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


The Top Ten

1 Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Michael 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

2 Lebron James Lebron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.

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

LeBron is too undersized to handle Wilt.

Wilt is much faster than Lebron so nope.

3 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 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.

Sadly, Kareem and Wilt faced each other only one time before Wilt suffered a terrible knee injury, had major surgery, and missed almost a whole season. When Wilt came back, he was never the same, although he still defended prime Kareem better than any other player, and famously was the only player who repetitively was able to block prime Kareem's sky hook.

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

Kareem is the only man with even a chance at defeating Wilt (assuming it's a 1v1) But Wilt would probably still win. - hiphopgod

6 Clyde Drexler Clyde Drexler
7 Bill Russell Bill 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.

8 Julius Erving Julius Erving Julius Winfield Erving II, commonly known by the nickname Dr. J, is an American retired basketball player who helped popularize a modern style of play that emphasizes leaping and playing above the rim.
