    Zero clue who the others are between Dream and Carl Lewis. I guess they play (or played) irrelevant non athletic sports.

    Zo was a great competitor, a very fine defender and a underrated offensive player. Hakeem handled him with ease. He is the best all round center of all time.

    The Unbeatable Dream!

    VY went to Madison High School, that is HISD, Houston Independent School District (no fort bend or katy or woodlands )

    Most Houston students who have high SAT scores go to UT.

    VY has said he loves Houston, even when he played in Nashville.

    Johnny Football, Kevin Kolb, Case Keenum, Andre Ware never won a national championship representing the entire state of Texas

    VY had the key to the city in 2005

    VY is also a diehard Rockets fan.

    Stole my thunder. I was just about to say this. He is the best all around center of all time. I say that there may be a couple with better offensive games, and may be a couple with better defensive games, but none had the all around game as he did. Wilt, Kareem, maybe Shaq had more offensive dominance but not the presence on defensive end. Russell and maybe Mutombo had more defensive dominance, but nowhere near his offensive game.

    Dream's game was so smooth. Also people forgot how much of a beast he was in the paint, he's boxing out Alonzo with ease.

    Thanks for the information, but I still take Beyonce before Vince.

    Beyonce would have hooked up with Tupac if he wasn't dead.

    man that was fun to watch. Olajuwon had a little bit of cockiness to him as well but in his humble way. When Zo was arguing that call towards the end, you saw a small smirk there

    Actually not replying to post. Your 2nd heartbreak on your signature I'm pretty sure was '93 Rockets. '92 team was the 1st of 6 Rockets teams to finish above .500 and not make playoffs and we got Horry in draft. '01, '03, '10, '11, '12 are the other 5, I hate the east so much!
