Greatest Offensive Players in NBA Historyanthonybecerra831
The Top Ten
Sorry, but simply playing for many more seasons than Wilt does not make anyone a better scorer. The average NBA career is 5 years, take any players best 5 consecutive year period vs. Wilt's, the other players look like they are in Elementary School. Double that and take the first 10 years of Wilt's career, the other players [Jordan and Kareem included] have only moved up to Middle School. Even "Grandpa" Wilt, at 315 pounds, with heavy scar tissue in his knees, late in his career, still outrebounded every other player in history. It's a testimony to Kareem and Karl Malone's longevity that they are #2 and #4 in total games played, and no coincidence that they are #1 and #2 in total points. Offense is more than longevity, and for a single game or an entire season, younger Wilt Chamberlain would have made mincemeat out of them.
Any list without Wilt at #1 in this category is wrong.
100 point game? check.
Multiple 70-point games? check.
50 point season average? check.
55 rebound game? check.
Multiple 60/40 games? check.
Its silly to have anyone in history above Chamberlain for individual offensive accomplishments.
