100 puts 1 game
The list says "of all time", so the players do not have to be the correct age for the original dream team, just the most qualified.
Wilt "IS" the most qualified.
Just checking; did anybody else on this list ever have a 60/40 game [60 points, 40 rebounds] even in Junior High School, much less the NBA?
Didn't think so.

4 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.
Kareem is only under-rated by people who think basketball was invented in 1991, not 1891. Anybody who has been around the game for awhile knows just how great he was.
Kareem is so underrated in my top ten all-time he is 5th - 2storm
5 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.
When talking about the real dream team there is only one guy in the top 10 that is an American and played at the right time to have been a dream teamer. Hands down that is shaq. He was not a pro yet, nor was that guy from Duke that was on the dream team. It would have made much more sence to have shaq on the team then any non pro at the time.
There are some names in the top 10 that were on the dream team, so how is it they are the best players that should have been on if they were on it?!? Then you have some guys that would have been 50-60 years old. While Kareem was great he was way to old. My favorite is the grammer school aged Lebron votes. Are there really that many bron fans that think he could have won gold with his juice box in tow?
