    I'd take Shaq, no question.
    Every disappointment is a blessing in disguise....

    Causes and effects are not real, but are habits of our mind to make sense of the observation that A often occurs together with or slightly before B. All we can observe are correlations, not causations; from which we make inductive inferences.

    Pippen easy...dude was like 9 or 10 time all defense.

    As for the thread...Hakeem easy...he made shaq look like a str8 bitch in the finals...with Penny in his prime...

    Imagine Hakeem gets drafted that year to Magic instead of shaq and vice versa...he prolly woulda won with Penny, then say he went to La. Him and Kobe would have won many championships...with no ego clashing, no free throw issues...less foul trouble issues...

    Close thread.
    Go watch some old school Portland Blazers of Clyde in action and get back to me with your answer....ppl put Pippen on a pedestal cause he played with MJ.

    Yep in 92' Clyde was thee shit. If I can remember, I think the NBA announcers said he was the best guard that year. Thats until he ran across Michael Jordan in the playoffs

    I don't need to and watch some old school blazers...cuz I watched it when old school was actually happening. Clyde was clearly a better scorer...but I'll take pippen over him...better rebounder, shot blocker...stealer and overall defender. And his ppg was only a lil bit less than clydes. I ain't putting pippen on a pedestal cuz I hate the fuckin bulls and aside from his shoes I could give a fuck about MJ. My soul was warm when my lakers destroyed his dreams of winning a chip without Jordan.

    what the hell are you talkin about?....the zone isn't really meant to stop the post game.....more so penetration.....

    It allows players to defend spots instead of going man to man, no one player could guard Shaq one on one and if players were to cheat over like they do now they would get called for illegal defense. By allowing zone defense you can now guard spots instead of waiting until Shaq had the ball and made a move to go and double. If there was no zoning areas Shaq would easily outmuscle who ever was defending him to get deep position and just catch and dunk. This is also why they added the three second rule.

    Its true it is used to stop penetration but this is a guards league, I doubt they would want to change that.

    2000-2003 Shaq was a different kind of animal I dont think the Dream even it he was a few years younger would be able to change that.

    3 second rule was made to keep UK from setting rough picks in the lane back in the 1930s, when the paint was 6 feet wide
