Elgin Bayler the man. :)

From fans who watched him play, I've been told he did things and had many more moves that have not been captured on film (makes sense, 97% of his career does not exist on film). Like dribbling between the legs, and changing hands with the ball in mid-air before a dunk (he apparently did this to Wilt Chamberlain), and throwing the ball off the glass fetching it to toss it back in when trapped by defenders (as explained by Gail Goodrich and Darrall Imhoff in the video). I'd imagine a career highlight video of his would look as good, and varied in offensive moves as anyone's.

Oh yes,great video. Keep the excellent work.

Baylor was truly underrated,man he had PF stats and he was 6 foot 5.

27.4 ppg
13.5 rpg
4.6 apg
431 fg%
40 mpg for freakin 14 years.

These are monster stats. Hands down,he's a lock top 10-15 players of all time.

I think part of the reason he's not ranked high is because some thought he held the Lakers back due to his shot selection. He took a LOt of shot. He was a trigger happy player, and he was about circus shots a lot of the time. West said he was amazing and could change things mid-air, which made him hard to guard, but at the same time, he missed a lot of those shots and at the end of the day, when you took him off that Lakers roster, they one the first time around without having an All-Star caliber player to replace him

That says something. I love the guy. I got him ranked 6th at SF (behind Bird, LBJ, Durant, Dr. J, and Pippen). His per game averages are slightly inflated due to the fact taht he played 40 minutes a game, but taht in and of itself is impressive.

Amazing rebounder for his size too... just incredible. But I think he generally gets ranked around where he should get ranked.
