wilt made the nba look like a video game, too bad he couldnt get it done in the finals, in another universe he probably has 13 chips, the dude avgd 50 and 25 for a season and missed like 8 mins that year, thats INSANE, wilts undoubtedly the greatest scorer ever, and yea the arguments will come up that he played against "lesser competition", but he still did what he did, i think if he played today hed still be the greatest center ever,
and remember on his laker years he didnt score as much but he still had a season where he had 70% fg's , and thats just showin u he can do it if he wants to.
shaq used his size to his advantage but dont let that fool u, he was a skilled post player, he was just a smart guy who played to his strengths and what he had an advantage in, im not taking anything away from kareem, hakeem and bill russell
