If your superstar player shoots 4-13 from the free-throw line in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, and your team lost by only 4 points (and was within a possession from tying it with under a minute left), who gets the blame? certainly not the teammate that had 42 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 assists

Michael Jordan could average upwards of 50 ppg on elite efficiency today

Dirk is the best player in the league

1 guy scoring 81 points in a game is nothing special because it was in the RS and against a bad team

Derrick Rose should play SG instead of PG

He was one of the people saying that. Others like andgar weren't saying he would do 50 but that he could do 40+ on really good efficiency (> 50%)

No one said it costed him 3-4 rings, but the guy had horrible FT-shooting performances in the finals and especially in '69..

First his team lost in game 4 in that series with 1 freaking point while Wilt choked big time from the FT-line only making 2-11 FT's..

And in game 7 his team lost with two points and Wilt again choked big time from the FT-line only making 4-13 FT's..

Wilt's Free-throw % in the '70 Finals

http://www.basketball-reference.com/...70_finals.html

I rest my case

YOU claimed that those TWO games cost Wilt 3-4 rings. As for game seven of the '70 Finals, Wilt went 1-8 in the first half...when NY led 69-42. That game was NOT decided by Wilt's poor FT shooting, but instead by the Knicks hitting almost every shot they took in the first half.

So, YOUR claim that Wilt's 4-13 FT shooting, in that game seven of the '69 Finals, and with Baylor firing blanks from the FIELD all game long (8-22), and with Wilt's COACH leaving Wilt on the bench in the last five minutes...is really the ONLY case in which it MIGHT have cost Wilt a ring.

Of course, I have long argued that Kareem and Bird's poor shooting from the FIELD in SEVERAL post-season series probably cost them a few rings, as well.
