Today marks thirty years since the transition of the Big Dipper, Stilt, Wilt. By the time I got hip to who he was and his contributions, he was already retired for nearly two decades and was only one of two over 30K points in the league.
Although I don't dedicate as much time and energy to basketball these days, it is quite interesting to observe the "G.O.A.T." debates (mostly under 35) among fans and some mainstream media outlets about three individuals (post 1980's, not many signs of Magic at least smfh) and Wilt doesn't appear to be anywhere in these discussions.
One wonders why though....
Asè to the late great, the God of hoops.
