    Maybe the post up game is still alive and well across the pond? It's gone the way of the peach baskets over here.

    Olajuwon is a true ambassador of the game of basketball. His legend grows day by day.

    He's a much better player than the media gives him credit for, but he's so humble that it doesn't bother him.
    Same with him off the court.

    He dominated both sides of the court and had superior leadership skills. The best Rocket of all time.

    + John Stockton
    + Dennis Rodman
    + Kevin Johnson (I think he will get in)
    + had injuries not ended his career, Penny Hardaway.

    Hakeem slayed these giants of the game, and humbled Michael Jordan and the rest of the Bulls, even when he was fasting in Ramadan. That's something that the new generation fans may not be aware of.
