    Didnt do anythingin HS - in fact got cut from the varsity

    Didnt do that much at North Carolina -main claim to fame was he made thegame-winning shot as a freshman in the title game.

    In the NBA -didnt win anythinguntil the early 90s. (then disrespected baseball)

    In contrast - Lew Alcindor won 3 titles at Power Memorial in NYC - won 3 titles at UCLA made John Wooden (and his freshman team defeated the UCLA varsity) made an impact in th NBA -led expansion Bucksto an NBA titlein 2nd season - won 5 more titles with the Lakers - retired as all-time NBA scoringchamp

    Who was better?
