    in his career.

    3 titles at UCLA.

    A sweep of the Baltimore Bulits in his 2nd NBA season.

    Looked bored/non-chalant.

    That's why he is not that popular.

    Stil the one player I would pick if I had to play a game to 100 for my life.

    I'd pick Wilt Chamberlain, the only man to score a 100 points in one game.

    Wilt did something else no one has ever done...I can't believe I found this...I only reason I knew about it, because I saw him do it live...but when I tell people it really happened, they don't believe me. They say it's never happened! Well folks, it did happen and here's the proof!

    Alcindor scored 51points on Wiltwith his patented sky-hook.

    The 2 only played againsteach other for 2 or 3 seasons or so.

    Kareem owned him.

    It was 2 seasons. Wilt injured his knee, Alcindor's rookie year. Maybe that's why the Bucks won the title?

    The next year, Wilt and the Lakers won the title. But Kareem did have one good thing that year, the Bucks were the ones who stopped the Lakers 33 game win streak.

    Kareem didn't own Wilt. Wilt blocked Kareem's best shot (twice). Kareem never blocked Wilt's slam dunk. But then, no one could.

    BTW, do you know how many times Wilt scored 51 points in a game?

    Kareem vs Wilt was a good rivalry -but a short one.

    Both of them had their hands full of the Knicks and the Celtics I recall.
