so are we discounting Hakeem? He had mad pedigree
Seeing as Olajuwon was on his farewell tour/last legs, he shouldn't really get the same consideration as 'all-time best Raps defender.' If he'd been able to make an impact, then yeah, 100% he takes it –
he'll obviously go down as the immeasurably better player+defender in the history of the game.
But unfortunately for us, Hakeem will be remembered as a non-factor and a footnote with the Raps.
Ibaka on the other hand – while he's yet to play a game for us – has a real opportunity to earn that title in his time here.

(I knock on wood.)
