i'll put Olajuwan over D-Rob... he and MJ dominated the 90s... Rob was good... the Dream was just better... we saw how easily someone (Tim Duncan) can over-power him in such short time...

the decision to start robinson over olajuwon was the second closest call for this team (behind the decision to name barkley instead of kemp).

what got robinson the start was:

- robinson was the best player in the nba in 5 out of 10 seasons, compared with 2 seasons for olajuwon

- olajuwon struggled to make the playoffs some years, including 1990, and 1998, and missed the playoffs completely in 1992. robinson did not struggle any year.

- olajuwon had superior teammates, including drexler, barkley, and pippen

- robinson led his team to the single biggest one season turnaround in the history of the nba in 1990

- when robinson was injured for all but 6 games in 1997, the spurs became one of the worst teams in the history of the nba

robinson is a worthy starter at center

-Those are all valid points but I think Olajuwon making Roninson his son in the 95 playoffs should get him the spot.

-Haleem missed som games the season they missed the playoffs, had he played those games the'd be in the 92 playoffs. Also D-Rob missed in 96 (though he only played what 6 games and it wasn't his fault)

-Olajuwon has 2 NBA titles and 2 Finals MVP's compared to Robinsons one title and 0 Finals MVP's in the 90's.

yeh..that really isn't comparable. spurs miss the playoffs when robinson plays 6 games, hakeem played 70 games when the rockets missed the playoffs

yep. this is what made it a close decision.

it was close between olajuwon and robinson, so i can understand some might get that wrong, you included. but barkley over malone? malone over barkley was probably the easiest decision, i have no idea how you could even contemplate justifying that

I guess Malone had a longer prime but I thought Barkley's prime was better.

Why Reggie Miller should be a part of this team.

- Miller was a member of the gold medal-winning Olympic men's basketball team in 1996 and of the US national team for the 1994 FIBA World Championship.

- Best 3 pts. Shooter of all time

- 3 time ALL NBA 1st team

- 5-Time NBA All-Star

- Miller played more games with the same team than all but two players in NBA history, John Stockton and Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz. Over the course of his career, Miller scored 25,279 points, with an average of 18.2 points per game. He shot .471 from the field, .395 from 3-point range and .888 from the free throw line.

- Miller is the all-time NBA leader in total 3-point field goal made (2,560) and ranks at 13th place in total points (25,279)[1], 7th in free throw percentage (88.8%), 6th in minutes played (47,619) and 7th in games played (1,323).[1] He is also all-time NBA leader in total three-point field goals made in the playoffs (320).

-Reggie Miller is one of only five members of the 50-40-90 club along with Larry Bird, Mark Price, Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki. This club is for players who during the course of a season shot 50% or better from the field, 40% or better from three-point range, and 90% or better from the free throw line.

- Reggie Miller and his Indiana Pacers are one of the best team in the 1990's that surely fair very well againts the Chicago Bulls. Indiana became a perennial contender in the Eastern Conference by virtue of the leadership skills of Reggie Miller

- Reggie Miller led many countless memorable clutch perfomance in the 1990's NBA playoffs against the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls.

- Reggie Miller is the best basketball shooter of all time and we cannot denied the fact that he is one of the best player in the 1990's.

“Along with Michael Jordan, I believe he’s the greatest clutch player we have ever seen. He is a true professional with unbelievable heart, desire and dedication. He’s a great friend, he was a great teammate and true blessing, not just to Indiana basketball, but to basketball throughout the world.”

-- Mark Jackson

Malone was more skilled while Barkley relied on heart and a "Never say die" attitude. Barkley was without a doubt the more aggressive of the two. I'd take Malone since he was more durable and had a longer prime. Not to take anything away from Barkley, who has an MVP and robbed of a second.

Drexler is a 80's player I'll replace him with Anfernnee Hardaway. Even though he wasn't good for a long time (due to injury=knee ) but who can forget his tremondous passes and acrobatic slam dunks.
