    SCORE AT WILL.

    UNSTOPPABLE SKY HOOK.

    3 straight titles at UCLA.......been 4 if freshmen were elibable

    Was expected to win 3 titles at UCLA - then did it

    Then led expansion Milwaukee Buks to a title in a sweep over the Baltimore Bullits and Wes Unsold. 4 zip Most one-sided finals in NBA history.

    Recall a pic of Kareem dunking over Unsold reverse.

    Oscar Robertson was the best NBA player of all time. Over his entire career he averaged a triple double before they even knew what that was!

    Plus he never fouled out of a game.

    Wilt dominated more. They had to change the rules to stop him

    My favorite Alcindor story was when he was a freshman and the Freshman team played the Varsity team in an exhibition to open the Pauly Pavilion The freshmen crushed them and the Varsity went on to win the NCAA tournament

    Wasn't even the best player on his team: Magic Johnson
    Not even best Laker: Kobe Bryant (yep Kobe has surpassed Magic)
    Not even 1st or 2nd best Lakers' Center: Wilt and Shaq were better
    And Definitely not better than the best ever: MICHAEL JORDAN!!!

    The Big O was undoubabtly a great player - one of the best of all time.

    Labored for years with the Cincinnati Royals.

    Got traded to Milwaukee in the twilight of his career.

    He needed Kareem more than Kareem needed him..................
