Hakeem Olajuwon vs. Shaquille O'Neal - Jerome Solomon says it all

New, comments

I was thinking about writing something on this, as Shaq's loquaciousness has made some believe that he was the better player than Hakeem was.  That's absolutely absurd in my opinion and apparently in Jerome Solomon's as well. 

Here is where Shaq is so much less a basketball player than Olajuwon, that we should never talk about it again.

Shaq was swept out of the playoffs six times. SIX times. Swept. And three other times his team won just one game in a series.

I know some around here don't like Mr. Solomon.  I, for one, think he and Feigan are the two best writers at the Houston Chronicle.  I don't have to agree with everything the man says.  He says it with gusto and actually backs up his words.  Yes, sometimes it is with opinion, but that's the only thing you have in a lot of cases.  If I couldn't write or talk without opinion backing up my points this blog wouldn't exist.
