You do realize those guys only played with Gretzky for part of his career, right? And that when they were all playing together, he badly outscored them?

Woah, and then Gretzky played really well in Canada Cup tournaments? Playing with stacked rosters...
And Gretzky outscored every teammate on those stacked rosters and outscored every opponent on the stacked Soviet roster every single time.

There are lots of people who would take Russell over Chamberlain because of playoffs or clutch play or whatever. Nobody would ever take another player over Gretzky because of playoff performances (those who pick others over Gretzky do so because of all-round game or looking better).
