That is like Kobe guarding Shaq in the post. It's a joke of an era. 6'6" - 6'8" centers

It's not so much the size of Wilt's opponents it was during a time when cherry picking and standing under the basket was ok.

Basketball in it's infancy.

When Wilt supposedly scored this many points it was a time when basketball was in it's infancy. Over the course of decades the game has been tweaked and rules have been implemented to create fair play.

Since 1978 and beyond is when the game of basketball was very similar to what it is today. The rules of past is no good in today's league. Therefore, many have accepted 81 points as the official scoring record in "modern" basketball.

Stopped reading after reading that bolded part. "all rules ... finalized."

1979-80 was the start of the "modern era".

Lin would easily hit 100 if he played a full 48 minute game like Kobe or Wilt. What they did is not impressive, really. They also relied on their athleticism and were way too arrogant to be considered "good" in terms of record-breaking achievements.

Just picture Kobe playing against centers who were raja bell's size, he'd obliterate Wilt's 100.

I don't know. As fast as the game was back than it's still impressive a Center getting 100 points without shooting threes and being a bad free throw shooter.

No, not a sin. You just stated your true opinion in a thread full of sarcasm and trolling. If you want to defend Wilt and have a quality discussion, I suggest starting a new thread about it.

The arguemant can go either way really, You can say Wilt was too big a dude for the Centers and a faster pace game, But you can say Kobe dropped those points knocking down 3's against a weak team. And I'm a Kobe fan and Wilt fan even though I never watched him play BTW.

Is It Also a Joke that a 6`4 3/4 Overweight and 33-36 Year Old Man Outplayed a Young Athletic Peek Duncan in The Late 90s?

Height is Not Everything

Lets Remember that As Far as Rebounding Championships There Are More Players In the 6`4-6`11 ft Range than 7`0 ft Plus range that Have Won Them
