I don't think Wilt ever had a stretch like that while Russell did. This is why the players voted Russell MVP over Wilt several times.
What do you mean by "go all out"? As in letting Wilt be a one-man show or demanding a trade?
As for MVP we all know it usually goes to the player with best records. One of Russell's MVP years he wasn't even in All-NBA first team. That makes no sense.
