- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: 31.0 ppg, 16.4 rpg, 3.9 apg, .464 FG%

Wilt Chamberlain was aged 33 to 36 during all of those games and, at that stage of his career, was happy to defer to Jerry West offensively.

It's incredible that someone so old was able to do such an amazing job against the young Kareem. If he could do this well in his mid-30s, imagine how much better Wilt would have been than Kareem if they'd played when Wilt was in his prime?
Double the points
Owned Wilt the "stilt" and that was when Kareem wasn't even strong yet
