Default Any interest in watching the 1969 NBA all-star game?

http://www.basketball-reference.com/.../NBA_1969.html

I have the first half uploaded as an unlisted video on my youtube channel and can upload the 2nd half later tonight if people want to see the full game.

Standout performers of the game were the veterans Robertson (game MVP) of the East, and Elgin Baylor + Chamberlain (Wilt locks down the paint defensively) who made the most impact trying to keep the West afloat. Oscar wasn't alone in the East, the young gun Earl Monroe had arguably just as good of a game / statline.

Yeah sure. Why was it such a low scoring game if teams generally scored more points then? The complete opposite of today

It was lower scoring because the prizes were more valuable, and they played defense. All-Star games meant more back then

Thanks, CavaliersForTheWin!

There's visible defensive effort throughout the '69 all-star game so yah it's a bit backwards from the typical trend of modern vs vintage style ball. There's more showboating and look-at-me plays in recent all-star games... players like KD are scoring numerous uncontested baskets (check out his highlights from this past all-star game). All-star weekend is just a different thing today. I think they weren't concerned about being entertaining in '69, they were instead taking the game seriously and just trying to win. The earlier 60's legends were "over the hill" (or at least getting there) and a fresh crop of elite 70's talent was hungry to compete and cut them down. I won't have the 2nd half until later tonight but here's the first half:

Repped you some day ago, Cavs, so can't rep again but thank you for the footage. Great stuff!

By the way, since you're the one who actually feeds us with all this footage rather than spamming about some random quotes as proof a la Jlauber, can you feed us some of the footage where Wilt gets double and triple teamed?

Yeah, bro, I've seen that one but it's not really what I'm looking for. That is Wilt in college playing against short white scrubs.

Jlauber spams constantly about how much double and triple teams Wilt faced in the NBA but he is only spamming quotes and I've never seen any footage at all that proves Jlauber's nonsense, and I don't find him credible anyway..

CavaliersFTW is the one I go to when I want to learn something new about that era or if there's some interesting footage I'd like to see, he always provides me with great valid stuff. People should check his stuff way more often instead of reading Jlauber's crazy biased essays and cherry picked stats, sure, CavaliersFTW is biased too like all of us but he's more into providing true facts rather than made up nonsense and cherry picked stats.

Thanks for this. I'm really enjoying watching the 1969 game. I've seen it before (can't remember where or when - but the commentary is familiar as are many of the baskets/plays), but it's great to see it again.

Crystal clear things players say that you can hear on the floor during the first half:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X49Vi7IRyKE

10:22 Oscar Robertson screams at the ref "OFFENSE!?" after offensive foul call

10:33 Bill Russell tells ref "nobody touched it" as ball goes out

11:04 Oscar Robertson: "HE HIT IT! HE HIT THE...." trying to make the ref change the call

17:24 someone yells "Get in there Dave!" at Dave Bing

28:31 "awwww shhhh*t" Jeff Mullins after fouling Earl Monroe

31:49 Lenny Wilkins jawin at the ref after the ball is given too the East "Let it go how bout Wes (Unseld) comin over my back" (or somethin like that)

Hmmm yah I can keep my eye out for some and post it, it I'm sure I can come accross a few highlights of that type of defense against him. Just a heads up newspapers and interviews by other players suggest it was typically a tactic almost exclusively implemented by the Boston Celtics of the early 60's when Wilt's teams were structured to depend on his scoring abilities but not when Wilt played for teams coached by Alex Hannum as a high-post facilitator because they knew he would pass off to the open man as soon as a double came to him. This would explain why both 1964 NBA finals and 1967 NBA finals games of Wilt doesn't showcase much double-teaming from the Celtics. Seeing as how there is only limited footage of Wilt in the early 60s when his job was to score (and no games), it is probably why such little footage exists of these alleged double-teams but I'm confident that it was true and that I do have footage of it in my library.
