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.
