Default Re: James Worthy vs Dominique Wilkins

I don't think you realized how much he stifled his game to win championships with the Showtime Lakers, he was far more capable of doing what he did.
I watched enough of Worthy back in the 80's and I know he was good but he gets a LOT of mileage from having played with Kareem, Magic, and the rest of that bunch.

Coincidentally enough, a current comparison to Worthy is another Laker, Pau Gasol. Who cared about Gasol when he was in Memphis? He was just another good player. He goes to LA, benefits from having Kobe and company, and suddenly he's a *great* player...
