Since you are copping out by bring up names from the dark ages as oppose to his peers, I'm going to let the numbers speak for themselves. It ain't like Hakeem and Elmo never faced each other, same with Cheese-Eyes. As long as they played in the games and were in that stat sheet, it counts:

Elmo NEVER lost to Hakeem 10-0: http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/h2h_finder.cgi?request=1&p1=duncati01&p2=olajuha01

Cheese-Eyes couldn't throw a rock in the ocean against the twin towers: http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/h2h_finder.cgi?request=1&p1=duncati01&p2=jordami01

I don't think there is a need for references against Shaq but just so you understand: http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/h2h_finder.cgi?request=1&p1=duncati01&p2=onealsh01#stats_playoffs

With that said, Elmo is the only player out of all you listed that has won chips throughout his career starting from day 1 while the rest had growing pains followed by the proverbial peak and then fell off the face of the earth. May I add, Elmo has also been a better teammate and leader throughout his career than Shaq could ever wish to be.
