People grow old, but Wilt Chamberlain's basketball prowess is timeless.
Almost 14 years have come and gone since one of the greatest players in NBA history passed away. Were Chamberlain alive today, he would have just turned 77. And were he alive today, he would still tower over us all.
He spent 14 years tearing up opponents and treating the hardwood like his local playground. During that time, he established himself as one of the most dominant players the world would ever see.
Blocks, dunks, rebounds—he did it all. Some of the things he did (blocks) weren't even officially measured while he was playing, which is anything except surprising.
Because Chamberlain was always years (decades?) ahead of his time. Four decades removed from his days as an NBA fixture, that hasn't changed.
Happy Birthday, Wilt.
