He is always at the hoop to score and scoring 100 points is the best nobody will ever do better I PROMISE

A lot like Shaq, but Wilt was taller, stronger, faster, and a MUCH better jumper.

I believe it's quite obvious.

100 point game

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Kareem 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.

The first Sasquatch in the NBA

Shaq is better than the dream. That Greg guy shouldn't even be on here. Kareem and Wilt are better though.

Just 11 percent?

Hakeem Olajuwon Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon, formerly known as Akeem Olajuwon, is a Nigerian-American retired professional basketball player.

Greg Slaughter

7 footer in the Philippine Basketball... - charven

Come from University of the Visayas. 2 Times CESAFI MVP Player. Proud Visayanians. - charven

Slaughter was the starting center for the Sinag Pilipinas team that won the 2011 SEA games and the 2011 SEABA tournament which was the qualifying tournament for the 2011 FIBA Asia Championship. He was also a part the national team pool in preparation for the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship held in the Philippines but did not make it to the final 12 roster. He was again invited to the pool that will train to compete in both the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain and the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, but he declined. - charven

Plays in the Philippines? No offense but he needs to be taken off. Basketball is an American thing - bobbythebrony

Artis Gilmore

What a great player and human being; all 7 feet, 2 inches of him [legitimate height! ].
Had the bad timing to have his potential Jacksonville college team's NCAA Final Four championship bid squashed by John Wooden's unbeatable UCLA machine.
Then he got overshadowed by the NBA/ABA rivalry and then merger.
Then unfortunately played against the old Wilt and the young Kareem, who were of course better, but outside of them, almost nobody else who ever played was better, and Artis would EASILY be the best center in the NBA if he played today.

David Robinson David Maurice Robinson is an American former professional basketball player, who played center for the San Antonio Spurs in the National Basketball Association for his entire career.
Patrick Ewing Patrick Aloysius Ewing (born August 5, 1962) is a Jamaican-American retired Hall of Fame basketball player and current head coach of the Georgetown University men's basketball team.

Deserves to be much higher on this list

Steven Adams Steven Funaki Adams is a New Zealand professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association.

Steven Adams is the goataroni

He's good

Arvydas Sabonis

What a shame he spent his best years playing for the USSR national team. By the time he got to the NBA, he was old and nearly crippled, but as a young man, he was possibly a match for even Kareem and Wilt.

Manute Bol

Manute Bol was Mr. Tall

Karl-Anthony Towns Karl-Anthony Towns Jr. is a Dominican-American professional basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association. He played college basketball for the Kentucky Wildcats.
