Elvin Hayes is my vote
You need to get past the basic statistics. I already pointed out in the last thread why Hayes is a bad choice, but you obviously can't get past the stats. Why else would you vote for him over genuinely better players from his own era like Cowens and Walton?
As for Schayes, he played in 12 consecutive All-Star Games, is a 6 x All-NBA 1st Team and 6 x All-NBA 2nd Team member, and won a championship.
Since you love statistics so much, put this one in your pipe and smoke it: Dolph Schayes has the highest Win Shares of the 1950s.
Meanwhile, Schayes' True Shooting Percentage was higher than George Mikan, Bob Cousy and others.
