Complete bullshit. Ali 1964-67 beat the best available and was peerless. Ali 1970-77 beat(or eventually beat) everyone put in front of him (except Jimmy Young, Leon Spinks). If he's overated it's because you expected a level of perfection at that point in his career that NO ONE ELSE was bringing either.
Wilt was best athlete/ BBall player of his era and then some bar none, Russel won championships and those Boston teams were like family to each other. Look at the interviews with Havlicek, Russel, Tommy Heinsohn Sam or K.C. Jones. Your answers are right there. Boston fans would not
have traded Russ for Wilt, we liked winning championships too much
. George Gervin was the greatest scorer I ever saw but I didn't want him on the Celts, I wanted The Pistol because he scored AND passed.
