Jabbar? Got the longevity, but piled up stats against garbage competition for the most part. Did not like to mix it up inside with the tough guys. Moses owned Jabbar lock stock and barrel. Jabbar didn't get steals, handle the ball or pass well until later in his career.
Russell? Played on the best teams year in and out, played for the best Coach and GM, his heart and will can't be questioned, but his offense isn't even college D2 quality these days. His offense also went down the drain when the real big guys showed up. His D rebounding was overstated by todays standards because of the poor shooting percentages and his teammates would abandon the glass at a shot and let Bill deal with it. A unique player of HIS time. All the others named above would be starting Centers today. Bill would be a back-up no shoot 4 of far less impact. How can he be best?
