Don't see why some are mad at the Bird votes. If Chamberlain didn't underachieve as a player he could of easily been at the top 2-3 spot.

I would much rather have Bird on my team in a game 7 than Chamberlain.

He should of won at least 4 championships. I remember in an interview with Russell, Wilt himself admitted that maybe he didn't have a killer instinct, he didn't take basketball as serious as Russell, MJ, Bird & Magic.

Default Re: #5 NBA Player Of All-Time According to InsideHoops

I don't have the same reasoning's as the big veto (haha) But I can give some legitimate reasons as to why Wilt is above Bird, Kareem etc....But, there is no point people have a right to believe what they want and I'm not going to be the one to try to convince them...It would take a LOT to make my point but I'd rather not get bashed and be Labled Jlauber 2...cuz I doubt anyone would actually read all of it anyway haha...NOT dissing bird or anyone else, I love all these guys you cant go wrong with ANYONE in the top 10

He got great stats but he choked a lot - thus he "only" got 2 rings.

Default Re: #5 NBA Player Of All-Time According to InsideHoops

this might be as good a place as any to ask:

last week I ordered Bill Russell's first two books (Go Up for Glory and Second Wind), which should be arriving in the coming days (in great condition for a couple of bucks of piece)

is there anything in particular within them worth reading?
