    What kind of number do you think your favorite player would have posted in the 60's?

    I know the inter-generational comparisons are impossible to quantify because things have changed so much,but if your favorite player played his prime seasons in the 60's, what kind of stats do you think he would have posted?

    And feel free to use players from other generations. If Hakeem or Jordan or Shaq are your favorites, go with them. If CP3 or KD or LBJ or Kobe is, go with them.

    Impossible to quantify? Not sure what you're trying to get at but while its not an exact science its not that hard to translate/compare numbers across eras. The 3pt line is probably the biggest hurdle tho.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

    Wade
    37pts per game... 5 steals.... 4 blocks... 8asst... etc


    Since medically science is not what it is now back then, Wade would have maybe 5 prime years. lol

    5 blocks a game is waaaay too much of a stretch for Blake, especially in the 60's

    Not sure what "especially in the 60's" is about. But lets look at it...

    They didn't record blocks then but people say Russell would have probably been around 6 a game in the early 60's.


    Figure in 1960 Blake would have been the 4th tallest player in the league instead of the 90th or so today.

    Now, his athleticism due to modern training would give him a HUGE edge.

    And we are taking out the 3 pt line, meaning a LOT more shots at the rim.

    And players weren't taking it up to draw fouls, or fouls just weren't called as much. Russell in the early 60's averaged just a bit over 2 while challenging everything. Wilt averaged 2 a game despite averaging 46 minutes a game in his career.. He fouled about half the rate of Blake today.

    His minutes would be up, he'd be out there 45 a game...


    I think he'd be used in a completely different way, where he would be a rim protector on D, playing against guys a lot shorter where his short wingspan would still be longer than just about anyone's.

    I could see 5 blocks a game. Not sure I would pick that, but in "realm of possibility" for an impossible circumstance... sure.

    It doesn't matter,if you played in the '60 you know that you have to go against Wilt in his prime. And with '60 rules he would just smash any player from the present!

    Excuse me, what are the major differences between 60s and the current generation, in addition to the existence of the three -point line ?

    I think he was overrated. Had Shaq, Dream or other excellent centers played at that time, he would have a less comfortable time for sure.

    Rough guess. I rounded down on the assists.

    Agreed, but the fg % is most delusional

    impossible to guess. They didn't even track blocks, credit for assists were done differently, etc. The pace alone would have made points/rebounds skyrocket, but still a tough question to really answer.

    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.
