Even though I am from Philly, I am picking Russell. Way better team player with better awareness of the court. And 11 championships mean something, right?

I would likely choose Wilt of Jabbar and Russell. But Kareem and Bill Walton are my two all-time favorite basketball players (both are very well-rounded and eccentric gentlemen, which I find appealing).

I'd have to go with Chamberlain, despite Russell's championships and Kareem's longevity (and smarts). People forget what a great athlete Wilt was. He wasn't just a good basketball player because he was tall. He excelled in track and field in high school, both as a high jumper and as a state champion quarter miler.

Kareem and Walton are among my very most favorite players as well.

As to the question:

1) Wilt

2) Kareem

3) Russell

RE: Russell chamberlin or jabbar?
I've got to go with Russell and his 11 championships. He did what was needed when face to face with Wilt.

Two players who get overlooked are Moses Malone and Hakeem Alajuwon. Moses took "4 guys from Petersburg" when he was with the Rockets and nearly beat the Celtics in '81. Then he took Philly to the championship. Moses is the only player who can compete with Chamberlin as a scorer and offensive rebounder. Hakeem had the all around game. He could score with 4 players hanging on him. He was one of the top rebounders. He was one of the top shot blockers. And he was among the leader in steals. He just had incredible athleticism from his upbringing as a soccer goalee. He got to the finals when Ralph Sampson was playing and he got back to back championshps with the Rockets with a bunch of little reknown teammates.

I don't think either of those guys get overlooked, both were awesome and IMO universally recognized as such.

But they just don't belong in the top three of all-time centers. Just like Ewing, Robinson and Shaq don't either.

To me, that's clearly Wilt, Kareem, and Russell.
