Default Re: Wilt Chamberlain free throw dunks:

Wilt played all summer with us at UCLA around 1980 or 1981. He was in tremendous shape and could dominate younger players even then. After we had run full court for a couple of hours, a few of us were shooting around. My former college teammate David Greenwood was giving Wilt a hard time about his stats and telling him, 'You know, you could never score 100 points in today's game, the competition was weak when you played.' Wilt decided he wanted to play some two-on-two. It was David, who played for the Bulls, and the Piston's Roy Hamilton (my boss at Fox Sports) against me and Wilt. On the first couple of possessions David scored and really turned up the trash talking. Wilt was really fired up now. He pulled me to the side, put his arm around me, and told me to not shoot the ball, just pass it to him, every time. Of course, I did what I was told. Wilt proceeded to DUNK, that's right DUNK the next 10 straight times right in Greenwood's grill. He would either back him down or establish position real close to the hoop. I'd feed him, he'd jump, turn in mid-air and smash - one of the most impressive basketball moments I have ever witnessed. After we had won the game, Wilt didn't say a word, just left the gym. True story! - KBLAZE

I have heard this exact same story before.YEARS AGO.
