Can any one stop Hakeem Olajuwon when he was young? Does he have the same impact as Shaq. I think Hakeem is at least equal to Shaq if not greater than Shaq. As for Shaq, it is true that no one can stop him when he was young. Let's hope when Yao gets more matured, no one can stop him either.


Hakeem was a great defender, but everything else, Shaq is much more dominating.

Shaq, TO DATE, is the best player to have played the game or whatever term you choose.

Below is a partial list provided by Elliott Kalk who is known as Mr. Stat.

IMO, Shaq is and has been in a class of his own for a while. Only Hakeem, who was in his prime, could play a young Shaq. I imagine someone will eclipse him as the best player to have played the game but it won't happen for another few years or so.

The only player who I believe might be able to overtake Shaq as the NUMBER 1 player to have played the game is Tim Duncan. It looks like Duncan might dominate the NBA for the next 5 years. I don't think there is a team in the NBA who can beat them in a NBA playoff series.

As for Yao, I don't think Yao has the personality to eclipse Shaq in regards to overall accomplishments or domination. There is something passive about Yao's play that makes me believe that he will have a solid career and will be a consistant force but never the player that Shaq is. You have to be a little selfish and agressive in the NBA to be NUMBER 1 and I don't know if Yao has it in him to be that way.

1. Shaq O'neal
2. Wilt Chamberlain
3. Micheal Jordan
4. Bill Russell
5. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
6. Larry Bird
7. Earvin Johnson
8. Oscar Robertson
9. Tim Duncan

10. Bob Cousy
11. Bob Pettit
12. Jerry West
13. Elgin Baylor
14. Moses Malone
15. Julius Erving
16. Hakeem Olajuwon
17. Karl Malone
18. Kobe Bryant
19. George Mikan
20. David Robinson

21. Charles Barkley
22. Rick Barry
23. Dolph Schayes
24. John Havlicek
25. Isiah Thomas
etc...

This is kind of stupid. MJ is the best, so he is better than Shaq by a large margin.

I didn't create the list of best ever players, Elliott Kalk who is known as Mr. Stat did. His ranking is based on statistics and overall domination.

I think his list is pretty good.
