Default If Bill Russell made one more lay-up per quarter

What if Bill Russell cared about stats and had a time machine?

What if he cared what uninformed people thought of his career and decided to take 2 more shots a quarter and on average make one of them. Or to be more fair, make 44% of those shots?

Now this would probably cost his team a few games here and there. Let's say it costs them 3 titles too. Now he has eight rings, but his career ppg average is 22 and he has a peak season of over 26 ppg. He averages over 20ppg in 11 of 13 seasons and over 25 three times.

Is he the greatest player of all-time in the opinions of the uniformed?

Is it as simple as one lay-up per quarter?

Default Re: If Bill Russell made one more lay-up per quarter

guy 2-peats in the NCAA as teams best scorer, and wins a gold as U.S. teams best scorer, then goes on to play a different role in the NBA cause the Celtics needed something different and 8-peats wins 5 MVP's, 2-peats as a player-coach, and all in all wins 11 championships out of 13 seasons. Even had a finals series where he set a still standing record for field goal accuracy. Guy did whatever it took to win but ISH thinks he should have put up more scoring $tat$ (at the cost of titles) in order to be considered a valid GOAT candidate

I haven't even seen mescaline since GHW Bush was in office.

I'm old enough to be your Dad and if you're Mom used to be pretty I probably am.

Career 44% shooting as a C. 15 PPG. If he scored as much as you're saying, what is he? Sub 30%?

Explain to me why that makes it easier to win titles as oppose to harder (which it obviously does) and I'll give you a cookie.
