LOL, no chance he'd be the best player today. LeBron would be universally regarded as the better player. 35/17 in the weak 70's era.

Jabbar will block LeBron's every shot he takes

LeBron dominant in a weak & soft era with no Quailty Center

Prime DRobinson, KG, Patrick Ewing, Moses Malone, TimmyD, Bill Walton etc etc...my point is, I'm not taking away from KAJ anything but it's a perimeter game today, it started in 2004 and it coincides with a lack of talent in the C position in today's NBA. Saying KAJ would kill in today's NBA, while that may be true because after all, who would stop him, you can also say that about a number of great centers from the past and the results would be the same...
Yup.

People are so dumb. They honestly think it's just a coincidence that the rules changed (to make big men less effective and perimeter player more effective) and big men stopped being effective in basketball at the same time.

With today's rules and refs highly unlikely.

What do people not understand? There are no dominant big men because the league made sure to remove the need for them. NBA is becoming more like NCAA with focus on guard play, perimeter scoring and the 3 pointer.

With the 5 second rule, 3 second rule, lightning quick penetrating PGs and constant slashing the big men get in foul trouble quickly and on offense they get doubled often. The refs also call offensive fouls more frequently.

If you think Shaq, Kareem and Hakeem would be putting up even more ridiculous numbers today you are naive. Shaq would be fouled out by halftime if he kept ramming and elbowing his defender, Kareem/Hakeem would have to move around and waste energy chasing these quick PGs and would get in foul trouble every time they touched Durant, Lebron, Harden, etc.

These guys would put up 28/15, but it wouldn't be any easier, the game has changed.

Yeah, but imagine Kareem in the 2013 Eastern conference. It'd be owning at the next level.
