Default Hakeem = ultimate opportunist

Lettuce bee real. If MJ never retired then Hakeem would have no rings and would be lower than Karl Malone on the GOAT list.

If Kobe didn't have shaq he wouldn't have won 3 rings

If refs didn't help lakers in 2002 Kobe wouldn't have won a ring in 2002

if Yao ming and KG didn't get injured Kobe wouldn't have won a ring in 2009

If perkins didn't get injured Kobe wouldn't have won a ring in 2010

Kobe should has 0 rings.

I think he and the Rockets would have still won a title in 1995.

1994 - Bulls with MJ, Pip and Grant - no way. Knicks took Houston to 7 games.
1995 - Bulls with just MJ and Pip....Shaq and Orlando may have still gotten to the Finals.

Either way, I think 1995 Rockets win that year.

Kobe is good looking so he would still be the GOAT in my heart.

i dont get why people say this when Jordan played in the playoffs in 1995 and lost to orlando in the playoffs. rockets swept orlando in the finals.

jordan averaged 31ppg, 6.5 rpg, 4.5 apg, on 48% fg during the 1995 playoffs.

in fact you can say jordan got lucky that shaq & penny broke up.

LOL. Don't be jealous of Kobe's good looks. Kobe's good looks lowers your self esteem and makes you feel insecure about your self.

I would've loved for them to face each other. Hakeem might've ended MJ.

More like Scottie Pippen. Dude would never sniff the HOF without Jordan. 16/6/5 does not get you into the Hall without 6 rings that he got from playing with Jordan.

If youre going to use a photo of Kobe, you could post one that isnt airbrushed.

Anyone who tries to diminish the player Hakeem was for the back to back titles(as well as the '93 season) is simply ignorant to the level he played at during that time which is well beyond the level Malone was at.

OP is clearly a troll, though. It's obvious that no attempt was made at a serious discussion with this thread.

Right, because those numbers take into account his defense. Besides, who cares about career averages which are brought down by his last few years when he was in his mid to late 30s with numerous injuries as well as his early career which included a rookie season he didn't start in.

From '91-'98, Pippen was a 20/7/6/2/1 player, and those are HOF numbers, especially when you factor in his all-time great defense. Not to mention his intelligence, ability to handle the ball and run the offense or lead the break at 6'8" as well as being one of the best open court players due to his length and ability to finish, one of the best rebounding small forwards, a solid shooter from 18-20 feet and eventually 3 point range as his career went on, and an effective post game later on as well.

Out of Pippen's contemporaries(players who had some of their better years in the 90s) who made the HOF, he was better than Reggie Miller, Dennis Rodman, Joe Dumars, Chris Mullin, John Stockton and I'd certainly put him on par with Drexler and Payton at the very least.

Hakeem beat Malone (along with his HOF teammate) two years in a row with role players. Hakeem won two titles without an all star teammate.

Hakeem has arguably the highest impact of any player to step on to a basketball court. The man is known as the one with the greatest low post players -more so silky the effective you could argue- and leads the league in blocks.

Not to diminish Hakeem in any way but he only won one title without an all-star teammate. In '95 he had Drexler.
