    Playoffs considered? Steph has no argument right now.

    There's also the consistently referenced selfishness. But I am leaning Wilt, even if slightly.
    But isn't a safe assumption that super efficient Wilt could have scored more but he just learned to play the best team basketball. That '67 season he learned he could score 25, set up his teammates, rebound, and defend and dominate the league. I don't think it was that he wasn't capable of scoring 40 anymore he just learned that he didn't have to every night and it helped his team be more successful. I find it hard to believe that a physical freak like Wilt Chamberlain who was could run like a deer, lift Arnold like a rag doll, and teams were still trying to sign at 50 was suddenly incapable of putting up big numbers anymore at 29.

    I'll concede that Orlando Shaq was fast and dynamic for his SIZE but you can't seriously compare him to a track star like Wilt Chamberlain.

    I'll co-sign Curry.

    Does anyone want to nominate any others for the poll?
    Throw 77 Walton and 82-83 Moses on there. League/Finals MVP combos deserve recognition. I can definitely see making a case for either of them top 10

    A trade off he was teaching the league. He was selfish tho, kind of like AI in that regard cuz it's not like his team couldn't have done as good without him hogging. Unlike AI, a team was never built around that, Wilt adapted more often

    Looking through the comments, JazzNC voted for Wilt so it is a tie 6-6 for Kareem and Wilt. I will post the next poll for #5

    Lol rookie Shaq didn't stay at 294 for long at all.
    By the time he left he was easily in the 330 range and only hit 380 the year he couldn't train, lost the weight thereafter.

    Point stands
