Wilt Chamberlain HD Highlight Reel In Color And 4K Goes Viral (Video)

Wilt Chamberlain is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Even if you take out the fact that he scored 100 points in a single a game, a feat that has never been replicated in the NBA, his other statistical achievements are absolutely mind-blowing.

Chamberlain was a two-time NBA champ, a four-time league MVP, a 13-time All-Star and made the All-NBA First Team on seven separate occasions. Beyond that, he also led the NBA in scoring seven times, led it in rebounding 11 times and even led the league in assists once in 1968. Yes, as a center. Aside from his free-throw shooting, the man had no weaknesses.

Multiple rule changes were made due to how dominant Chamberlain was, including widening the lane, instituting offensive goaltending and making it against the rules to inbound the ball over the backboard.

Unfortunately, because Chamberlain’s pro playing career spanned from 1959 to 1973 – many hoops fans today never got a chance to see him play.

Until now.

This week, a 4K HD colorized video of some of Chamberlain’s best highlights made its way online. The video speaks for itself:

Naturally, fans had some reactions:

When LeBron James offered up his three best players of all time, Chamberlain was nowhere to be found.

Same with Dwyane Wade. And Allen Iverson. And Kyle Kuzma.

Based on this footage, though – it’s hard not to feel like maybe Chamberlain doesn’t get his historical due simply because so many folks didn’t get a chance to watch him play. Hopefully the emergence of this new video changes that.
