    most people say t-mac was one of the most naturally talented player during his magic and early rocket years. my question is.....has there ever been a houston rocket who had more natural ability than mcgrady? i cant think of one, maybe hakeem?

    Maybe Hakeem? Dude Dream by far!! The combination of speed, agility, toughness, just overall, on both ends of the court! Tracy isn't even in the same sentence.

    I think number 34 might have something to say about that.

    Hakeem
    Yao
    T-Mac

    People like Gerald Green have been just as athletic as T-Mac.

    Nobody could ever match the grace and fluidity of one Ryan Bowen... the pinnacle of human athleticism.

    As long as Hakeem, Bowen, and Brian Cook are in the mix I don't think you'll ever definitively settle this.

    Hakeem's jersey is outside the TC for a reason.

    My suggestion would be that you do some research before starting threads if you want to avoid embarrassing yourself. Having said that, welcome to the board.

    (and lay low for awhile!)

    No. Let's not bring his name up for awhile. We've moved on, and no, I'm not a Tmac "hater," but the page has turned.

    LOL Tmac was talented but the OP's got to be on crack. Tmac had durability issues. Hakeem was not only more talented and physically athletic he was as durable as DH and played elite b-ball for more than a decade.

    I think Hakeem Olajuwon was a pretty talented player
