March 4th, 2010
Wilt never broke a rim in an NBA game as far as I know. That doesn't mean that he couldn't have done it if he wanted to. Shaq set out to do what he did, he deliberately put all of his weight into the dunk for the express purpose ...

Was Wilt Chamberlain Better Than Kareem Abdul Jabbar?

March 3rd, 2010
Both players played for Lakers, and of course you all know that. But who was the better player? I'll explain it. I would have to go with Wilt.  I was Kareem's biggest fan when he was playing in the NBA, but I was also Wilt's biggest fan just prior to ...
