    Why is Oscar Robinson so underrated?

    I was looking up Oscar Robinsons stats, and he averaged a triple double for a season once and almost did it 2 other times. I understand basketball wasn't as competitive as it is now, but he still deserves more credit. Why doesn't he get enough credit as he should?

    pace and role maybe..

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I love the Big O but he's overrated. He literally wouldn't average those numbers in todays Nba.

    Titles he only won 1-2? If he would've won 4-5+ he would possibly be regarded as a top 5 player same reason why Karl Malone isn't regarded as the best pf and a top 10 player ever

    Love him or hate him, call him overrated, a punk, chump, and whatever blasphemy you people speak, fact of the matter is there is no denying he's the best of his generation and will go down as a top 5 player ever...what he has done for the NBA is amazing he's the biggest name in basketball all around the world and his chase for number 6 continues! All that matters though to us Laker fans is #17! Lakersnation! #16to17

    For sure he's overrated. You can argue Bill shouldn't even be in the top 10.

    Most players who played in 1960's and earlier don't get as much respect in general. I agree with the idea though.

    titles are overrated why attempting to rank individuals.

    Big O is one of only players from the 60s that I think would still maintain their greatness even in today's NBA. Wilt is also one of them. These guys weren't stiffs at all.

    Guys like Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, etc. Not so much. Bill Russell for example would just end up being a good defending PF. Otherwise, that's pretty much it.

    So to answer your question, yes Big O is underrated especially when people think Bill Russell>Big O when IMO, Bill Russell shouldn't even be regarded as a top ten player of all time.

    I think he'd still be really good, but I don't think he'd be as great as he is regarded now.

    I don't think he would be able to average a triple double today for sure . But the guy was ahead of his time in terms of athleticism, same thing with Wilt.

    While I don't believe he would maintain those same numbers, I think he would still be able to hold his own as one of the greats in today's league.
