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.

Having 23 rebounds a game and playing good defense would be part of the reason. The leading scorer on the Lakers was Goodrich, and he only had 6 more ppg than Wilt.

Stop arguing with this troll. No person with an IQ bigger than his shoe size and basketball knowledge more than a 10-year old's would ever call someone a role player just because he didn't lead his team in scoring in certain cases.
At best, he wants to be right at something so bad, he won't stop the b.s until we ignore him and make him think he won (that's why we say stupidity is unbeatable).

(PS. Happy 80 to my Ignore List. )
