    Still think nobody dominated like Wilt

    Kareem was the most dominate player of his era and won at whatever level he played. Power Memorial, UCLA, Bucks, Lakers

    This is why he had such success with the sky hook.

    other automatics

    Dirk N's and Rick Barry's foul shots both missed once or twice winning an NBA title
    Barry's was so good in the finals against Washington DC was up one point and Barry was fouled as time ran out. THe Bullets went to the locker room, they knew the game was over

    Wilt Chamberlain was unstoppable.

    1961–62 NBA season averaged 50.4 points and grabbed 25.7 rebounds per game.
    March 2, 1962, scored 100 points, -v- New York Knicks.

    The point being that when a young boxer beats up an aging fighter, it does not mean he was better

    I think Kareem was the second most dominating basketball player after Wilt. Both dominated their position and both had more impact than Jordan

    Center was a different position back then. Everything went through the center both on offense and defense
