Wilt Chamberlain Kansas Footage [VIDEO] Surfaces, Shows 100-Point Scorer Dominating, Wilt Chamberlain is one of the most dominant forces in the history of basketball. He was a seven feet, one inch behemoth who scored mercilessly at will, even averaging 50.4 points per game in the 1961-1962 season. Now, rare footage of him at the college level has surfaced, and it is as awesome as expected.
A lithe, springy Chamberlain can be seen reaching above overmatched opponents to secure difficult entry passes into the post, navigating through three and four bodies at a time in the paint and contorting over defenders for tough looks at the rim.
Chamberlain is seen affecting the game in several ways. He viciously swats shots in the compelling video, taps rebounds out with ease, and leaps higher than the gigantic plodder some may have had in mind.
Most impressively, Chamberlain's pure speed leaps off the screen. For a man as tall as he was, he races down the court as fast as any other player on either team. The athleticism evident on film makes his gaudy career numbers easier to digest.
The other skill present in his Kansas film is deft passing, a trait he was not well-known for. As legend has it, however, Chamberlain once decided he wanted to lead the entire league in assists-so he went out and did it.
In the 1967-1968 season, Chamberlain averaged 8.6 assists per game, in addition to 24.3 points and 23.8 boards. He was a 13-time All-Star and won two titles, one with the Philadelphia 76ers in 1967, and one with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1972. He was also a seven-time scoring champion.
