Walt Frazier, an icon of the New York knicks, participated in the persistent discussion on GOAT, adding a different name than the usual debate between Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
Frazier, 75, told the New York Post this week that his best basketball player ever is Wilt Chamberlain.
“I always ask what the criteria are when you say the greatest ever … If it’s Superman, we’re talking about Wilt Chamberlain. I also have Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the top scorer of all time. The versatility of Oscar Robertson. Bill Russell’s victories. Those are the four boys. Actually I would say Wilt Chamberlain because when we played in the 70s and flew in economy, you crossed the airport and people said ‘Are you a Globetrotter or Wilt Chamberlain?’. This is all that people knew. I find it hard to say Mike. Mike is definitely there with those guys but, if I had to choose, I would choose Chamberlain. “
