Default Wilt`s Revenge

Kiki Vandeweghe explains how a 50-year-old Wilt Chamberlain, playing in a gym with NBA All-Stars much younger than he, got revenge after being dunked on.

I don't like hearing old stories like this, you can pretty much exaggerate as much of it as you want cause no one can prove you wrong.

Speaking of mythical Wilt stories, I have this in a random text file. Dunno where I got it from or if it's even true.

Quote:
Here's another story about Wilt playing a pick up game at UCLA in the summer days of early 1980s, from coach Larry Brown:

"Magic Johnson used to run the games," Brown recalled, "and he called a couple of chintzy fouls and a goaltending on Wilt. So Wilt said: 'There will be no more layups in this gym,' and he blocked every shot after that. That's the truth, I saw it. He didn't let one of Magic's shots get to the rim." Chamberlain would have been in his mid-40s at the time.

Wilt is a myth in the basketball world. All his so called records and amazing feats never seem to have been caught on tape.

Wilt is a ghost story basketball players tell each other when camping, right? Sorta like a really promiscuous Kaiser Soze.

Wilt always looked like he could still play even at the All-Star game where they did the 50 Greatest players he looked like he could easily give 20+ minutes off the bench, so these stories dont really surprise me that much. He was that amazing.
