    i've posted this before but here again is bill russell going coast to coast in 5 steps and jumping over a man from just inside the free throw line to lay it in.



    the competition is a valid point but there were 14 teams in the league at the end of his run, which is not quite like original 6 NHL. (there were 8 teams when he entered the league).

    and he owned the era's best player's, from bob petit at the start of his career to wilt chamberlain for the rest of his career.

    maybe that's unimpressive, but wilt still has the most ridiculous raw numbers of any era and had the size and athleticism to ragdoll just about any big man that's ever played (see size comparisons to well known big men below).

    i would still rank him 2nd probably. both would have dominated any era they played in i think


    But even those days Bill Russel had career FG% of 44% and 56% from FT. Rebounding numbers were disgusting though. But is it too crazy to say that game evolved?

        • Detroit Pistons fans appear to be “out” on Fred VanVleet this summer
          https://pistonpowered.com/2020/05/08...nvleet-summer/


          So the results are clear. Albeit a small sample size at just 314 votes, (the poll was only 6 hours long) this is likely a good indication of where people are at with this idea.

          The Pistons will have plenty of other options that they can pursue, and they’ll likely be on contracts that fall well short of whatever he’s inevitably paid.

          If they’re able to land a point guard in the draft, the necessity to overreach in free agency could be alleviated. So while VanVleet may be on their radar, unless something cataclysmic happens with Toronto’s negotiations, he’s going to remain a Raptor.

          • With the new cap, the numbers will be small everywhere. Sucks to be a free agent. Fred will probably get a deal south of $15M when he could have had a $20M+ if corona never happened.

            • One interesting idea that has come up recently is the thought of bringing back the amnesty clause. If the cap drops significantly it might not be a bad option to allow teams to stay cap neutral instead of going into heavy tax.

              The Raptors don't have any dead weight contracts on their books.. but they could become buyers. Most significant contracts out there that could get amnestied are guys like Love, Wall, Griffin or Wiggins.

                  If you're going to say something like that, then you BETTER be damn good at your job. People likes to make fun of Stephen A, Skip, Kellerman etc..Nick Wright is the worst of the bunch by far.

                  The night LeBron passed Kobe on the all time scoring list, Nick Wright tweeted a bunch of nasty/disrespectul things about Kobe. The following day Kobe's helicopter crashed. What did Nick Wright do? like the coward that he is he immediately deleted all of his Kobe tweets. The guy is a slimeball. Give me Paul Pierce over Nick Wright anyday of the week.

                    maybe PP can't put him in his top five because he is remembering the all-time bed-shitting in a critical game 5 of a tied series against his celtics, when lebron effectively checked out of a 60+ win 1-seed cleveland team to form the super friends.

                    try to find the equivalent of that game in MJ's career. or any of the players in his top five.

                              Apparently basketball evolved after post-Russell, Wilt & Kareem, ultimately peaking during Jordan's era, but has been in a rapid decline since MJ retired. Strange, but true.
