This was the second (all-star)game between the NBA and the ABA superstars and was called "Supergame II" and took place in Nassau Coliseum at Uniondale, N.Y. on May 25, 1972!!!

The final score was 106-104 for the NBA stars!!!
The NBA team wasn't consisted by all the great players of that time(for example Kareem, West, Baylor and others didn't play) and I suppose it was the same for the ABA too!
The MVP of the game was Bob Lanier(back-up of Wilt)!
A remarkable note is that, this was the only game in history that Wilt and Artis faced each other!!!!!

Very interesting that they were close games, which speaks a lot about the top talent of the ABA.

what a battle between the 7'1" 275 Wilt and the 7'2" and considered the strongest man to ever play the game in Artis Gilmore down low in the paint. That's the closest thing you will ever see to a collision imo.

Gilmore was considered the Chamberlain of ABA.
I don't think though, he was considered, stronger than Wilt.

Wilt out played Gilmore in there.

Indeed, although you can't say it by just seeing at the points production!!
Wilt - 6
Artis - 14

*Most of his points were against Lanier!

Artis was the first really physical C in the post, a predecessor to Shaq you could say. Not stronger than Wilt but more willing to use his power to dominate.

ABA only had 2 real stars that would have made huge impact in the NBA at their peak, Erving and Gilmore.

Don't forget the Iceman, Barry and Malone (he first played in the ABA)

Btw, i'm not sure Gilmore was more willing to use his power than Wilt.

Iceman and Malone were in their primes in the NBA and just young players in the ABA. Barry also spent much of his prime in the NBA so we know how good he would be. I was talking about players who spent all or most of their prime in the ABA.

Gilmore was probably the first power player in history. He was pretty intimidating on both ends of the court but his problem was lack of motivation and poor rosters once he came to the NBA.

Diamantidis is GOAT

Wilt only scored 6 points.........Before I knew this I would bet that Wilt scored at least 15 points in every single basketball game he had played in his life; whether the game was serious or not.

Well Lanier wasn't no little guy either at 6'11" 265.  They say him and Artis had some battles when Artis was on the Bulls.

I think there was a game against Thurmond where he scored... 0. Lol! He had his share of single-digit point games.
