This would explain why both 1964 NBA finals and 1967 NBA finals games of Wilt doesn't showcase much double-teaming from the Celtics. Seeing as how there is only limited footage of Wilt in the early 60s when his job was to score (and no games), it is probably why such little footage exists of these alleged double-teams but I'm confident that it was true and that I do have footage of it in my library.
What is hilarious is watching Wilts college games.
On every possession the entire defense would gravitate to Wilt. Some guys would be in back of him and two in front of him to try to deny a pass, and the second he caught it the entire team collapsed on him.
