  • Wilt Chamberlain Track and Field Footage and Questions

    The start of this video has some footage of Wilt competing in various track and field events and some claims about how good he was. I've heard of some of those numbers before and was curious if they have been verified.

      Tres cool, agreed!
      I remember hearing he HJ'ed 6-11.
      But his BB was best--no one's come close to his 100 point game!
      Not to mention his count of 10,000 women he took to bed!
      A larger than life figure, in every way!
      The Usain Bolt of the NBA!

          I am pretty sure he claimed it was 20,000

            You're right!
            (My apologies, Wilt!)
            But that 100 point game was maybe more amazing, as there wasn't the 3 point shot back then!
            Can you imagine what he would've scored if the 3 pointer was around then!!

              Wiki sez it was 20,000.

                100 points likely

                  I’m wondering what he could have done as a HJer with the flop and modern pits.

                    Or 94 points, after missing a few 3 pointers which otherwise should have been driven to the basket for a close-range 2-pointer.

                      Very true.

                        Of course his team mates might have been more inclined to take outside shots giving him fewer opportunities to score.

                          I am not sure Wilt ever made a 25-foot shot in his career.

                            Those aren’t game shots, but he could score from outside.

                              I think it's been mentioned in other basketball threads that, had Wilt played in today's game, he'd have been much more inclined to shoot from the outside and he'd have been better at it than he needed or wanted to be during his career. He may not have been good at it but he'd play that way likely.
