      Wilt and Kareem were basically from 2 different successive generations. I remember a few of us were out playing a bit of basketball in the alley on the garage hoop at age 10 in about 1971 or 1972. At some point a neighbor boy 3 years older than us came out to join us. The talk soon drifted to the current NBA scene. I asked the older guy who was better, Wilt or Kareem. I  will never forget the answer that he gave me, in a serious tone. 'It all depends on what you think.'    Any  of the 3 teams that had a chance to have either player on their roster, at any point in their career, was lucky indeed.

      I saw him play basketball once in 1969-1970 season. His Lakers were playing the Atlanta Hawks at the old Alexander Memorial coliseum. Saw him many times on television with the 76ers and later the Lakers. I always thought that there was a discernible gap between his abilities and all other players he played against.

      And he was a huge T&F fan Dan John mentions him as a keen spectator at one of his discus competitions very cool story he would have bern a great decathlete Terrific talent Liam

      My oldest son passed along this video comparing the basketball talent of Kareem and Wilt, but I couldn't help changing the conversation to T&F. With little practice, Wilt (as noted in the film) excelled in the 400, shot and high jump---imagine what that frame could have accomplished in the discus; and, w/ practice, terrific numbers in the decathlon.
