Rick Barry : to say Michael Jordan is better than Wilt or anyone is ludicrous

Rick Barry on Wilt Chamberlain: Nowhere to Run. There's infinite talk these days of players getting "killed" on the court, whether it be by posterization or crossover or whatever. Well, here you have Gus Johnson getting taken out on a freakin' stretcher because Wilt dunked the ball so hard it broke Johnson's foot on the way down. Think about that and let me reiterate - that's Gus Johnson. Measurements of Wilt's height and weight do not reflect how strong and athletic he was; he was perhaps a once-in-a-thousand-years physical specimen. The General Secretary of the Soviet Union Nikita Kruschev was dying to meet him when the Globetrotters visited Moscow in 1959. He won rookie of the year and league MVP in the same season, scoring 37.6ppg, more than MJ's career best. He averaged 50pts and 48.5 minutes a game for an entire season. The 4 highest points per game averages over a season belong to Wilt. Kobe had 6 games with 60pts or more; MJ had 5. Wilt had 32. MJ had 39 50pt games and Kobe had 25. Wilt had 45 50 point games in one season. Do you know he had 55rebs in 1 game against Bill Russell? He averaged 22.5rebs a game for his CAREER. He got fed up when he was being called out for not being a team player and then led the league in a*sists. Blocks weren't kept as a stat back then. Most of Wilt's playing career was either never filmed or no longer exists on film. That is especially the case for his early years, when he played for Philadelphia (and San Francisco for a season) and was scoring at a rate that will never be matched. The league crafted parts of the rule book around him, in an effort to limit his dominance. I've covered other aspects of Wilt's off-the-court life in other posts. ___ #wilt #thedipper #wiltchamberlain #philadelphia #sixers #76ers #warriors #LA #lakers #motown #60s #nba #basketball #basketbol #baloncesto

I don't even put wilt in goat talk because it aint fair to other humans.

I put kobr, mj, kareem, hakeem, magic, bird and them in a category, Wilt defies categorization

Ill tell yall a story I heard from an old cat who played against him.

I know we all have recency bias sonwe tend to only mention Kobe, Bron or Mike but truthfully if you're being objective Kareem, Wilt, or Russell should really be the only ones who can be considered for Goat status. Dominance(not just playing at a high level but actually dominating), accolades, stats them 3 got pretty much everyone besides Mike beat by a long shot.

7 footers dominate the nba...wilt Kareem hakeem Duncan shaq Kevin Durant Dirk...fans just prefer to celebrate guards more because they identify better with guards and guards are more entertaining...but 7 footer superstars are dynasty players more than superstar guards/forwards

Wilt to jordan “Just remember Michael. When you played, they changed the rules to make it easier for you to dominate. When I played, they changed the rules to make it harder for me”

Not even trolling but you realize in that era the same 8 teams played each other over and over and there were only two or three players that sz and most athletic were wilt and Russell so by default they only had comp playing each other ... look at rosters most the other teams centers were like 6-9 6-10 I’m only saying this because I took the time to look. It up once just to make sense of these amazing stats—it’s still amazing but it give you better context

Most old players don’t say MJ is the GOAT and I don’t blame them

Yea Wilt might have been the best player when it comes to individual stats but how many chips did he have compared to MJ?

If its GOAT talk then rings do count.

Wasn’t he like 7’1, 290, 45in vertical, huge wingspan?

In a “Alltime draft” Wilt would most likely be the #1 pick. Or kareem
