Top Ten NBA Players of the '60sEpicJake The 60s was full of history, but only 10 players can be in the top ten. Let's count up the best NBA players of the 1960s.
The Top Ten
It was a difficult decision to decide if Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell should take the number one spot. Personally, I think Wilt is number one because he set more records, such as the 100 point game. - EpicJake
Don't forget his 60/40 game, with 60 points and 40 rebounds.
He also averaged 8.8 blocks per game, by far the highest in league history. Although blocks were not not an "official" stat during his playing years, they were an official stat used internally by the Philadelphia 76'ers, and they tracked blocks during all of his home games when he played for them.
When you win that many rings, you are the man! No question that he was the best. He would be a star even in this era.
He has 11 rings that cover both hands and 1 big toe which is simply amazing
