Oscar Robertson, for all of his talent, is a very bitter man who dislikes giving credit to other players (e.g. Maravich, Jordan, etc).

I wouldn't read too much into his words.

For example, here is Oscar's take on the greatest player of all-time.

Oscar Robertson: “Who do I think was the greatest? This might shock you: Elgin Baylor. He did so many great things. Nobody could guard him, playing in the forward spot. I'd love to see some of today's greats playing against Elgin. They couldn't guard him. Nobody could.”

He changes his mind regularly.

Oscar is 100% correct. Pistol Pete is one of the most overrated players in NBA history. He didn't make teammates better, they hated playing with him, was selfish, and all his teams lost for the most part. Did his college team even qualify for the NCAA tournament? His game didn't lead to wins very often.
