1936-1999. 2.15m tall. A great high jumper and volleyball player, but, alongside Bill Russell, he revolutionized basketball. Wilt and Russ were the first to combine sheer size with unparalleled athleticism (both were multi-sport stars). Wilt set records (most rebounds, 100 points in a game, a 50 pts/gm average in 1961-62), but Russell won championships.

Played for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers.

A self-styled "Sex Machine".
