    thanks Tin- this game must've been right after the tracy murray trade, but before he was introduced at the home game.

    Nothing you can do.

    Hakeem is underrated as a superstar. His game has no peer.

    Imagine if Hakeem was selfish like Kobe and threw up 30+ shots a night back then. He would have averaged 35 points a game.

    It's no knock on Dwight, Hakeem just feels the game differently. Dwight has some tunnel vision about him.

    Plus, any contact today is met with a flop and a whistle on our guy. It's not a big mans league anymore.

    because Dwight waits for his man to come to him before he makes his move.

    Hakeem moves, spins...and waits for no man.

    Yes, and I believe the Rockets were down 1 at halftime, 49-48 if my memory serves me correctly.

    In the second half, Drexler was cleared to play, and the Rockets ended up outscoring the Hornets by 24 I think. In fact, Chucky Brown nailed a 3 at the end of the 3rd quarter to cap off an amazing quarter.

    Great video. I remember Calvin saying "you're witnessing greatness" during Rockets games. I was too young to realize we may never see another Olajuwon. The complete mixed with unique skill. Awesome.

    1) Hakeem
    2) Watt
    3) Earl
    4) Lewis
    5) Moon
    6) Nolan
    7) Bagwell

    I know Dream has told this to Dwight many times, but Dwight really needs to attack the basket quickly before the defense gets a chance to set.

    Dream did this to Alonzo Mourning, Dwight should be able to do this to any Laker's scrub last night.

    Happy we won, Dwight could have dominated .
