Even serial fabricators like Bill Simmons have acknowledged that Wilt Chamberlain is the GOAT in the regular reason, but basketball scribes of his ilk have attempted to minimize Wilt's greatness by claiming that the Big Dipper shrunk in the playoffs. Most of the arguments lack context and ignore several important facts.
1) Wilt has the highest T.O.P. in post-season history. The T.O.P. is Total Offensive Production and combines points, rebounds, and assists. Wilt's T.O.P. (e.g., 22.5 points, 24.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists) in the post-season is 51.2 which is the highest in NBA history. Wilt is the ONLY player in NBA history with a T.O.P. of 50 or more.
2) Wilt led the league in scoring in his first 7 seasons and led his team to the playoffs in 6 of those 7 seasons. In 6 post-season appearances, Wilt averaged 32.8 points, 26.6 rebounds, and shot .505 from the field in a league that shot .426 in that time span. No player in NBA history had a post-season averaging 32 points and 26 rebounds, yet Wilt averaged that over the course of 6 post-seasons.
3) Wilt won his 1st NBA title in his 8th season. In 7 post-season appearances, Wilt averaged 30.4 points, 27.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and shot .515 from the field. No NBA player ever had a post-season averaging 30 points, 27 rebounds, and 4.5 assists, yet Wilt averaged that over the course of 7 post-seasons.
4) Wilt is ranked 5th all-time with 9 triple-doubles in the post-season. Wilt has more triple-doubles in the post-season than any center in history.
5) Wilt outscored and outrebounded Bill Russell in 8 post-season series.
6) Wilt outplayed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 7 of 11 post-season games. In the 1971 Western Conference Finals, Wilt averaged 22.0 points and 18.8 rebounds, and held Kareem to a FG % of .481. In the last 4 games (e.g., games 3-6) of the 1972 Western Conference Finals, Wilt blocked 33 shots and held Kareem to a FG % of .414.
7) Wilt averaged 24.4 points, 26.6 rebounds, and shot .626 from the field in 9 Game Sevens.
8) Wilt averaged 27.0 points and 26.1 rebounds in 35 "must-win" or clinching games, while opposing centers averaged 14.5 points. In those 35 games, Wilt's teams were 24-11.
9) Wilt faced Hall of Fame centers in 105 of 160 post-season games and he was never outrebounded in 29 post-season series.
10) Wilt is the only player to have a 20/20/.600 stat line in the NBA Finals. In the 1970 NBA Finals, Wilt averaged 23.2 points, 24.1 rebounds, and shot .625 from the field.
