Not against the Celtics anyway.

I'll agree that Wilt should have more than 2 titles, considering how dominant he was. But beating the Celtics in the early 60s would have been like Jordan beating the Pistons his first three tries.

Great individuals don't beat great teams without enough help. And the consensus is that Wilt didn't have a good enough team around him during his scoring prime. His teams did come close though.
