did anyone ever see him play

is anyone here old enough to have seen maurice stokes play or have heard stories from other relatives about him. I am wondering if they exagerate his quickness and shooting esc . was he really able to get a rebound and dribble all the way down and lay it in as jack twyman said in They Cleared The Lane was he as good as the books such as They cleared the lane and tall tales suggest they also constantly say how he was a great jumpshooter but yet on basketball reference it states that he shot in the 30s percentage wise was it a perticular shot like a jump shot that hurt his persentage or was he just more of a passer and rebounder more than anything.

i guess what im really

i guess what im really searching for though is the answer to one question how dominant was he inside and was his jumpshot good as i stated above. on sports hollywood it says where he ranked certain years in assists and rebounds but it never really states what caused the less than average shooting percentage

first of all joe fulks and

first of all joe fulks and mikan was before his time and other than cousy and dolph schayes no hall of famers from maurices days or beyond have shot in the 30s percentage wise and out of those 3 stokes was the lowest and probably the most talented despite that

despite these facts though

despite these facts though stokes and cousy are two of the 20 greatest of alltime if stokes had full career every player has a weakness and lebrons is that hes not good enough to win without two other superstars on his team well no i guess bosh isnt my mistake

the answer to this question

the answer to this question has to be someone without the last name stokes schayes or cousy and a hall of famer that started their career 1950 or later

How the hell did Wilt play

How the hell did Wilt play 48.5 minutes a game in 1961-1962? I mean, it takes an awful lot of overtimes to get over 48. And he did play 80 games that season, so how the hell is that possible?

Okay, after taking a trip to google, I found that the Philly Warriors, played 5 one OT games, a 2OT game, and a 3OT game. I am assuming that OTs were also 5 minutes back than so using mental math, I believe Wilt sat 10 minutes the WHOLE season. Using the above link, Id like someone to confirm that, but that is crazy. Brian Scalabrine sits more in the first 10:01 of every game than Wilt did that whole season.
