    Only Houston Dikembe to give Sam a chance.

    Considering this is about Deke in Houston, I voted for Dally. Deke was an intimidator for players driving into the paint but he got owned too many times against other bigs. He could never hold his ground, bigs would back him down with ease.

    lol wow. Mutumbo was one of the best shot blockers in the NBA at 40. Dally aint on Dekes level.

    You can't start threads? I don't know how long I've waited but all I know is that you need to be patient. :)

    I've not been in this forum for long but I can start threads.

    So 35 year old Dikembe vs current Dally isn't close for debate???

    You have some fantism **** going on in here.

    Deke averaged 1 block and 3 def rebounds in his 5 years here.

    Dally is averaging 2 blocks and 5 def rebounds.

    Are you guys serious?

    They both change shots.

    READ THE OP.

    He said the Houston Deke (to make it fair) vs current Dally.

    Gawd
