Why would a team let a player shoot a jumper if he can't make 40% of his FTs?

If you actually believe Wilt Chamberlain would average 50 points today - you are a certified moron.

Also Shaq > Wilt. Shaq played more like a man. No f fadeaways just sheer physical domination.

Those fadeaways were effective scoring route three. In order of priority:
Baseline
Middle
Fall-away


Shaq only had 2 effective scoring routes.
Baseline
Middle

3 options > 2 options. It just added another dimension to Wilt's game. That's why Wilt averaged 50 at his best, and Shaq only managed 29. Guarantee that other 21 points is those fall aways Shaq didn't have to fall back on.

Yeah, I'm sure that 21 ppg difference is due to Shaq lacking fall aways.



C'mon dude.

You're right - it's also due to him lacking stamina and some offensive rebounding prowess.

When 6.9% of your career shots are beyond 10ft you aren't considered a jump shooter, or even a frequent shooter. Duh fuck you talkin bout?

Most of Wilt's shots are within 10 feet... so is Wilt a jump shooter or not? A jump shot is a type of shot, shouldn't matter how close it is. Guys need to get your arguments straight and come back with some consistency.

I actually disagree with this. Shaq was the more skilled lost post scorer(and overall scorer) imo. Better footwork in the post, and a wider array of fakes and counter-moves to get in close for dunks. He's also a bit quicker and generally more fluid in those movements. Although, much of that is probably a direct result of having come later.

What separated Wilt from Shaq was everything else: defense, rebounding, passing, stamina. Wilt Was near goat in all of those things. Most complete player ever.

10 feet for a center of Wilt's size is an easy floater/hook shot. You actin like he played with some elite physical specimen on a nightly bases.

Hold one more L, homie.
