    One of the most dominate to play the game.

    In before, someone talk about Olajuwon schooling him early in his career.

    I won't post career stats because they took such a hit after bouncing around Cleveland, Boston and Phoenix.


    But at his best, he was a 29.7ppg, 3bpg, 13rpg player. AND he played in the best Era of Centers (Hakeem the Dream, David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, Vlade Divac)

    Top 2 center. Top 7-8 player.

    Center-wise, only Kareem I'd say was better.

    Player-wise: Kareem, Mike, Magic, Bird, Big O, Duncan, and Kobe top him....and Kobe and Shaq are VERY debatable.

    I wouldn't put Duncan or Kobe above Shaq.

    Duncan has only averaged more than 23ppg ONCE in his career. His blocks and rebounds are roughly the same, or less than Shaqs. Shaq scored a lot more than Duncan.

    Kobe had one insane year where he averaged 35ppg. Other than that, his best years don't look a whole lot different than guys like McGrady and Iversons best years.

    Most dominating player to EVER play the game. The league had to change the rules (aka flopping) just to stop him from completely taking over the game.

    He's DEFINITELY top 5 to do it.

    Kareem Wilt and Hakeem are better than Shaq... Hakeem was the all time block leader as well... He chopped Shaq up in the Finals... Best center Ive seen with my eyes

    He's the top 5 center probably the fourth best center of all time

    Kareem
    Wilt
    Hakeem
    Shaq

    In that order in my opinion. I use to watch Hakeem regularly abuse guys like Shaq, David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, etc. Next to Jordan, Hakeem is probably the second best player I've witnessed play in real time.

    He's top 10 if the NBA were to shut down today.

    He wont be top 10 after everyone currently playing is done with their careers.
