I wonder what Kareem would have done in this era.

They get paid relative to the amount of money that their sport is generating.

It's the players that people pay to see, that's why they're getting paid so much. Sheesh.

I think the last line of that was the punch line, and I think they agree with you, as do I.

You're talking about the very, very best in their industry. I would imagine that the top 300 retail insurance agents in the world make as much as players in the NBA. You can say that for a lot of industries.

Correct, they were just trying to say for the amount of b***hing that goes on for athletes getting paid so much, there isnt nearly as much b***hing for the leaders of other industries who are rackin in MUCH much more

He might be considered the GOAT if he played in this era judging by who is competition would be and the rise in publicity.

Kareem would seriously annihilate the current big men in the league.
As I've stated many times, I feel that Kareem is indeed the GOAT. I understand many don't share this belief, but to me, he was unstoppable.

Never watched either

but what were the matchups between him and The Dream like?

One-Sided? Even?

even though KAJ was winding down his career

I actually wonder about that. I think that high scoring center play has largely been legislated out of the game with soft zone defenses. I think that post players have a harder time getting the ball in the first place. Even a guy like Gasol has never been a 20ppg guy, and it's not because of a lack of skill.

I may be wrong, just thinking out loud here.
Dude.... WTF!
