Bill Russell was great, but he was no Wilt Chamberlain

I think that Bill Russell's championships have somewhat inflated his greatness. I know many may disagree with that notion, however, I ask this. Could Russell have performed on the overall level that Chamberlain did on a day to day basis? Chamberlain showed near the end of his career that he could play like Russell out of his prime.
