Shaq vs Hakeem was pretty huge.  It was the crafty, but dominant veteran vs the up and coming superstar.  In many ways, just like Lebron and KD.  Shaq was 23, Hakeem was 32 (KD's 23, LJ's 27).  Shaq was the league's top scorer (just like KD), Hakeem was #2 (LeBron finished 3rd this year).  Hakeem had won the MVP the year before, and finished 5th in 1995.  Shaq finished 2nd in 1995.  And it was a big enough matchup to spawn this commercial:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnyWar8uOTI  And that commercial trumps anything KD and Lebron have going on.

I know their success isn't the most important thing, but it is nice (certainly helps to get more national exposure).  It's better than the old days when you used to get giddy as a schoolgirl because you saw Aso Pogi in the hallway.
