The best way to whet our collective appetites for the upcoming NBA season would be to watch highlight reels of NBA greats. And when we’re talking greats, why not look to Hakeem Olajuwon, the former player who took the art of being a big man to new heights and is still schooling the current few centers remaining in the league.
Post moves will never look cooler than when The Dream had his back to the basket. The head fakes, the phantom scoops, the fade-aways – all things that we’ve tried to replicate in our back yard or at the gym, to limited avail. We might see another Michael Jordan before we see another Olajuwon as guard play dominates and center go the way of the dinosaur.
