The battles between Hakeem and Shaq were great for the game during a time when the league desperately needed help after MJ went to Birmingham. Shaq did his thing for Reebok and became one of the first big men to really be able to push a shoe to mainstream consumers. Hakeem's move with Spalding helped kids who couldn't drop a hundred dollars wear something that would last and still looked pretty good on foot.
