Haha, people who believes all crap about Wilt are idiots, one of these moron's even posted some kind of record long jump record from 500 BC and told us about how there's no video proof of that jump so it's too much to ask to get any visual evidence regarding Wilt..

Around 500 BC the tallest person according to witnesses was some lady who was like 19 feet tall...


I'm just gonna assume right now your an atheist and don't believe any kind higher power beyond your own scope of thought limitations.

I guess Big Foot exists and so does aliens..


The footage is right there in front of your face. Wilt is head-level with the rim which indicates a 36" vertical...and that's carrying the ball with him in an in-game situation...40" rise is not out of the realm..

Michael Jordan is recorded at a 48" peak rise....you've never seen him do it in-game though....i have seen him get eye-level with the rim, that's would a take a 45-46" rise....take the ball out of the equation with no distractions i'm sure he could get a couple more inches.

40" is not impossible.

The majority of them are just different types of organisms like the Earth's animals, plants, bacteria, etc, but a few of them will have become definitely more advanced than humans.

BTW, even for Wilt standards, this thread has become excessively long, with its 255 posts (Deuce Bigalow's "posts" don't count).

What's BS about it?? It's not his standing vertical, it's his rise. If he gets eye-level with the rim, that's gonna take a rise of around 45-46".

RIM = 120 inches....at his eyes at least another 4 inches higher.

Jordan = 6'6"......124 inches - 78 inches = 46" rise....

With no ball he surely could get 48" rise.

OH gee wiz........ You people are weird as hell....

Even if it wasn't "official", to say he couldn't rise 48" is pretty ridiculous....even Julius Erving got eye-level with the rim on a dunk. Jordan isnt the only one in history to be able to do that.

What's being rejected here, that somebody could dunk from the FT line? Which is dumb cause Ibaka can do it too. Or that they used to let players run and dunk their FTs? Which is dumb but believable since dumbness has never stopped humans from implementing something.

The claim is he could do it in 3 steps, within the free throw circle area. Which is impossible.

There are claims that Bruce Lee, a 135lbs man could hold a 120lbs dumbbell in front of himself inline with the ground for 10 seconds. There are eyewitnesses, etc. I really couldn't care if 15 people say they saw it, I still wouldn't believe it. Why? Because its not possible. You have the strongest men of today who can't do it. Same logic applies to Wilt. Wilt isn't far and away better than every athlete that's ever stepped foot on the planet, and yet we have no one close that can dunk from the free throw line with 3 steps, all inside the free throw circle.

Its common sense. Nearly everything back then was romanticized to extremes and made out to seem legendary to beyond belief. If they toned it down slightly, we may even believe it today. Though they went too far with it.
