    Kenny talked too much during the highlights, you could tell Shaq wanted to talk about his own moves but was overwhelming by Kenny haha.

    Good video but I think the closer to the block the better contrary to what Charles says. You can still head fake left and right and pump fake without moving and then you hook'em, fadeaway, glass.........

    One more reason I miss the NBA of the 90s. So many epic matchups between legit centers. Skill (Hakeem) vs. Power (Shaq) vs. Toughness (Ewing) vs. a Stiff (Robinson). Skill won.

    It so much more balanced back then--with great players at every position. Now? They all play from the outside, even the big men.

    Robinson was no stiff bro. If David was in the league today he'd be then top center by miles!

    The Dream highlights were sweet. Schooling everybody.
    Shaking Anthony Mason with basically and elite 2 guard move.

    Thanks! I was hoping to catch this video sometime.

    As much as I loved Hakeem and appreciated his rare level of skill in the '90s, I didn't realize just how rare his level of skill was until much later. Watching the big men of this past decade has just been pitiful. Thanks a lot Dream for spoiling the NBA for me!

    Even though it's been almost 30 years, I still cant believe that we were able to trade a bunch of role players and first round picks for Dream.

    Watching Olajuwon's moves is always a treat.

    Damn Shaq almost mirrored Hakeem's turnaround baseline move in that one clip from Orlando.

    No, we straight up got Dream through the draft with our #14 pick.
