Re: #67 NBA Player Of All-Time According to InsideHoops
Still giving my support for Artis Gilmore. Don't pooh-pooh on the man's ABA accomplishments. We all know that those numbers still count and they are impressive. Over his NBA career he averaged a double-double in eight seasons. Over 14 seasons in the NBA, Gilmore averaged 17 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks. He also had a phenomenal shooting % of .599 which is the best in NBA history. He made the NBA All-Star game six times. There is no question that he would’ve made the NBA All-Star during his five seasons in the ABA in which he played the best basketball of his career. That is the equivalent of 11 NBA All-Star games. To be a league MVP, All-Star MVP, and Playoff MVP, and make 11 all-star appearances, should get this man into the top 70.
