Default Wilt is the best athlete in NBA history

And it's not close. Sorry mj and Bron fans. Wilt could jump higher and further than both even though he was 7 foot plus. He was also way stronger and as fast or faster.

Or at least the best athlete for his size. Although David Robinson was pretty damn amazing too.

Nah. Wilt was an elite college track athlete. He put up elite numbers in sprinting, jumping and throwing. Strength wise it's widely known he could bench 500 lbs and deadlift even more. He really was a freak of nature

LeBron still wins, he is faster has better reaction times, much better endurance and can jump higher, we barely even have any footage of Wilt but LeBron on the other hand

There's tons of footage of Wilt looking like a clearly superior athlete... despite barely any of his career existing on film.

Wilt was a mix of David Robinson and Karl Malone in his prime athletically. He is the GOAT athlete IMO.
