There have been many dominant big men in the NBA. From David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Patrick Ewing, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kareem Abdul Jabbar but none have ever had the low-post moves like Hakeem Olajuwon.
"Dream" used to be a nightmare for any would-be defender who dared tried to stop him. His foot-work was superb, agility was out of this world, quickness for a center was phenomenal for a big man during his time and his "Dream Shake" was close to unstoppable.
But that was then, this is now.
Nowadays, centers in the NBA do not have a low-post game with many relying on their face-up game, and athleticism to get to the rim. However, that all may change with Amar'e Stoudemire and JaVale McGee turning to "Dream" himself for some offseason workouts to improve their game.
Check out the video of the trio hitting the court and I got to say, Hakeem looks like he still has it and could probably still obliterate many big men currently in the NBA.
