A lot like Shaq, but Wilt was taller, stronger, faster, and a MUCH better jumper.
I believe it's quite obvious.
He is always at the hoop to score and scoring 100 points is the best nobody will ever do better I PROMISE
2 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.
Of course 7 foot and 2 inches man
Kareem is just amazing
5th best player ever
3 Shaquille O'Neal
Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal, nicknamed Shaq, is a retired American professional basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA. He is known for his fun, friendly personality, and is one of the most beloved athletes of all time.
Shaq is better than the dream. That Greg guy shouldn't even be on here. Kareem and Wilt are better though.
Shaq is 7.1 feet tall
Just 11 percent?
Shaq should be higher than ming and Hakeem 4 titles 6th on the all time scoring list during the 2000s he was an unstoppable think if he had stayed with la

6 Greg Slaughter
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.
Plays in the Philippines? No offense but he needs to be taken off. Basketball is an American thing
7 footer in the Philippine Basketball...
Come from University of the Visayas. 2 Times CESAFI MVP Player. Proud Visayanians.
7 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.

14 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.
