Wilt Chamberlain Rumors
There’s been a recent groundswell of support to change the logo’s silhouette from West to Bryant. Frazier, during MSG Network’s telecast of the Knicks’ 109-90 win over the Pistons, proposed a logo that would feature a bunch of greats, dating to the original big man, George Mikan. “First of all if you just use one guy you’re embarrassing a lot of other guys,” said Frazier, who led the Knicks to two NBA championships. “I would start with George Mikan. What about George Mikan? Without George Mikan these guys would not be around. What about Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell? They saved the league at that point. That brought us to the 70s.

Zion Williamson has been compared to Blake Griffin since his explosive collegiate season at Duke. The two are almost inarguably the best dunkers to enter the NBA in recent memory, and it’s only fitting that they will now be listed together in the league’s record books. On Friday, Williamson scored his 1,000th NBA point. He became the fastest player to achieve the feat since Blake Griffin did it during his rookie year. Both took 44 games to reach 1,000 points, and are the only active players to get there so quickly. The all-time record is 28 games, held by Wilt Chamberlain during his 1959-60 rookie season. The points, predictably, came on a dunk.
