    He needs a 99 overall Lakers card from 2000. The most dominant player of all time...

    Please like seriously. He was the best modern center of the era. He need at least a 96-98. I wouldn't complain with a 99 though. Make it happen 2K.

    2000 Shaq stats (PPG/RPG/APG):
    - regular season: 30/14/4 on 57%FG
    - playoffs: 31/15/3 on 57%FG
    - finals: 38/17/2 on 61%FG

    Insane!

    4

    You're right that Shaq is a top 5 Big Man of all time & maybe the most dominant force in the paint ever.
    But the Finals stats are not insane. It was Shaq in his prime vs. Rik Smits in his retirement year.

    1964 Wilt STATS (PPG/RPG/APG)

    That's one season lmao. What about the other seasons?
    BTW He averaged 29 PPG in the finals that year, 7 less than in the regular season.

    29 PPG against the greatest post defender of all time.

    0

    Lemme rephrase that. Greatest defender of all time.
    I wanna see Shaq try and drop 20 on Bill Russel.

    3

    7'1" 325 lbs Shaq against 6'10" 220 lbs Russell? I'm pretty sure he would score more than 20 lmao.
    BTW Hakeem is the greatest defender of all time (not Russell lol) and young Shaq played well against him in the 1995 finals.

    2

    Finally someone who understands. There is absolutely no way anybody, let alone from the 60s era, stands up Shaq.

    1

    Wilt is better in EVERY category. Wilt has god like athletics. Wilt is:
    Stronger than Shaq.
    Has a vertical higher than MJ
    Faster than Lebron.
    Post moves like Hakeem.

    2

    He might have been faster in his track days but not while he was playing. He bulked up to play in the NBA.

    1

    Not faster than lebron, but fast.He didn't have as good post moves as Hakeem tho. He was great in the post but no one compares to Hakeem.

    "4.4 Wilt Chamberlain hand timed at a weight of 240lbs. This is according to Wilt, while at KU. Take with a grain of Salt.
    4.6 LeBron James hand timed at a weight of 260lbs a few off seasons ago."

    0

    Even if he did run a time of 4.4 he came into the league at 250 and quickly bulked up to 215. With the Lakers he weighed over 300 pounds. He certainly lost speed. Also, he was stronger than Shaq at one time, faster than Lebron at one time, etc. but not at the same time. Your comment made it seem like you were saying that he was all of these at the same time.

    0

    Also, how do you bulk up to 215? Wouldn't that mean he would be faster?

    0

    Sorry, I meant to type 275. Also, he wasn't able to lift more than Shaq until his final years. He surely was not faster than Lebron at this point in time.

    He was always stronger than Shaq. When he was on his last years he could lift 500 because he continued trying to be as healthy as possible. He started playing volleyball and had some training programs.

    Shaq in the NBA finals:
    - vs DPOY Mutombo - 33 PPG, 16 RPG, 57%FG
    - vs the GOAT defender Hakeem - 28 PPG, 13 RPG, 60%FG (Shaq was 22, Hakeem was in his prime)
    - vs DPOY Ben Wallace - 27 PPG, 11 RPG, 63%FG

    And this guy is saying that he would get locked up by 220 lbs Bill Russell LMFAO

    0

    Bill Russel is the defending G.O.A.T.
    Once in college, he got a triple-double-triple in college. With points blocks and rebounds.
    He got 20 points, 20 blocks, 20 rebounds.
    Wilt got 55 rebounds on the defending G.O.A.T on the regular season. But in the playoffs, Wilt once got 41 rebounds on him. Wilt or Bill are the defending G.O.A.T.
    You clearly do not know enough about Wilt if you don't know about his physical aspects, don't argue against someone you don't even know.

    0

    "don't argue against someone you don't even know".
    I meant don't say someone is better than someone if you've never even seen them play.

    1

    Bill Russel had more they didn't count blocks in the NBA. But in NCAA. He once got a double-triple-double.
    20 points
    20 rebounds
    20 Blocks
    I'm sorry, did I say once?
    I ment alot. Hakeem is easily one of the most overrated players. If MJ didn't choke in the playoffs and went to play baseball, Hakeem would have no rings.

    Lol it's easy to get those numbers in a super fast paced era against weak competiton. Please watch a few games from the 60s...

    0

    This comment takes the biscuit as you clearly do not have enough knowledge about the pre-70s era of basketball.
    The highest PPG from a team was from the Denver Nuggets in 1981.
    Not from a team in the 60s.
    "Fast paced era" in my sleep.

    0

    It was a fast paced era though...
    The Philadelphia Warriors of '62 (Wilt's 50ppg season) had a pace of 131.1. (131 possesions every 48mins)
    The Nuggets team you talked about only had a pace of 109.8.
    Here are some more teams that were considered as great run and gun offenses.
    '87 Lakers- 101.6 pace
    '05 Suns- 95.9
    '13 Clippers- 91.1
    All of these teams have much slower paces than the '62 Warriors. Furthermore, the LOWEST pace of the '62 season season was 122.9 from the Chicago Packers, which is still 20 posessions more than the highest pace on this list. The '05 Suns had the highest pace of the '05 season too.

    I know, the 2001 Lakers are one of the historic teams in Play Now.
    He needs a 99 overall though, he was literally unstoppable in his prime.

    1

    I personally think he deserves a 98 ovr like Wilt, both are widely considered the most dominant players to step in a court in vastly similar but at the same time different ways of playing the game, also we need a full course of BBQ Chicken...

    "Wilt's stats always got a lot worst". Is that why he won Finals MVP the year before he retired?

    0

    the year before he retired at 35 years old (take into account the medical and training knowledge of those days) he averaged 19.2 RPG, 4.0 APG and 14.8 PPG in RS, and in PO 21 RPG, 3.3 APG and 14.7 PPG, at 35 years old, worse or not, the guy dominated and this time could get quite the fight with his team from 1971-72 unlike his days when he had pretty much everything running through him, though at fault compared to Shaq PPG in his championship season, Shaq has never rebounded more than Wilt or assisted more in any of his championship seasons and even the other ones, they still dominated the game like no other and were pretty much unstoppable in their best seasons, hence why i suggested both being 98 OVR or even 99 if we come to this point.

    0

    Wilt was still better. Wilt deserves a 99. Shaq deserves a 98-97. Since he can't shoot to save his soul

    0

    wilt was not better, he was an all time great but shaq was more dominant in an era with a lot better players and more teams. Bill Russell and Wilt were the only 2 really good centers and it would make sense for a league with 8 teams that there would be 2 super teams that played a lot in the finals. Wilt stat padded and would often throw the ball off the backboard 2-3 times in a play just to get more rebounds so the rebounding difference is irrelevant. Put wilt in the 90's with Hakeem, Shaq and DRob and he would still be great, but not better than shaq

    1

    I don't understand how can you even believe that Wilt is better than Shaq. There isn't a comparison. Wilt is better than Shaq in literally every area. It's not Wilt's fault that he played in an era that wasn't even weak. You claim that there were only 2 really good centers. But there was Bill, Kareem, Nate Thurmond, Willis Reed, and many others. Wilt would constantly outplay them but would be beaten in a team's perspective. (Except for Kareem, Nate and Willis. They were beaten in both areas.) Wilt didn't stat pad, you claim he would throw the ball of the backboard 2-3 times in a play, you cannot say this because of your evidence of this actually happening. But there's evidence of Wilt's hustle to get these rebounds. Considering the fact that he once got 41 rebounds off of Bill Russel. If for some reason he threw the ball off the backboard to get the rebounds. It doesn't change the fact that he still got a ton of rebounds. In a league with 8 teams there weren't 2 super teams that weren't playing a lot in the finals. BECAUSE WILT WASN'T PLAYING BILL IN THE FINALS FOR THE MAJORITY OF HIS CAREER, HE WAS PLAYING HIM IN THE CONFERENCE FINALS. The reason why I put this in caps, to show how wrong you were, and there were a multitude of different teams making it to the finals. It was just the Boston Celtics making it every year, vs another team. You're forgetting that two teams have never played each other back-back-back in nba history.

    I expect the 98 version being for his 1962 season, and a 99 Moments version of you guessed it, 100 points.

    0

    98 for averaging 50 ppg...

    0

    yeah, is just that when it comes to impact in the NBA and current gens, sadly Jordan comes on top, and by that few people actually like to acknowledge Wilt since he is spoken as standing at the same or even being better than MJ is, and secluded by the train of thought they hate him even though he was actually very kind to others for what he could have done.
    And probably MJ 6-6 finals record and 33.4 points average on fcking playoffs, which pales to Wilt 22.5 in playoffs.

    0

    It's not Wilt's fault he had to play against a dynasty that won 11 championships. Technically 12.

    0

    Yeah, hard to win when you play against probably one of the best if not the best defensive team of all time, with the best defensive C of all time....still, kudos to him, he ripped them pretty often, but his team didn't follow sadly.

    -1

    Shaq was better than Wilt IMO. He was able to dominate both regular season and the playoffs, Wilt wasn't.

    1

    Hard to say, Shaq didn't have to deal with Russell's Celtics, Wilt didn't have to deal with Spurs,Pacers,76ers and New Jersey Nets, i consider them at this point equal, Wilt being a bit more complete, Shaq being more heavy and by that, direct and powerful (not exactly stronger)

    0

    Wilt's stats always got a lot worse in the playoffs while Shaq's got better. Shaq > Wilt

    1

    so....while i consider both equal, you telling me it isn't right and that Shaq is better?, if that's were we are going, sadly i have no interest into get in a long ass debate, i consider both equal and that's why i consider both deserve 98, not only Wilt, which is why i commented in the first place, sorry that i don't keep the debate but i am really not interested...

    Check Wilt's stats in the playoffs and in the finals

    0

    Shaq never played against an 8 peat team.
    Shaq never made it to the finals with Kobe.
    Shaq never got 30+ rebounds.
    Shaq never got 70+ points.
    Wilt's stats were a downgrade in the playoffs. But that's mainly due to the competition that he was playing against. Not to mention. He was the only scoring option on his team during the Celtics Dynasty. If Shaq played against a Celtics dynasty, Bill Russel would expose him.

    -1

    Uhh shaq was in the finals against hakeem when he was on the magic. Wayy before lakers stint. The Celtics would expose shaq but not Russell let's be real, Dikembe was taller then Russell and weighed more and he got bullied by shaq bill would get obliterated. Bill is just too small sadly, the Celtics of the 60s would be great against shaqs magic and lakers idk if they would steamroll due to the athleticism difference (any point guard in the 60s that was 6'7 like penny? or a guard that was 6'6 like kobe?) it would be a great matchup but as gifted as wilt was, their was no excuse for his stats to drop in playoffs and finals regardless who he was playing.

    If we compare the stats between the two. Averaged in Playoffs.
    Wilt had 23 PPG
    Shaq had 24 PPG.
    Wilt Had 25 RPG.
    Shaq had 12.
    Wilt had 4 APG
    Shaq had 3 APG.
    If we look for the best playoff series's.
    It's literally not even close, so there's no point in putting the numbers that you know.

    0

    in that era there were more possesions a game than todays era, meaning more shots to rebound.

    0

    In an era where there was hand checking and constant fouling.

    0

    We know the rebounding numbers are skewed due to the pace for the 60s and 70s along with the % of shots from the field and from free throw range was terrible, hence more rebounding chances, along with 6'5 players catching 20 board games which is close to unheard of today since players got better and pace slowed down.

    0

    The rebounding numbers weren't scewed. Wilt Chamberlain to this day has the highest FG% in a season. If you're averaging 50 PPG, then how do you expect to shoot higher then 50 FG%

    0

    I mean, he couldn't shoot well, combined with nobody being able to out jump a 7 footer with a 40 inch vert yea I expect 50 ppg. Also the pace, and terrible fg% it was explains why everybody averaged insane amount of boards. Rodman purely hustled plain and simple. The pace was slower during the time he was playing along with the fact that he was shorter then most great centers in his career. Wilt was phenomenal but born in an era to where he couldn't be tested 1 on 1.

    0

    He could shoot well. He has the greatest post moves to date. Even better then Hakeems. Just do research on him. Not everyone had a terrible FG%, Wilt, in fact has the record for best FG% in a season. with .73%. That doesn't make sense to me that you said he couldn't be tested 1 on 1, maybe you're pointing out the fact that he was constantly triple-teamed. The pace couldn't've been that fast because people averaged 48 minutes per game. If it was fast, then that would make it a bigger accomplishment for Wilt to be averaging 48 minutes per game.

    0

    Ok. It may be an inch off but explain Dennis Rodman getting 18 rebounds per game.

    bill wouldn't make it in todays NBA

    Your knowledge about historic basketball is clearly not up to par with someone who has done a measly 1 minute of research. So I question why even argue about something you clearly do not know about?

    -1

    a 6'9 center with no offensive game, best case scenario he is a defensive star. Face the fact that he has 11 rings because legit the only other team was whatever team wilt played on, and Bill played with 16 hall of famers, 8 on one team at a time. There was also only 4 people over 6'8 in the league, so it's not like it was competitive. He could maybe be a ben wallace, but Bill didn't have the strength or vertical of Big Ben, so maybe next time don't try and fucking call me out bitch

    1

    I have every right to call out someone that is clearly wrong. I can easily prove every single thing you just said wrong.
    His primary abilities are defensive abilities but he can also be good on offense. His best offensive season was a season in which he averaged 19 on 45 FG%. This isn't HOF numbers, but it still proves that he was an offensive presence. He did play with 16 HOFs but not all of them were HOF material. They were just in the HOF because they were alongside Bill Russel, not because of their skill.
    Dear god, "4 people over 6'8 in the league".Here is my proof when I say that there were 98 6'8 and above players in the league. http://bkref.com/tiny/JFVKX. This of course was done exactly during the time Bill Russel played, 61-70.
    Bill Russell had a god like vertical, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2AlFrOj5Mc

    -1

    45% is low for a center, and how can you only get 19 when you are taller than most others in the league. Also, how are their 98 6'8 players in the league if the league had like 10 teams, that doesn't add up.

    Maybe not greatest but definitely most dominant

    0

    Hakeem swept Shaq in the playoffs though... and then beat him in a one on one televised game. I'd say Kareem, Hakeem, Shaq, Wilt. Wilt's era was just not on the same level. Athletics and sport science were nothing like they are now and the game was too new to have the advanced skills players as a whole developed later. Shaq/Kareem/Hakeem dominated in era's where the entire league could be defined as an elite athlete.

    -1

    tbh I view bill and kareem as PF's, shaq and wilt were the defintion of dominant big men

    -1

    No way, I can see Kareem, but Russell, no way, the only thing he really did was rebound and score a few points.

    -1

    Russel is the greatest defender of all time.

    0

    Bro im saying power fowards...not greatest of all time. I think he plays more like a center.

    -2

    Russel is overrated cause of how dominant the team was. barely in the top 10 big men

    -6

    Wilt wasn't a center in my eyes. Russel was a defensive specialist. Kareem was great but was weak in the post. Got bullied by bigger guys, Hakeem in my eyes is the only player on your list comparable to Shaq, strong, athletic, elite post player. That dominated both ends of the court with swagger and intimidation.

    Means you're not a center?

    -2

    No. Blocks don't mean your a center. Will Chamberlain was in a league of his own. To me he wasn't a center, he was a big man. A hybrid. I would allow Wilt to play the power forward spot. I would never trust shaq there.

    -1

    I don't understand what doesn't make him a center.

    0

    Its not that he isn't a center. He isn't comparable to Shaq because they are opposites. Like is it fair to compare Westbrook to Curry? No. Because Westbrook is a different type nof player.

    0

    They had Identical playstyles! And both were overpowering their defenders swatting shots and grabbing boards. And wilt was definitely a CENTER. and Bill Russel was an amzing all around player, but he wanted to win more than he wanted stats., and kareem went in the post a TON and would drain post shot a TOn that why he is 1st all time scoring.

    They really aren't opposites.

    Yo this card is lit!!! I just got him and i've only played 5 games but i'm averaging 35 points a game! He's just unstoppable in the paint. He backs down defenders and then just slams it in their face. He is incredibly dominant. I only wish that they made him look more muscular like how he was back in those days. The shaq they give you looks like modern day shaq who went on a super size me challenge. Regardless of that tho he's 4sure one if the the best card I have.
