Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain name their top 6 without naming each other.


Their lists

Wilt: Larry Bird, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor, Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.

Bill: Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Elgin Baylor, Oscar Roberston, Hakeem Olajuwon or Bob Petit.

Starts at @ 6:35



Notice how neither one of them named Kareem. I've never had him in my top 5 either, so it felt good to have 2 of the best players ever agree with me on that.

But anyways, what's y'alls take on their top 6?

Who cares? Lebron wasn't playing then. They probably put him in some sort of echelon. Personally I got bron in my top ten. But I feel like when the chips fall hell be regarded as one of the goats even to the skeptics like me

It’s crazy that they both left Kareem off.

No it's not. Hakeem led a team to back to back championships. Something that Kareem never did.

I would've enjoyed seeing Wilt & Bill in an interview in 2008 speaking on the rule changes, marketing & salary cap, Lakers 3peat(i know they would've immediately brought up Shaq's lack of competition at C), 22 yr old Lebron carry the Cavs to the finals, kobe scoring 35+ & 81 in a game(would've loved Wilt's perspective)Yao ming, Ben Wallace, KG & Tim Duncan

The articulation, intelligence & knowledge of the intricacies within the game that they possessed is something i would've enjoyed immensely...Julius & a few others left over from the 60s-70s era are the last ones left with that type perspective.

Our Petty Gods. Neither mentioned Kareem either. They ain't giving none of their direct competition any shine. Gotta love the old school mentality.

Wilt would’ve been great in any era.

Bill Russell only in his era.



Playing defense, rebounding, and consistent goaltending comes a dime a dozen. Elite offense does not.

Goaltending was made because of Bill Russell and he’s the player they retire a jersey on every team

Not really

Hakeem is the GOAT defensive player of all time

Most blocks in nba history while averaging almost 2 steals a game

That's not even bringing up his offensive repertoire and other accomplishments

These two were legendary haters that's why they both left Kareem and each other off their lists

The pettiness was top-tier in that era

I agree with all of this but Hakeem was not better than Kareem. It's not crazy to have Hakeem in your top 6 but Kareem has to be in there. People in here saying Kareem just played a long time like the man didn't win SIX MVPs!

Shocked Bill didn’t name Kareem but it was well known that Wilt was jealous of Kareem.

Either way Kareem is top 3 at least, you could make a strong argument that Kareem was the greatest HS player, college player and NBA player. Not too many guys you could do that for on a 3 levels

I only count the NBA.

And similar to me, I think Bill and Wilt view those 80s Laker championship teams as teams that were mostly led by Magic, which could make a huge difference between those that rank Kareem in their top 5 vs those that don't.

I only count the NBA as well I was just saying you could make that argument for Kareem bout HS and college

Even if you believe Magic was the leader of those 80s Lakers team your acting like he wasn’t busting Wilt’s a*s before that or that he didn't win 6 mvps to bills 5 and wilts 4. And Kareem was the finals MVP in 85 when they ran it back against the Celtics and they played through him.
