Take note of who loosed almost everything!

Wilt Chamberlain, the Hall of Famer, has a reputation for initially exaggerating his relationships, having once stated he had slept with over 20,000 women before later retracting those claims.

It comes as no surprise that when asked how he would have performed if he had played in the 1990s, he did not back down in a 1997 interview with NBC’s Bob Costas.

Naturally, Chamberlain went overboard.

“I’m by myself with one guy when I get the ball instead of having two or three people and [Bill Russell] all on me at the same time because of the new rules, which are all slanted to help the offense,” Chamberlain remarked. “I would adore it. It would be so wonderful. 50, 60, or even 70 points in each game.”

Chamberlain serves as evidence that gamers from the 1960s and 1970s are no less critical of the game today than those from the 1980s and 1990s. The older generation seems to always believe that the old school was superior to the new one. Just have fun with any debate involving LeBron James and Michael Jordan.
