Dad Killer was afraid of Hakeem Olajuwon.

Be serious, Simon.

Hakeem wasn't even on Jordan's radar.

Hakeem had 6 other years to meet him in the finals.

As you can see, Hakeem is the one flinching from MJ's power:

Nope MJ legit feared Hakeem and had a losing record against him (1-5 from 91-93)

I always laugh at this because that would mean MJ was psychic and could see the future. Because you see, when MJ retired after 1992-93, Hakeem was ringless, viewed as somewhat of black hole that couldn't make his teammates better. There was no aura surrounding him that he enjoys now.

So ok, that makes MJ even more GOAT. He saw what Hakeem would become and avoided him like the plaque. Thanks wheels.

We know MJ is goat because only MJ showed us that 8-straight was possible in the modern era - and that's amazing because everyone thought Russell's 8 straight was some kind of untouchable, old world feat...

MJ let us know that 8 straight is still humanly POSSIBLE, and for that, he is GOAT

Jordan was burnt out after 93, but they are going to win eight in a row?

The guy averages 41 and you say he's "burnt out"

That's crazy

You know who was burnt out and didn't have enough physically and mentally to 3-peat?

Kobe, Lebron, Durant, and Curry



Heck Lebron averaged a pathetic 17 shots in the 14' Finals (mj averaged 34 attempts in 93')
