Was Bill Russelll better than Wilt Chamberlain?

No: despite that Russel had more championships.

Sorry ... Russell had ZERO championships. His Celtics team had 11 championships.

Nobody was better than Wilt. John Wooden himself stated that had Wilt been fortunate enough to have Russell's supporting cast and Red Auerbach as coach, Wilt's team would have won all those championships.

Did Wilt Chamberlain win against the New York Knicks when he scored 100 points?

Wilt Chamberlain's Philadelphia Warriors beat the New York Knicks 169-147 in Chamberlain's 100 point game on March 2, 1962. Wilt scored 41 points in the first half, and then got hot. With almost eight minutes left he broke his own record of 78 points, and his teammates obliged the fans' chants of "Give it to Wilt" by feeding the big man on every possession. In a wild finish that included the Knicks fouling other Warriors to deny Wilt the ball, and Warriors fouling Knicks to get more possessions, Wilt scored his hundredth point on a slam dunk with 46 seconds left. Wilt finished the season averaging more than 50 points, 25 rebounds and 48 minutes per game. The game was played in Hershey Pennsylvania, where the Warriors occasionally played in order to draw additional fans. Only 4,000 fans attended the game.

Would Bill Russell be dominant now in the NBA?

In my opinion, Bill Russell would be fairly dominant, but not one of the most dominating players. With skilled players like Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, and Dwight Howard, Russell would not be as dominant but still effective.

Come on...that's like asking if The Beatles would be able to get any

concert gigs if they were around today. Bill Russell understood the

dynamics of TEAMWORK better than any athlete who ever lived. He

had the greatest impact on the game of basketball than anyone

who ever played. He is the reason for the term "Celtics mystique."

Boston never came close to winning a championship before The

Great Man arrived (begining in the 1956-'57 season) and the were virtually unbeatable (eight championships in a row, 11 in 13 years)

during Emperor Russell's reign. The year after Mr. Russell retired,

the Celtics failed to make the playoffs. Bill Russell is still light years

ahead of anyone. No one has come along to even come close to

him defensively, and no one ever will. Could Bill Russell dominate the NBA today? Could Picasso sell his

paintings today? Beethoven compose ? COME ON!!
