Shaquille O'Neal vs. Hakeem Olajuwon: Which Legendary NBA Center Was Greater?

A Title Fight between Shaquille O’Neal and Hakeem Olajuwon in their collective primes would have been an event for the ages—a match of mega proportions that could only be made in heaven. 

The raw energy created from a Shaq Attack versus the Dream at their best would equal the amount of energy released by a supernova exploding at it’s very climax—there simply were no other more dominant NBA big men in the last thirty years, at least. 

It would be a show that exhibited two very different but dominant styles: The Shaq Attack versus the Dream Shake. It is four rings versus two and 18 seasons versus 19. It’s the unrivaled brute strength of King Kong versus Godzilla with a brain. 

Both these centers dominated their tenures in the NCAA and were No. 1 picks in the NBA draft, where they each won multiple NBA championships.

But who was better?

Welcome everybody to another Bleacher Report debate. This time it’s Deputy Editor, Allen Kim and Shaquille O’Neal facing off against Featured Columnist, Rich Fernandes and Hakeem Olajuwon.
