakeem Olajuwon AND Michael Jordan on the same team smdh
Michael Jordan, Clyde Drexler, Patrick Ewing, Chris Mullin, and Hakeem Olajuwon all played in college in the same year.that's crazy
Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Clyde Drexler, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Sean Elliott. That would be my team. I think! So many choices! What would be your starting 5 NCAA players of all time be? Not based on NBA careers.
The Top 10 disappointments of the season I am old school and maybe I am not the perfect person to identify the Top 10 disappointments. It's difficult because I can't accept players jacking up shots without regard to percentages. Although over the years the NBA has made it easier to score points by making it illegal to hand-check, many still they shoot poor percentages. Carmelo Anthony is said to be the best all-around scorer in the league, but he shoots 44 percent. Russell Westbrook has taken more shots than Kevin Durant, but he is shooting 44 percent while Durant makes 51 percent of his attempts. Damian Lillard will most likely be Rookie of the Year, but shoots a poor 42 percent. All-Star Paul George is shooting 43 percent. Allen Iverson set the tone in 2000-01 when he won the MVP award making just 42 percent of his shots. I couldn't imagine Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley or Karl Malone shooting a poor percentage during their heyday. That's why it's no mistake ...
TEAM: Don't get caught in the hype. Some of these NBA players are not very good Basketball players. Some of them are fantastic athlete, some of them are very skilled too. But without superior understanding of the game, fundamentals, superior Bball IQ and will to dominate, one cannot be considered a great player. Only a few have been great in the generation I witnessed. Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Isiah Thomas, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson, John Stockton, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Shaq, Tim Duncan, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley, Chris Paul (He already belongs), maybe Lebron (I just need him to have some skills), Allen Iverson (He could have been greater with more discipline). That's all I can think of. Did I miss anybody?
Do you think this team would win 10 championships? Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Julius Erving, Shaq, and Kareem Abdul Jabbar starting five and coming off the beach. Isiah Thomas, Ray Allen, Kobe, Lebron James, David Robinson, Hakeem Olajuwon, D. Rose. If not why?
*** watched a great documentary ok besides my cousin and brother who was drafted before Michael Jordan
why does Michael Jordan feel the need to continue to make comments about Lebron James? MJ having a hard time not being in the spotlight? or does he know inside that LBJ is a superior talent? Some jealousy there for sure.
Sports info of the Day: In the 1984 draft class Michael Jordan was not the 1st overall pick. It was Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon chosen by the Houston Rockets. Sam Bowie was the 2nd pick chosen by the Portland Trailblazers. Michael Jordan was actually the 3rd pick by the Chicago Bulls. Notable Picks: Charles Barkley was 5th pick by the Sixers, John Stockton was 16th by the Utah Jazz. Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle was the 70th pick by the Boston Celtics. Brazilian Oscar Schmidt was 131st by the NJ/Brooklyn Nets and he never joined the NBA but played elsewhere to finish his career with 49,703 points. That's more than NBA leader Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who finish with 38,387pts. Carl Lewis was 208th pick by the Bulls but instead of playing he continued with his track and field dream. He went on to win nine Olympic gold medals and eight World Championships gold medals. This is why this is one of the best draft class ever. It produced four NBA hall of famers in Jordan, Olajuwon, Stockton, and Barkley. Rick Carlisle ...
It's the last Sunday of February 2013 and after four more days it's sayonara to the bunch born within the zodiac sign of Aquarius. If truth be told, I have been celebrating the fact that there's a nice proud line of people, past or present that pumps a little air of pride into the ol'heart. Simpy sharing the same zodiac month with them gives you a lift somehow. A lot of personalities from the world of arts and Literature, civil rights and sport.

Eyes on Alice Walker, Bob Marley, Mozart, Oprah Winfrey, Sam Cooke, Clarke Gable, Smokie Robinson, Alicia Keys, Langston Hughes, Norman Mailer, Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan and Ronald Reagan, my poor heart did a triple somersault!

On this day two years ago, Kobe Bryant (born 08/23/1978) scored his 25,000th career point on a 2nd-quarter free throw. He finished the game with 31 points. Unfortunately, he was 12-31 from the field and the Lakers shot 39 percent (32-83) from the field as a team as Lebron James' 37 points and nine assists and the Cavaliers shooting 48 percent from the field in the game were too much for the Lakers to overcome as the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 93-87 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Bryant became the 15th player in NBA history to reach 25,000 points and the youngest player to do so. The other 14 players on that list are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O'Neal, Moses Malone, Elvin Hayes, Hakeem Olajuwon, Oscar Robertson, Dominique Wilkins, John Havlicek, Alex English, Reggie Miller, and Jerry West. That loss actually proved to be a fluke because he eventually led the Los Angeles Lakers to an NBA title that season where he was ...
Say what u want, but the top 5 players all-time is: 1.Michael Jordan 2.Kobe Bryant 3.Lebron James 4.Hakeem Olajuwon 5.Oscar Robinson
(Sam Bowie Lied About Injuries To Get Drafted Before Jordan.) The 7’1″ Sam Bowie had some pretty good years in the NBA, but he will be remembered by many as the player taken ahead of Michael Jordan. Bowie was taken in between two legends; Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan. Tough expectations to live up to for anyone, as being mentioned in the same breath as two of the best players ever is a very high standard. Years later, Sam Bowie admits that he had lied to teams about injuries in order to be drafted as high as possible. Isn't that selfish ? - Arvin
I saw ESPN had this poll question of the better NBA Draft all-time? 1984: Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley 2003: Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony Any takers?
lebron, rondo, Chris Paul, d wade, d rose, kobe of modern basketball! But my favourites are hakeem olajuwon and Michael Jordan!
Is there a more over-hyped athlete in all of sports than Derrick Rose? The guy won't be back until Christmas... at the earliest, yet Adidas has to SPAM every network out there with "The Return" shoe commercials acting like he is the second coming of basketball Jesus, Michael Jordan. We get it, he plays in Chicago, Lebron James made 100's of sportswriters look stupid by signing in Miami instead of Chicago or New York and he STOLE the MVP from Dwight Howard because he became the "media darling". If Steve Francis would have come out in 2009 and not 1999 to Houston we would have got the SAME hype machine Rose is getting now because of how big a market draw Houston is in China. Rose is just a Steve Francis clone with MUCH better talent around him. To say Cuttino Mobley was/is better than Luol Deng shows how ignorant of a fan of basketball you are. To even say Hakeem Olajuwon or Charles Barkley STILL had the talent Joakim Noah or Carlos Boozer have today is stupid and to say that Kelvin Cato or Kenny Thom ...
You know Hakeem olajuwon is a great player when nobody ever criticized Houston for taking him over Michael Jordan
Everyone know that i WAS NOT a Michael Jordan fan AT ALL! (Hakeem Olajuwon was and ALWAYS will be my favorite basketball player of all time), but the Black and White Jordan XI's are my favorite shoes! (Right after a fresh pair of all white Forces)
Who was better on the blocks, Michael Jordan or Hakeem Olajuwon?
What if Michael Jordan was picked 1st overall in the 1984 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets instead of Hakeem Olajuwon?

John Salley says Jordan not even his top 5 he played against John Sally was on the ESPN’s Colin Cowherd show and said that Michael Jordan is not even in the top five players Salley ever played against. He puts Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Hakeem Olajuwon above Jordan on the all-time list. Even Kevin McHale is higher on Salley’s list. He thought Isiah Thomas was the best he ever played with — and he was on a Jordan Bulls team.
Here's a quote from the dim-witted *** John Salley, "I think the greatest player I've ever played against was Magic Johnson. Next, was Larry Bird. Then, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The hardest guy I had to guard: Hakeem Olajuwon. No one can guard Hakeem. And then, Kevin McHale." There is NO mention of a man named Michael Jordan in that quote. Wait, not in the TOP 5???!!! He goes on to say that Isiah Thomas was the best player he ever played with despite being on the same team as Jordan in 1996. I looked around and noticed that John Salley said this about Jordan a few years back on NBC... "One time we were practicing, scrimmaging, and [Bulls coach] Phil Jackson forced him not to practice. He had on canvas tennis shoes, which was proof that it's not the shoes. He put Dennis Rodman, James Douglas and myself on the same squad for scrimmage. And Michael tied up those canvas [shoes] and said, 'I'm playing.' "I literally saw Superman enter the building. He took off to dunk on me and he just yelled, 'Block this, ...

I wish I could put this team here together and every player in their prime Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Shaq, then I'd have Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo, Lebron, Point guards would be Magic Johnson, Chris Paul, and John Stockton. And two more players Clyde the glide drexler, Chris Mullin, Charles Barkley, and Michael Jordan. This my dream roster LMS and make your own.
The greatest testament to Hakeem Olajuwon is the Rockets are never bashed for not drafting Michael Jordan, unlike the Portland Trailblazers.
Lebron James has been compared to basketball greats like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Hakeem Olajuwon. Watch as LeBron tells Oprah why he doesn't track statistics or try to break records.
I don't wanna be like Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson.. I wanna be Hakeem Olajuwon and a Larry Bird (:
We’re all told that stealing is bad. That’s a lie. Sometimes stealing can be good. Hey! don't crucify me yet until you finish the test. Here are some of the greatest thieves of all time… Steve Jobs admits in his biography that Apple has always been shameless about stealing great ideas. He says that they swiped the concepts that Braun Products used to design speakers and radios in the 1950’s and 1960’s and applied them to Apple products — creating Apple’s monitors and the iPod. Michael Jackson robbed from James Brown, Jackie Wilson, The Beatles and Little Richard to create his own unique singing and dancing style starting at age 8. He later became the “King of Pop.” He even stole his signature dance move, “the moonwalk.” from Soul Train dancers Geron “Caszper” Canidate and Cooley Jackson and practiced it two years before he ever performed it onstage. Kobe Bryant watched tapes and swiped basketball moves from Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Hakeem Olajuwon and Dr. J to become on ...
NBA research. There has only been 5 sets of teammates that have scored 30 or more points in an nba finals game since 1986: June 9, 2002: L.A. Lakers, Kobe Bryant (36), Shaquille O’Neal (35) June 10, 2001: L.A. Lakers, Kobe Bryant (32), Shaquille O’Neal (30) June 9, 1995: Orlando, Shaquille O’Neal (33), Penny Hardaway (32) June 9, 1995: Houston, Hakeem Olajuwon (34), Sam Cassell (31) June 12, 1991: Chicago, Scottie Pippen (32), Michael Jordan (30) June 12, 1990: Portland, Clyde Drexler (34), Jerome Kersey (33) Shaq/Kobe done it twice...Shaq overall 3 times with Hardaway.we have come close in this finals with Westbrook/Durant and James/Wade/Chalmers. I'm amazed that Jordan and Pippen only done it once.and Shaq/Hardaway done it the same game that Olajuwon/Cassell done it...You had 4 players that scored 30 points each in one game..but the Rockets walked away with the Championship...back to back (94 and 95)..Jordan years off...amazing... Game 5...Go Heats...
Regardless of what people say about LeBron, heading into Game 4, James is averaging 30.7 points and 9.7 rebounds in the playoffs. Here’s the list of players who have averaged at least 30.7 points and 9.7 boards in a postseason during the modern era: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Shaquille O’Neal. Hakeem Olajuwon. That’s it. That’s the list. Three of the all-time great hall of fame centers. Love him or hate him, one thing that can't be denied. He is a freak of nature, who can guard the quickest point guards like Derrick Rose AND the top centers like Dwight Howard, dish out assists like Magic Johnson, rebound like Karl Malone, and drive to the rack like Michael Jordan. All you haters keep hating, cause the King is like the Honey Badger and he don't give a s*%@
Ok Houston Rockets I give you a pass for drafting Hakeem Olajuwon with the number one overall pick n 84, but Portland Trailblazers you got to be the most dumb founded organization in the NBA how you draft Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan but then you go in draft Gregg Odom over Kevin Durant! In my stephen A. Smith voice this is ridiculous, obnoxious, pitiful, explicable, lol n so on
If I had to make an all time team, it would be: PG-Magic Johnson, SG- Michael Jordan, SF- Elgin Baylor, PF- Hakeem Olajuwon, C- Abdul-Jabbar
People say that there will never be another Michael Jordan but there will never be another Hakeem Olajuwon!
I think Michael Jordan in 1987-88, as well as Hakeem Olajuwon in 1993-94 are the only two to win MVP and Defensive Player in the same season
According to all of the die hard Michael Jordan fans MJ could score like Wilt, have the post game of Hakeem Olajuwon, the rebounding ability of Dennis Rodman, the defense to stop a rhino in it's tracks, and the winning pedigree of Bill Russell. No MJ is not perfect and yes Kobe does do things better than he did you just have to deal with it.

When I see the Michael Jordan ESPN commercial it makes me think of all of the Hakeem Olajuwon's out there living with the same problem
Lebron called Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon for direction in winning a championship. Why is he calling anyone in the first place?? Real Champions have it in their hearts that it's their responsibility to be the leader to win.
I was a couple feet away from Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon and they were talking about Michael Jordan.
Hakeem Olajuwon or Michael Jordan,,,who was better ?
I have studied the game from the best, Elgin Baylor, Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan ... But the 90% that i learn was from him. - Kobe Bryant
all time best line up: Jerry West, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Hakeem Olajuwon, Wilt Chamberlain
Who were the two players drafted before Michael Jordan in 1984? Hakeem Olajuwon and Sam Bowie
If you never witnessed the careers of Michael Jordan or Hakeem Olajuwon live (as in, got to see them in their heyday), you dont count
What would be your all time starting 5? Mine would be. 1. Magic Johnson 2. Michael Jordan 3. Lebron James 4. Hakeem Olajuwon 5. Shaquille O'neal Who's beating that?
Had no idea Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and John Stockton all came out of the 1984 NBA draft. Talk about
Players that we will never see again and therefore shouldn't ever be compared to : Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon
Random Thought: If I were to start an NBA TEAM...my first 2 players I would pick would be Michael Jordan & Hakeem Olajuwon!
Link to the facts: here: Podcast: Bryant vs Michael Jordan comparison, in detail with live facts!!! First and foremost, the only reason this video is necessary, and us hardcore sports fans debunking hype over the years here on youtube when it pertains to Kobe, it's not because the comparison is close, which you will see in the video, IT'S BECAUSE THE MEDIA AND KOBETARDS CAN BE SO *** IGNORANT. Let's face it, Michael was a better ball handler, shooter, defender, rebounder, passer, and leader than Kobe Bryant. Excuse me for telling the truth, in this video I outline the actual facts to prove what I say is true. Michael Jordan was clearly a more effective player. You see Kobe use some of Michael Jordan's on-the-ball moves, and you think he's automatically up there with MJ just for trying to emulate the greatest. I'm sorry but Kobe does NOT leap frog other legends like Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Big O Oscar Robertson, Tim Duncan, Shaq O'Neal, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, and other ...
