when oscar played people were not jacking up long range shots nearly every trip down the court causing longer rebounds. to me this is not even a question.

same logic goes for most stats people use in other VS debates.

But they were jacking shots from 15 feet in the 60's, afaik. That would still inflate their rebound numbers as shown by Wilt and Bill Russell grabbing 20-50 boards a night.

League average pace in 1961-1962, season when Robertson averaged a tripled-double (and Wilt had 50 ppg): 126.2

League average this season: 97.3
Last season: 96.4



That's a 30 possession difference. Big, BIG difference between the past era and today.
Even the league average FGA in that 60s season had 1500 more than this season.

Them classic players jacked waaay more shots.

I like how the league back then was basically a combination of a track meet and shooting drills, and only one team decided to think about defense resulting in 8 straight championships or 11 c'hips in 13 years.
