One of the greatest rivalries in the history of the NBA, one of the most famous photographs in sports history! For the entire decade of the 1960s, centers Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics and Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers went head-to-head, with every meeting becoming a heavyweight tilt. To this day, you will be hard-pressed to find consensus on which of these Hall of Fame legends came out on top. Russell backers will point to the scoreboard: eight championships to one! Chamberlain supporters will point to better individual statistics, and his inferior supporting cast, as evidence of Wilt's overall superiority.

True to form, there isn't even a consensus on the outcome of the play captured in this image! Russell claims he blocked Chamberlain's finger roll to prevent a basket; Wilt insisted to his dying day that the ball cleared Russell's fingertips and dropped in the net for two. In any case, it's better left unknown - it makes this that much more of a conversation piece!

From one of countless sold-out Boston Garden matchup between the two legends, this poster is a classic in every way. Published exclusively in poster size for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, it is a black-and-white beauty that gives you a taste of the Hall on your very own wall! If you remember the era, you won't believe the memories this will bring back with every glance. If you are a young fan who never got a chance to see Wilt or Bill play, you will gain a true appreciation of old-school basketball from the men who revolutionized the game. One thing is for certain - no truly great sports wall-of-fame is complete without it! An amazing opportunity for basketball fans everywhere, perfect for home or office.
