I mean, I remember Dirk outplaying Lebron in the finals but that doesn't make me think Dirk somehow dominated Lebron.

If a 39 year old Kareem could do that to him, imagine what a prime/peak Kareem would do. Between the two there is no comparison. There is no big that came after Kareem that is on his level.

Yet in the 'weak' '70s, he only managed to win 1 title. This is despite playing for 6 seasons with Oscar Robertson and another all star in Bob Dandridge so it's not like he was playing with bad teammates like MJ.

In his 10 prime seasons before Magic, his team:

Made Finals 2x Won 1x
Lost in Conference Finals 3x
Lost in Conference Semis 2x
Lost in 1st Rnd 1x
Missed playoff 2x

I'm not sure this is really a resume worthy of how high he's usually ranked.
Wait, he won 1 title staying in Milwaukee? How many allstars teammates did he have?
Shouda couda collude with 2 allstars and win more rings then leave that team to
team up with another player who average 25 pts, 14 rebs and a dynamic PG who can average 33 pts in the finals.
