Top 10 NBA Players That Would Have the Best Chance of Defeating Wilt Chamberlain

The Top TenXW

1Michael JordanMichael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

Michael Jordan would not beat Chamberlain. Michael would score some jumpshots and that's it. The Big Dipper literally towered everyone in his way not only because he's a 7 footer but also cause Chamberlain played above the rim and recorded a higher vertical leap than "Air Jordan". It would be interesting to see these two battle, but not even MJ could beat Chamberlain

2Lebron JamesLeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Though Lebron has 3 Jordan has 6, Mike was way too undersized to compete against the 6 foot 8 260 pound freight train we call Lebron James. Lebron can play all 5 positions fluently, Jordan was more of a guard. Not dissing mike but he was just too small.

Questionable whether LeBron is faster than the young Wilt. He was also a star on his college track team, and because he did not finish college, NBA rules at the time required he was not yet eligible, so he had to play for a year on the Harlem Globetrotters, and often played point guard, leading the fast break. Wilt is the consensus fastest 7-footer in history, a small amount of footage from his Globetrotter and college days survives, and can be viewed on YouTube, its pretty amazing. Most of the NBA footage of him is as an older man, playing at a muscular 315 pounds or so [after knee surgery], but his game had changed from his younger days. When Wilt appeared as the bad guy in the movie

Wilt is much faster than Lebron so nope.

3Kareem Abdul-JabbarKareem Abdul-Jabbar is an American retired professional basketball player who played 20 seasons in the National Basketball Association for the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers.

Assuming prime-age vs. prime-age, only Kareem would have a chance against Wilt, and really not even him.Young Wilt was so other-worldly, his numbers defy belief even today, and hence folks may incorrectly tend to under-rate his opponents.

Kareem schooled Wilt when they went against each other in a regular season game and Wilts long frame couldn't handle the Skyhook aka the best move in NBA history

Only a chance if they'd slept with the same women... - Billyv

6Clyde Drexler
7Bill Russell

Bill Russell has 11 NBA championships, more than any other player. He is also considered the best defender in NBA history, and is the exact same barefoot height as Dwight Howard and Hakeem Olajuwon at 6-9.5. Bill Russell has said hundreds of times that even he could not come close to stopping Wilt, but Russell was on much better teams, and basketball is a team sport.

8Julius Erving
9Bill Walton
10Nate Thurmond

Nate would give Wilt all he could handle, a shame nobody knows about him any more, but he was better than any current NBA center.
