Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Responds To Scottie Pippen’s Statement

In response to Scottie Pippen’s comment: ” Michael Jordan was the best scorer to ever play the game “NBA Basketball”, and LeBron James maybe the best player to ever play the game of basketball. ”

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made this statement:   “You obviously never saw Wilt Chamberlain play who undoubtedly was the greatest scorer this game has ever known. When did MJ ever average 50.4 points per game plus 25.7 rebounds? (Wilt in the 1962 season when blocked shot statistics were not kept). We will never accurately know how many shots Wilt blocked. Oh, by the way in 1967 and 68, Wilt was a league leader in assists. Did MJ ever score 100 points in a game? How many times did MJ score more than 60 points in a game? MJ led the league in scoring in consecutive seasons for 10 years but he did this in an NBA that eventually expanded into 30 teams vs. when Wilt played and there were only 8 teams.”

  1. School that young fool “Cap.” He knows that if it wasn’t for Mike, we’d never know who HE was. Ask Scotty has he ever heard of the Big O? He only averaged a triple-double for a season, and he played point guard. Scotty is a perfect example of a guy who played for money and not the love of the game.

    • Yep, Scottie just hating on Mike, and it’s hard to say who’s the best of all times anyway…
