Wilt Chamberlain Swishes 4 3-Point Hook Shots in a Row to Win a Bet

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffJanuary 5, 2017

NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain would have turned 77 years old today. He holds 71 NBA records, 62 of them by himself, including most points in a game (100), most rebounds in a game (55) and most minutes per game in a season (48.53, thanks to overtime).

While many young fans can't fully appreciate how dominant he was due to a lack of film, we found some archived footage of Chamberlain winning a $5 bet with teammate John Trapp during a 1972 practice.

Note that Chamberlain shoots hook shots on all these three-pointers and doesn't even touch rim on a single onefour times in a row.

While the 7-footer makes it look easy, just try to do this yourself sometime and let us know how it goes for you.
