If the Dallas Mavericks could pair Luka Doncic with one Hall-of-Famer, one All-Star, and two role players, what would the dream lineup look like?

C: Hakeem Olajuwon

Just imagine the pick-n-roll Luka Doncic could run with Hakeem Olajuwon. It may be the most dominant offensive set in the history of basketball.

What is there to say about Olajuwon? He’s arguably the best defensive player to ever step foot in the NBA, and, at his peak, he averaged 27.8 points per game.

Olajuwon led the Houston Rockets to two championships in the 1990s, and if it weren’t for Michael Jordan, there’s a chance he would have been able to win more.

With Doncic as the lead man, adding defense should be a top priority, and there isn’t a better person to anchor this dream Dallas Mavericks defense than Olajuwon.

His post game would be a perfect complement to Doncic, and his height and athleticism would give the Mavericks point guard yet another elite lob threat.

The frontcourt of Serge Ibaka and Olajuwon would terrorize opposing offenses while giving Doncic two players 6-foot-10 and taller to throw lobs to on the offensive end.

Olajuwon is a three-time NBA block champion, a two-time NBA rebounding champion, a nine-time All-Defensive guy, and a two-time Defensive Player of the Year.

His accolades speak for themselves, and pairing him with Doncic would be incredible.
