I still remember the showdown that Iverson and Rose had in AI's final NBA game.  Was fun to watch seeing Rose and Iverson showing each glimpses of what made/makes them special

 

 


I still have a hard time believing that no team in the NBA had any use for Iverson or didn't need a player like Iverson.  He shouldn't have finished his career overseas.

Team Jordan, and this is largely due to as one poster said, one team having a liability on the defensive end. Swap him with Payton and team Kobe probably wins.

^Dang that's tough. It's funny how everyone is always comparing Kobe and Jordan, but we rarely hear of the Hakeem vs Shaq debate. Hakeem obviously never played with anyone of Jordan's caliber, but I still don't think he can guard a prime Shaq.

 

Kobe and Shaq over any duo until proven otherwise

Homerism aside I don't think there is a definitive answer, one on one I would take Hakeem over Shaq. But that contrast of Kobe and MJ makes it more compelling, Kobe being more offensively polished than MJ especially at perimeter, still MJ's defense would be amazing. I'll go with Hakeem and MJ over Shaq and Kobe, Hakeem was a better defender all across and more mobile, while Shaq offensively as a monster it isn't like he would bully a prime Hakeem like we got used to seeing in the 00's. Plus Shaq was more of a swatter, from what I've seen Hakeem was very old school in his blocking and defensive approach, deflect it to the open man not knock it out of the court which would benefit MJ.
