    Chamberlain or Russell?

    Who do you prefer? Why? I'm still undecided, though I'm kind of leaning toward Russell, just because of championships.

    I won't vote for a Jayhawk!


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Wilt's the better player but never had the surrounding talent or coaching to win as much as Russell.

    I don't have stats at my fingertips, but I recall seeing them play against one another. If my memory serves me correctly, Bill Russell won most of those matchups along with his teams. If I had to take one of them in his prime, I would take Russell.

    Re: Chamberlain or Russell?

    Have to go with Russell. From what I've heard, he was the better team player. Hard to argue with all those championships.

    Re: Chamberlain or Russell?

    Even though Russell had 11 championships, it's hard to argue against a guy who averaged 50 points and 20+ rebounds in a season, and scored 100 in a game.

    Re: Chamberlain or Russell?

    At the same time, I've heard that if they kept track of blocks when Russell played, he easily could have averaged 6 or 7 a game, due to his impeccable timing and touch.

    I guess if you don't mind seeing another team win the championship so many times. I like Stan VanGundy's recent answer: "You pick first and I'll take the other guy and be happy". That being said, I'll take the guy that makes the team better and wins championships.

    What Russell mastered was the art of tipping the ball to himself. He almost always ended up with the ball after a block instead of swatting it 5 rows into the stands and giving it back to the other team.

    Re: Chamberlain or Russell?

    My father watched them both play. He liked Wilt better. He said Russell was a better ball player. So I have to go with my dad on this one since I was not around and he called it like he saw it.


    P.S. Wilt was better in the bedroom from what I hear.
