We're talking about a guy with better win shares than 4 of the centers in the Top 12 PLAYERS ever
. And career numbers where he is Top 5 in NBA history, in shooting, rebounds, and blocks.
This should be an end thread with Artis getting on, and he should have already been on the list before.
Come on man, win shares?
I think Artist is underrated but got damn. Tryin to get him in by saying he has better win shares than Moses, Shaq, Dream and Russell when he didn't win any where close to these guys. Even Ewing who you mention he has more then, he didn't win as much as Patrick.
He should be one of the next centers to be voted in along with Bob Lanier and maybe Zo Mourning.
