  1. Neither of you has anything original to bring to the table on this topic. The Russell/Wilt debate has raged on for generations through essays, articles, books, TV specials, radio debates, live debates, and basically any other medium this country has to offer. It has been my experience through reading/listening to these same rehashed, redundant, tired arguments over my 20+ years of fandom that the basketball world is basically split down the middle on this topic. Do you really think that anything you type in this thread is going to significantly sway that community one way or the other?
  2. I never claimed that Russell was better than Wilt. I merely stated that they engaged in some historic battles during their careers. I can't imagine any self-respecting basketball historian arguing that I was wrong on this point.
  3. At least one of you just came here to "pick a fight". I really don't want to be a part of it. Have fun double-teaming Wilt's memory on the band wagon.
get over yourself - you made a claim and we disagreed, it's the internet

I still don't think either of you disagreed with the claim I made. You disagreed with the straw man you set up.
But that's just me.
