Default Re: Wilt Chamberlain free throw dunks:

There was probably a good chance that Wilt would have shot FAR better from the line, had the NBA not banned the dunking of FTs BECAUSE of Chamberlain.

Of course, the NBA was always trying to find rules to curtail Wilt's dominance, so I suspect that they would have moved the line back to 20 ft, (or whatever they would have deemed necessary) to prevent Wilt's "freakish activity."

I don't know if it would have been that advantageous for Wilt to dunk his free throws though.
Taking off from the free throw line for every single free throw and with the amount of free throws attempted per game and minutes he played? Takes a lot of energy to take off from there.

That's a good point...but with the game on the line??

Plus, no one said he had to dunk it...he merely could have jumped from the line to get close enough to flick it in.

Yeah, NBA fans got robbed on 11862 FT-dunks because of the idiots in the NBA who banned Wilt's amazing FT-dunks..

This video clearly shows Wilt Chamberlain's incredible offensive repertoire:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCWrGWuU2Ak

And no, those aren't just college players he's dominating against. Many of those highlights show Chamberlain dominating the likes of Bill Russell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

You know, the same Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who outplayed Hakeem Olajuwon even when Kareem was in his 30s.

You know, the same Hakeem Olajuwon who outplayed Shaquille O'Neal.

You know, the same Shaquille O'Neal who outplayed Dwight Howard.

And yet some idiots think Wilt wouldn't be any better than Javale McGee

Who knows, the game might not have been close at all because Wilt's wasn't able to produce at the same level if he used so much energy on his free throws. We can only guess

Wilt never dominated Kareem
Kareem dominated him

In the 1972 season, Kareem outscored Wilt 201-70 in their five regular season games.
In the six 1972 playoff games, Kareem outscored Wilt 202-67

Millwad = a greater fibber than Wilt Chamberlain. He makes shit up out of the blue and claims it's part of the "Wilt's myths". Even though nobody except himself came up with it.

The same Kareem who called Wilt the most dominant scorer in NBA history.

Yah... like the entire 1971 series... oh wait

Code:
Post season – 1970-71 – WCF playoffs Date: Fri 04/09/71 - Chamberlain 22 pts, 20 rebs, 1 as, 8 blocks, 10-19 FG/FGA – 3 blocks against Jabbar L -Abdul-Jabbar 32 pts, 22 rebs, 1 as, 1 blocks, 14-30 FG/FGA W Wilt diminishes Kareem's game impact by elevating his own offensive production and diminishing Jabbars efficiency, but he does give up too many rebounds to Jabbar. Call it a draw. Date: Sun 04/11/71 - Chamberlain 26 pts, 22 rebs, 0 as, * blocks, 10-21 FG/FGA - Wilt blocked numerious shots L -Abdul-Jabbar 22 pts, 10 rebs, 4 as, * blocks, 9-19 FG/FGA W Wilt completely erased Kareem's individual impact on the Buck's, he actually took Kareem in the negative. He didn't just diminish Kareem and Increase for himself, he flat out outscored and outrebounded him despite the fact that the Buck's GO TO Kareem to score. Date: Wed 04/14/71 - Chamberlain 24 pts, 24 rebs, 3 as, 3 blocks, 9-19 FG/FGA W -Abdul-Jabbar 20 pts, 19 rebs, 6 as, 0 blocks, 8-16 FG/FGA L Same Result. Wilt individually dominated Kareem. Date: Fri 04/16/71 - Chamberlain 15 pts, 16 rebs, 2 as, * blocks, 7-14 FG/FGA L -Abdul-Jabbar 31 pts, 20 rebs, 5 as, * blocks, 14-20 FG/FGA W Given their duties on the teams, this is the only game Kareem had the upper hand. Date: Fri 04/16/71 - Chamberlain 23 pts, 12 rebs, 4 as, 6 blocks, 10-21 FG/FGA – 5 blocks against Jabbar L -Abdul-Jabbar 20 pts, 15 rebs, 5 as, 3 blocks, 7-23 FG/FGA W Wilt dominated the final match up. They both did not rebound well because Kareem tried to take his game outside (and Wilt get's most of his rebounds defensively not offensively.) Wilt outscored Kareem again, and obliterated Kareem's fg% - he blocked Kareem 5 times.

Consensus of game 2: Wilt bests Lew... Wilt Devastating


Consensus of game 3: Even Bucks Oscar Robertson commented - "Chamberlain made a big difference"


Recap of the series 3 games in: Veteran Chamberlain has kept the NBA Most Valuable Player Alcindor from dominating the series


Milwaukee's recap of game 5, and the series: Despite the Buck's victory... A massive image of Wilt swatting their MVP is used to showcase the series and it takes up quite a lot of the sports page real estate... Again, this is the Milwaukee Journal - they extended the game description going out of their way to talk about Wilt's performance for two pages.
Part 1:

Part 2:




Kill yourself.
