Dear Scottie,

I have nothing but respect for you my friend as an athlete and knowledgeable basketball mind. But you are way off in your assessment of who is the greatest player of all time and the greatest scorer of all time. Your comments are off because of your limited perspective. You obviously never saw Wilt Chamberlain play who undoubtedly was the greatest scorer this game has ever known. When did MJ ever average 50.4 points per game plus 25.7 rebounds? (Wilt in the 1962 season when blocked shot statistics were not kept). We will never accurately know how many shots Wilt blocked. Oh, by the way in 1967 and 68, Wilt was a league leader in assists. Did MJ ever score 100 points in a game? How many times did MJ score more than 60 points in a game? MJ led the league in scoring in consecutive seasons for 10 years but he did this in an NBA that eventually expanded into 30 teams vs. when Wilt played and there were only 8 teams….

In terms of winning, Michael excelled as both an emotional and scoring leader but Bill Russell’s Celtics won eight consecutive NBA Championships. Bill’s rebounding average per game is over 22.5 lifetime, MJs best rebounding years was eight per game (1989).… Bill played on a total of 11 championship teams and as you very well know, Scottie, the ring is the thing, and everything else is just statistics. So I would advise you to do a little homework before crowning Michael or LeBron with the title of best ever. As dominant as he is, LeBron has yet to win a championship. I must say that it looks like Miami has finally put the team together that will change that circumstance. Its my hope that today’s players get a better perspective on exactly what has been done in this league in the days of yore.

Affectionately,

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,
NBA’s All-Time Leading Scorer




What do u guys think?

Yeah, I think Kareem is offended because he feels like he's the best scorer of all-time.. not Wilt. How he signed it says it all. It would just be kinda weird writing a letter explaining how you're the greatest scorer of all-time.

Kareem just has to remember that he played for like 100 years.... that's why he has the most points scored in NBA history.

Kareem's been an ass lately.

Last night on Chelsea Lately
Host: So I hear you had some issues with a statude outside Staples Center?
Kareem: Chelsea.......
Host: What
Kareem: How tall you think Magic's statue is?
Host: ....
Kareem: 17 feet
Host: ok
Kareem: How tall you think Michael Jordan's is?
Host: 16 or 18
Kareem: 17 feet
Host: ... okay.
Kareem: How tall is Jerry West's?
Host: i dont know
Kareem: half that.
Host: okay.
Kareem: how tall should mine be?
Host: 20 feet.
Kareem. Ha.

I wanted to hit him. Didn't even really answer what she was looking for.

The thing about Kareem though is he is the probably the one legend to play through the most eras

He went up against old Russel
Played with Oscar
Played against Wilt
Played against Jerry West
Dominated the 70's in general and everyone in it
Played with Magic
Played against Bird and his Celtics
Played against the bad boy Pistons
Played against Jordan&Scottie
Played against Hakeem


Thats one hell of a list. IDK about u guys but even if his opinion is biased he has the track record to be right!

Damn, he's on a mission.
I guess he feels he is unappreciated as a player?

I think Kareem is a bit unappreciated today

He thinks that he should be in the debate of the greatest player ever, and by now, he should have been a world known sports legend. In that way, he feels unappreciated and i think he rightfully does.
