    Dream's by far. Most unstoppable shot for a big since the skyhook.

    I'm going to ruffle a few feathers, I think Kobe's fadeaway is little more deadlier than both MJ's and Olajuwon's. One reason is that he added it to his game alot earlier in his career and he has better shooting range than both players. Also, Kobe has hit some crazy fadeaways from the post all the way the 3 point line.

    I will also throw Nowitzki's in the argument. Same story.

    Still, I have to say Olajuwon's was a little more deadlier and perfected than MJ's. Since, he added to his game a little earlier.

    96-99 Jordan, or Fadeaway Mike with the slight edge over 92-95 Olajuwon.

    don't think so. if you think anybody on that bulls' team could have stopped the 94-95 machine that was Hakeem Olajuwon I'll give you the first ring. but i believe michael jordan was in the playoffs for the second ring, am i wrong? please correct me if i am, sire.

    Jordan's was a true fadeaway whereas Dream's was more of a leaning turnaround jumper. Dream froze the defender with a slight shake, making it less of a need to create space by fading away.

    A 7fter with a fadeaway jumpshot? Really damn for anyone who guards.

    Comparing His Airness and The Dream, I'll have to go with the former. His was the real fadeaway. Post moves? No debate here.
