If he was averaging those numbers today he'd be 11th in scoring and 10th in rebounding.

Guys that Tall...Below 6`6 ft Playing Powerforward Really is a Load To Big To Take on the Knees and Back...Especially. The Strange thing is that Larry Johnson Used To Take Care of His Body Greatly but Charles Never Really Did Untill Late in his Career...Yet He Still Outlasted Him. Had Charles Taken Care of His Body He Would Have Probably Produced More Ages 33-36 His Last Years as a Non All Star.
