Re: Wilt Chamberlain free throw dunks:
jongib369 > Well, the Howard dunk is an interesting case. It's an alley-oop, making it more difficult, and it's clear that Howard is capable of completing an actual dunk on this play instead of throwing it in, he just didn't do it perfectly under pressure.
Howard and Wilt have very different bodies though. But if someone were to tell me JaVale McGee would sometimes dunk his free throws in high school, I would believe them (and not just because of the whole brain issue). What he pulled off at the dunk contest was crazy, and he's a poor man's Wilt athletically (even disregarding strength).
