    So much for the myth that yesterdays athletes couldnt compete with modern players.

    He could score AT WILL.

    7'2 maybe taller.............

    May sould like hersey - but Alcindor made John Wooden

    Wooden won titles at UCLA with a couple of short teams -then Alcindor came along and cememted the UCLA dynasty.

    UCLA won a couple of more titles after Alcider with out a center - (but players like Sidney Wicks - then Walton came along.

    Kareem didn't work hard enough on defense.
    and lots of times, he didn't even run down court. And he didn't really try... except during the playoffs.

    When you are 7'3" - you can get away with stuff.

    Suceeded at all 3 levels - HS, college, pro

    Even he joked in Airplane that he was lazy at times on defense.

    With the lack of big men in the NBA today Kareem would dominate.

    Recall how Kareem abused 6' 7" Wes Unsold of the Balitimore Bullets in the 1971 finals 4-0 sweep - one of the most lop-sided finals in NBA history.

    Alcinder was widely expextedto win 3 NCAA titltes at UCLA - and made good on it.

    For good measure - WHUPPED the defending NC UCLA Varisty when he was a freshman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
