Anyone who votes for Oscar over West deserves to be mauled by a Siberian tiger.

Grant it being voted in is due to popularity and it's more of a materialistic item, but the best do tend to achieve these monuments. It's not a huge case, but it's a case.
Making the playoffs your whole career is definately a notable accomplishment. Considering the players you named, if Julius wasn't there they'd go nowhere. Comparing the depth of the team you can say Julius had a little more depth but the team with Elgin Baylor is overall better. It's like comparing 2001 Lakers to the 2001 Blazers.

he made 0.1 threes per game in his career, and had a career high of 0.4 threes made per game

he wasnt a three point shooter. at all.

I'm not claiming he was a 3 point shooter, I'm just stating that he had the capability.

It isn't too far fetched considering some rank him the second greatest PG of all-time

he made 0.1 threes per game in his career, and had a career high of 0.4 threes made per game

he wasnt a three point shooter. at all.



he has played with some great players

doug collins, world b free, caldwell jones, daryl dawkins, bobby jones, mo cheeks, andrew toney

not all-world kinda talent, but still, he had plenty of help



i think the only justification for having the doctor this high, is if you really value how he revolutionised the game, from dunking, to being such a huge part of the aba, and to being one of the first black superstars embraced by america. what he did for the game.



i vote for oscar robertson

I vote for oscar also. BUt if you think all Doc did was dunk you must have never seen him play. He was unstoppable.Did you mention Caldwell Jones
