NBA's 72 "Greatest" Moments: Hakeem Olajuwon Deconstructs Patrick Ewing
This qualifies as one of the 72 “Greatest” Moments in NBA History
When the NBA and its media apparatus discuss the 1990s, it’s Michael Jordan this, Chicago Bulls that; heartbreaks here, heartbreaks there. Like MJ was the king of the world ruining everyone’s lives.
Well, I’m here to remind y’all that some of us in the ‘90s weren’t tortured by Jordan and the Bulls. Sure, some y’all living in Cleveland or Seattle or Utah or Phoenix or New York got the business from Jordan. But I don’t care.
I grew up a Rockets fan and got mine. Twice, baby.
Yes, some of us were blessed to root for Hakeem Olajuwon and the Houston Rockets. We didn’t get six titles, but we got two. And the fist one came at the expense of Utah, Phoenix, and New York. None of whom could take advantage of Jordan’s absence to get their coveted title because they had so-called superstars unable to match the glory of Hakeem.
