Really advanced stats are hard to make with the data there's around for older games.
Michael Jordan is also the goat for stat-geeks, and Wilt is actually not that super duper (on par with Kareem and Shaq)

Guys who get extra credit from the stat community are:
-Chauncey Billups
-David Robinson
-John Stockton
-Horace Grant
-Chris Paul
-Dirk Nowitzki
-Neil Johnston
-Adrian Dantley
-Tyson Chandler
-Sidney Moncrief
-Bobby Jones
-Charles Barkley (76ers)
-Larry Nance
-Terry Porter

I myself love SAPM: here's a top ten Power Forwards all time (with links to other positions at the bottom of the page)

17K rebs.

Wilt:

Well none can't beat Wilt's #4 all time points and #1 rebounding. And a career 30 ppg 22 rpg average. Think about it. Last year only two players had games of 30 pts and 22 rebs. Wilt averaged that for his career.

He averaged like 4 apg for his career I think. One season he lead the league in assists, to prove a point.

Some monster Wilt games that are even less likely than his 100 point game to ever be replicated:

Feb 2, 1968 Wilt had a Double Triple-Double:
22 points, 25 rebounds, and 21 assists

Dec 8, 1961 Wilt had:
78 points, 43 rebounds.

It was a different era, but taking into account stats only he's far better than MJ because of his insane rebounding.

Yesterday, Samuel Dalembert scored 35 on 81% in 27 minutes so he is the GOAT scorer.
