The Phat 5 have produced 3 of the top 4 All-Time leading scorers in NBA history. ( 1 )Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 38,387 points, ( 2 ) Karl Malone 36, 928 points ( 3 ) Michael Jordan 32,292 points, and ( 4 ) Wilt Chamberlain 31,419 points. Jabbar ( UCLA ), Jordan ( N.Carolina ), and Chamberlain ( Kansas ). Karl Malone is the only one not to win a NBA Championship and the only one not to attend a Phat 5 program. Wilt Chamberlain ( Kansas ) is the only man in NBA history to score 100 points in a NBA game. Michael Jordan ( UNC ) led the NBA in scoring 10 times, a record that may never be broken. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ( UCLA ) is the only player in NCAA history to win the NCAA Tournament MVP award 3 times.
The Phat 5 players have been major influences in the NBA as players, coaches, and executives. A Phat 5 player who's considered a NBA Lottery pick will have a longer career in the NBA than players who didn't attend a Phat 5 program. Now that's Dunkadelic!!!!!
