This series was between two of the best big man and players in the NBA History and at that time as well

Prime Walton vs Prime Kareem

Best defensive player vs Best Offensive Player



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ybv618uKanM

Here is some footage

In the link, it says

Series averages:

Kareem - 30.3 ppg, 16 rpg, 3.8 apg, 3.8 bpg, 60.8 FG%
Walton: 19.3 ppg, 14.8 rpg, 5.8 apg, 2.3 bpg, 51 FG%.


But i don't know are the informations valid

Kareem did have a 40 point game, 33, 30 if i'm not wrong and another good game

I read somewhere that he came off 35- 37 point performance in average, but he was stopped to 30 when he played against Walton

The sports writers back in the day, said that Walton 'dominated' Kareem when even Bill said that he didn't. That's because of the hate Kareem received in his day

I don't have valid stats on this one

Maybe some of you know this
