The Over and Back Classic NBA podcast continues its offseason series looking at the NBA’s 50 Greatest Players in history, with a look at the career and Top 50 candidacy of ABA and NBA legend Artis Gilmore. Jason Mann, Rich Kraetsch and Professor of History at Southeast Missouri State University Adam Criblez (@AdamCriblez) discuss Gilmore's high volume/high efficiency style, his stellar defensive reputation, where he fits among centers of his era, if he's unfairly slotted behind Kareem, Moses and Wilt or if he deserves to be in the same conversation. Lastly, we discuss how much we value his ABA numbers compared with his NBA, how to properly judge ABA numbers and much more.
