    From the article linked from the tweet: http://ballislife.com/hakeem-olajuwon-the-triplequadruplequintuple-double-threat/

    What hasn’t been mentioned outside of his quadruple game is where Hakeem stands in the steals department. How about 8th all-time? That’s ahead of Alvin Robertson, Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, Isiah Thomas and Magic Johnson!

    I'd love to see an in-depth highlights video of Hakeem's quadruple double(s).

    What makes his steals soo impressive is his blocks. Many of the greatest ball thieves did a lot of gambling leaving their team to play 4 on 5. Dream didn't gamble, those were mostly strips and pokes from around the back. When Dream didn't get the steal, he would either change or block the shot. Dreams combined steals and blocks may never be broken by a single player, especially with blocks going way down over the last decade or two.

    I like this quote from the article (which is a big ole Hakeem lovefest with lots of video, and I highly recommend it to everyone):

    There used to be a conspiracy that Hakeem was getting credited for a block and a steal on the same play by blocking a shot and then grabbing possession of the ball.

    Not enough credit go to olujuwon sweeping the magic and Shaquille O'Neal.

    Kenny Smith doesn't get enough credit for that finals game where he hit six or seven three's against magic in the series sweep.

    Harden is nice but Kenny Smith hit six or seven three's in a finals game! How did Kenny Smith do it?
