Ok I'm driving so not going to go into a long rant but you obviously didn't look at what I posted. Every link is not a career vs stat, or a year by year but a purely heads up comparison. In other words it's a list of how Hakeem and Kareem did only against each other, therefore the numbers and the win loss is very relevant. If it was just yearly stats, or career numbers then you make a valid point but these are how they did soley against each other.

I haven't seen it mentioned yet, but I would say a HUGE reason why Shaq is consistently ranked higher than Hakeem is due to the markets each played in. Houston is a much smaller market compared to an LA or NYC/Chicago. Plus Shaq was always great with branding him self. Combine that with the fact that he played in LA/Hollywood and I think that is a large reason why he overshadows Hakeem.
