Basketball Player

The Resume

Why he might be annoying:

    To make room for him, the Warriors traded Wilt Chamberlain.
    He was overshadowed by Chamberlain and Bill Russell throughout his career.
    He never won an NBA title.
    In a twist of cruel fate, the Warriors won the title the year after they traded him.

Why he might not be annoying:

    Many basketball enthusiasts say his defense was better than Chamberlain's and his offense better than Russell's.
    He made an NBA record 18 rebounds in a single quarter, a figure that nowadays is tough to do for a game.
    He was the first player to record a quadruple-double in one game (double figures in points, rebounds, assists and blocked shots).
    He was selected one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History (1996).
    After he retired, he opened a barbecue restaurant.
