Wilt Chamberlain: Why Today’s Sky Would Be Predominated by the Big Dipper…

He dominated the league in a manner that no one else will ever be able to match his statistics, but he frequently goes unappreciated despite how much he deserves it.

When discussing who the best player of all time is, he is frequently pushed down the list by his critics who argue that he was a loser who could never lead his team to victory, dominated weak opponents, and put up numbers at the expense of his teammates. They also claim that if he had played in the NBA today, he wouldn’t have been as great.

I will primarily address the last claim in this essay, though I will also briefly address some of the others.

Let me be very clear about my mission statement before I start: I want to prove that Wilt Chamberlain was capable of playing at an All-Time level during any NBA era.

Let’s first examine Wilt’s career to see just how outstanding he was.

He led the league in both scoring and rebounding per game in his rookie campaign, averaging an incredible 37.6 points and 27 rebounds per contest. Aside from a number of other high-scoring games, Wilt’s most remarkable rookie season performances included a 41-40 game (in just his third game of the season), a 44-45 game, a 43-rebound game, a 44-42 game against Bill Russell, and a 58-42 game.
