In 28 meetings, Wilt's Lakers won 14 games while Kareem's Bucks also won 14 games.

Here are their stats:

- Wilt Chamberlain: 16.1 ppg, 18.2 rpg, 3.4 apg, .526 FG%

- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: 31.0 ppg, 16.4 rpg, 3.9 apg, .464 FG%

Wilt Chamberlain was aged 33 to 36 during all of those games and, at that stage of his career, was happy to defer to Jerry West offensively.

It's incredible that someone so old was able to do such an amazing job against the young Kareem. If he could do this well in his mid-30s, imagine how much better Wilt would have been than Kareem if they'd played when Wilt was in his prime?

Double the points
Owned Wilt the "stilt" and that was when Kareem wasn't even strong yet

I suppose you were impressed when Kobe put up some big numbers against a 38 year old Michael Jordan

Yet, by your own Kobetard standards for the Mamba...Wilt would be like 40 years old here with all the heavy minutes he played. You seem to ignore that Wilt was in a real system at this point, and not looking for his shot as he would in his younger years...

Kareem = not strong yet.....Wilt = on crutches and old at this point.

What's striking here is that Kareem is normally a 55-58% FG shooter, while Wilt held him to 46%, far below a big man's standards, especially his own..........

Kareem was still a skinny kid, like Wilt was in the early 60's
A kid vs a man...and he still was better pretty easily

Better cuz he took more shots?? PLEASE, take that trash to the garbage.

Wilt must have swatted 4 times more shots than Jabbar did...that's just WRONG.

My grandpa once told me that Wilt would dunk from so far away, that they decided to create a 3 point line.

Russell 11 rings.

Wilt outplayed Russell in nearly every game though.

So what's your point?
