Rules for discussion, include a 7 to 12 year stretch and the associated numbers. No player that started before the 79-80 season. Most of us can't honestly know how good the players before then were, and the video clip evidence is so shaky that it is incomprehensible to realistically compare players from that era. Also, no jlauber Wilt Chamberlain tangent essay posts.
Shaq and Kobe come to mind first.
Shaq:13-14 seasons 1993-2006. Avg: 26-12-3 on 58% (holy sh*t!) 2.5 blocks
best season: 1999-2000: 30-13.6-4 57% 3.0 blocks
Kobe: 12 seasons 2001-2012. Avg: 28-6-5 on 45%
best season: 03, 06 or 08
