A GOAT DISCUSSION THREAD
I thought we (and others) could continue our conversation from @threeofsix ’s thread over here and respect the wishes in the other thread:

If we’re speaking strictly offensively, what about Wilt Chamberlain and his offensive dominance? I fully respect Bobby Orr, mind you, but Wilt Chamberlain was an offensive force like nothing basketball has ever seen before or since. There’s a lot of innacuracies about him, the greatest being that he didn’t play against anyone his size. Wilt was 7’1 and the average center was 6’10. In today’s game the average center is 6’11. It’s not his fault he had better physical gifts than the other players; isn’t that much of the argument in favor of Orr, anyway?
This is a really solid collection of his records, many as unbreakable as any records in sports. I would suggest any basketball fan would enjoy how it often they list who was ‘second best’ and how enormous the disparity is between he and the other great scorers. Often, he’s also second…🤔
Love a guy who knows his stuff.
Wilt is right there behind Orr in per game numbers by position, except MJ scored as many points as Wilt per game, but Jabbar was well below Wilt.
Not as much as Coffey (#2) was behind Orr in points per game.
If we look into other factors between Wilt/Jabbar and Orr/Coffey, then Bobby Orr’s #’s per game becomes stronger.
1 GOAT. Bobby Orr
2 GOAT. Wilt
3 GOAT. Secretariat
