Kareem's highest scoring seasons EVER came in Chamberlain's last 3 years...when Jabbar was just a "skinny kid", yet he was 23,24,25 years old at the time......

You realize this blows up everything you've said? The free throw line is 15 feet from the backboard. If he could broad jump 22 feet, he should be able to dunk without steps.

The farthest broad jump I could find in the NFL combine is Calvin Johnson with 11' 7". You expect me to believe someone almost doubled that?

Wilt long-jumped 22'8" as a PR... no it wasn't standing it was running. Don't let misinformation kill everything.

He placed 1st place in the Philadelphia city-league high-jump his sophomore year in HS with a jump of 5'10"

He placed 1st place in the Philadelphia city-league high-jump his senior year in HS with a jump of 6'2

He also had a PR of 46' 2.5" as a freshman at KU Relays for the triple jump (ineligible to place however, due to age)
He competed in High Jump (ineligible) as a freshmen for 6'4.75"

He Triple Jumped 45' 9" as a sophomore for 3rd place at KU Relays
High Jumped 6'6 to tie for first place.

High Jumped 6'6.25 at Drake Relays for first place

High Jumped 6'5 at Kansas State Big-Seven tournament and won first place

And his Junior season:
High Jumped 6'6.75" at Kansas State Big-Eight indoor track tournament and tied for first place

When Wilt's athleticism claims get out of hand it causes people to think "none of it" was true. Don't belive the 22 foot standing long jump obviously. But don't dismiss the ACTUAL accountable events that happened either.

22' feet isn't very far for the long jump. UCLA has a wide receiver who can break 24'

I can't find any reliable sources about his long jumps but many places claim he could triple jump over 50'. Mike Connelly Sr. owns the world record for triple jump at 58' 3.25". He was able to 2 handed slam from 5' 7" behind the free throw line with a full court running start. I'm not saying Wilt wasn't a beast, I'm sure he could do something similarly impressive. But lets not go and believe everything.

22'8" is very impressive for a teenager.

It isn't worthy for a big Track school like KU though, Hence Wilt didn't compete in the long jump in the NCAA - only in HS.

I don't care what other sources claim. I have KU and Philadelphia city-league info that comes straight from that time period. Not sources from the 2000's that have been skewed by 50 years time. It's like the telephone game, the information passes enough times through peoples mouths and by the end of the line it's not the same as it used to be.

The 2011 California state champion long jumper hit 23' 4" in prelims and won with a distance of 22' 3.25". Wilt was definitely a great athlete but still on the same level as great athletes of today.
