    I love Hakeem. And, growing up, liked Andres Gallaraga from the Rockies...for some odd reason.

    Hakeem for me too..stood next to him at a baseball card show back in the mid 90s, came up to his shoulder, felt like a midget. And I'm 6'2

    That's a tough one to beat, the best ever. The only other player i idolized more in the NBA in that era was Karl Malone, so you can probably imagine how frustrated MJ made me lol.

    Michael Jordan is to Ewing, Malone, etc what Michael Jackson was to Lionel Richie.

    Both Michaels made it impossible for those dudes to get theirs.

    Hakeem was lucky that MJ stepped out for two years.... who knows.... Bulls could have 8 straight. We'll never know.

    Yes! I watched the last few years of his career, that's all I saw. I've watched videos of him on YouTube because I have collection of his cards because he was my Grandmas favorite player and she would buy me a few a week He was amazing, even not seeing him pitch live much.
