Default How come nobody makes fun of Wilt Chamberlain anymore?

Are people finally starting to accept his place in history as an NBA GOAT candidate and the GOAT physical specimen/most dominant individual basketball force ever?

Lauber isn't here anymore so people don't feel the need to troll Wilt?

Nobody wants to talk about 50s/60s basketball when nobody could even dribble with their off-hand

People don't make fun of Wilt, they make fun of Wilt homers.

the guy twisted his ankle i don't see what the big deal is, that isn't Wilt's era either, that's 50's ball before the league was integrated, Wilt played the decade after and into the 70's

players (including Cousy) could handle the ball back then, that's just a misleading slow-motion gif that doesn't encapsulate anything except an awkward play

I could do the same thing in 40 years about this Lebron/Kobe era. I'll just keep posting this gif and say it encapsulates this whole era of weak post moves, would that be accurate?

OP - How's your Bill Russell highlights video coming out (or did you say you were doing two?)? I'm really looking forward to it

Pretty good post move, he just took a bad shot and made a bad decision

Nice try, 50s and 60s basketball is irrelevant. Anything before Magic/Bird shouldn't count.

Haven't worked on it for a long time TBH lol sorry, I work on many projects at once, and sometimes I'll make a big push to get one finished. But nobody has talked a ton of trash about Bill Russell, I suppose if peope start talking trash about him i'd have a bit more incentive to finish it up quickly. There's a reason I got Jerry West and Wilt out of the way, they were getting shitted on heavily - West for "not being able to dribble", and Wilt for "playing 5-9 white centers" and both being perceived as "roleplayers" who would be unspecial today. I did mixes of Elgin Baylor/Gus Johnson/Nate Thurmond too but that was mostly because those were interesting players that don't actually have a lot of footage so it didn't take me as long to comb through footage and make those mixes. I suppose I should work a bit more on Russell now.

no, this white 60's player who averaged 7ppg has what deserves to be called a "pretty good post move",

Lebron on the other hand just looks awful with that move he tried to pull. He has shown flat-out terrible post move attempts many times, post play is not his strength at all let's not pretend that his attempt to get a shot off in that gif was anything but terrible.

lol it's all good...I love all your mixes, and I'm always eager to see new footage
