The Admiral and The Dream held in down in Texas as two of the greatest centers to ever play the game. Somewhat evenly matched on the court, Robinson held a tremendous advantage when it came to kicks — his Nikes easily eclipsed Olajuwon's assortment of L.A. Gears and Spaldings. That said, he who had the best sneakers didn't always win — a valuable lesson for anyone.
