HAKEEM OLAJUWON RUMORS

Hakeem Olajuwon isn’t bitter about that ’95 MVP award

Back in the fun and simpler times — by that I of course mean the 90’s — San Antonio Spurs center and Hall of Famer David Robinson won an NBA MVP award. The year was 1995 and the Rockets had won a championship the season before and many thought that Olajuwon was playing an MVP […]

Hakeem Olajuwon: Jordan 'far superior player' than LeBron

The debate over whether LeBron James is a better player than LeBron James will always exist, but for one of the greatest NBA players of all time, it’s not even a question.   Former Houston Rockets star Hakeem Olajuwon told CNBC on Thursday that it’s always been MJ, and it always will be. “When people start comparing (James) with Jordan, then that’s not a fair comparison...
