    No.  When he started to do less he finally won a championship.

    Yeah, but cutz was probably referring to scoring with the ladies, right cutz? ;) No one beats Wilt there, not even Gene Simmons.

    I don't know as i'm not old enough to have seen Wilt. But, i know some scouts, one who played HS ball against Wilt, that are over 70 and have seen a lot of basketball and to a man they say Wilt was the best. He was not only 7' 1" but he was athletic too. Way ahead of his time. One told me that Wilt only holds so many  NBA records. Some that will never be broken.

    Not denying that he wasn't good because he was but you have to remember that he struggled against Russell and Jabbar.

    Also a good note is that the year Chamberlin averaged 50 pts a game Bill Russel won the MVP.  It's a fun debate to have because either side won't be wrong!!!

    Yes, it is a fund debate, like you said, either side is not wrong.

    Check this out, though:

    Regular Season 

    Player                  G W L GS MP FG FGA                          FG%   TRB               PTS
    Bill Russell           94 57 37 5.9 2.4 4.5                              .542        22.9            14.2
    Wilt Chamberlain 94 37 57 12.0 5.9 12.0                         .493          28.2            29.9

    Russell had more wins VS. Chamberlain, but i think we can agree, the Celtics had the better team most of those years? Averaging almost 30 pt.s and 28 Reb.s VS Russell is struggling?  

    Check out this website:   https://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/tiny.fcgi?id=PAGXr       that has the game-by-game breakdown of Wilt VS Russell. Some comical stats put up by both of those players. I laugh when i look at them. Check out the 1960 game 20, when Wilt had 53 & 29 and Russell had  22 & 32. CRAZY!! Also, take note how many minutes they played. They basically play the WHOLE game. Again: CRAZY!

    almost turned off the Jazz during the 0-19 run. If jingling joe would wake up, the jazz might win this thing. The post game presser was funny...donovan to favors: “you’re sweating, bro.”

    The Heat was going blow for blow with the Sixers until the 4th, then the wheels came off.

    Embiid struggled a little bit with that mask then he got used to it.  That guy cracks me up.

    C'mon Pacers! Up by 2 with 4 minutes to play. Could the Cavs be down 3-1?

    Currently the 76ers look like the team to beat inthe East. That could change quickly, but Simmons has been killing it in the postseason and is leading this team like a veteran player.

    That Clippers logo existed between 78 and 82 so it falls in there somewhere.

    1979 offseason. The Knicks last used that logo in the 78-79 season and the Jazz moved to Utah for 79-80.

    The team name of the Washington Bullets was the greatest name ever IMO.

    That name actually came from when the team was in Baltimore. It's a reference to the Phoenix Shot Tower, a National Landmark in Baltimore, for its role in producing shot balls.
