No, he wasn't a chucker. His FG% was right around the league average, unlike Iverson.

Meanwhile, Iverson is ranked 36th on this list, whereas Fulks has yet to receive a vote (until now) despite leading the league in scoring and winning the first BAA/NBA championship.

I strongly recommend reading this article about him: http://justicebillcunningham.wordpre.../07/joe-fulks/

There are numerous others on the internet, but that's perhaps the best.

He is surely the most overlooked superstar in NBA history.

Some quotes about Fulks:

“He was a great, great player,” says Hall of Fame coach Red Auerbach. “He could shoot them any way, from any place.”

The World Book Encyclopedia reported years later that “the one-handed shot was the most popular shot in basketball until Joe Fulks popularized the jump shot . . . it became the most popular shot in basketball and greatly increased scoring.”

“If it hadn’t been for Joe,” Hall of Famer and former Warrior Paul Arizin put it, “I don’t think pro basketball would have made it those first few years.”

Fulks's first pro coach, Eddie Gottlieb, said "Joe was one of the game's pioneers. He had the greatest assortment of shots I've ever seen in basketball -- then, now or who knows when."

Walt Bellamy!

He is ranked #51 behind Steve Nash & Dwyane Wade on SLAMs top 500 players ever in 2011.

So i would guess its safe to say he is at least #99 ??? No? He sure dropped better numbers than at least 70 players on this list and in his prime dropped numbers only a few top 10 players could....

Look, I'm not saying he belongs here, but when you say he has better numbers than 70 others, it just isn't true. Or that his prime is as good as the Top 10. Teams nearly attempted 120 FGA per game in the 60's, while the league right now is averaging around 85 FGA per game.

Weird that Fulks never received a single vote in all the previous 97 threads, yet is leading in this one all of a sudden.

that's actually a very interesting vote...I've seen his name before but I just looked into him briefly

in addition to those two championship runs, he played on two other teams that went to the Finals:

74 Bucks - 19-7-3 on 49%
79 Bullets - 23-7-6 on 47%

seems like he was the real deal...he has my vote

Alright. Fulks is still up though, by only 1 now.
That is an impressive '79 run too.

What's the justification for Bob Dandridge over Joe Fulks?

Did Dandridge ever lead his own team to a championship? Did he ever lead the league in scoring (let alone 3 times)?

Did he help change the game of basketball? Fulks did.

Fulks was the BAA/NBA alpha dog for three years.

I can't speak for Deuce, but for me it was the shot clock issue (Fulks last played in 54)

Dandridge did spend half of his career in a split league, but it seems he was essentially the same player pre- and post-merger (though I'd defer to somebody who watched him play extensively if they felt otherwise)
