Kareem is the Hank Aaron of the NBA. Still the all-time points leader and far, far ahead of all of the players who are discussed as the "greatest of all time".
6 titles (same as Jordan)
6 MVPs (most of all time, Jordan/Russell with 5)
19x All Star
3rd most rebounds all time (Wilt and Russell 1-2)
Never, ever, ever discussed as the greatest of all time. Not really even at his own position!
He wasn't dominant? He was 88-2 in college. The year before he was drafted, the Bucks were 27-55. His first year, they went 56-26 (2nd best in the conf) and in year 2 they had 66 wins including 20 straight. Should i go on?
Kareem didn't work hard enough on defense and really tried hard only during the playoffs.Kareem. Top 3 player of all time, regardless of position. Absurdly underappreciated.
