Cool Is LeBron James the next Wilt Chamberlain?

Not Michael, Not Magic, but Wilt.

As in he Wilts under the pressure.

For the comparison:

- Both physical specimens
- Best athletes of their era
- Post gaudy stats

- Both are losers


Discuss.

i don't think lebron can bench press 2,000 lbs while simultaneously having sex with a different woman every hour and killing mountain lions at the same time.

you can say he might go through the same journey as Wilt, but James is a much better player than Wilt ever was. He is also better than Bird, Magic, Russel and West. If we're being honest. From a strictly basketball stand point.

I was going to mention this but didn't want jlauber writing a 10 page essay about Wilt's godly feats so I decided to shut it.

In all honesty, I do see a comparison between them as the physical specimens of their day with an abundance of talent. However referring to Chamberlain as a loser is wrong. He lost four game 7's to the Celtics by 9 combined points. First two series in '62 and '65 he took inferior teams (the Sixers a .500 team when he joined) to the final possession of Game 7 both times. By all accounts too the '62 series was altered by the referees against Philly.

Don't compare a loser like Lebron to Wilt ever again.

I am more concerned that somehow the OP tried to tie these two players together into some sort of discussion... wow, weak trolling....
