I to be old sufficient to have actually seen smashville247.net to win the national Championship in 58. A good memory because that sure. Miscellaneous I read today that i did not know or had actually seen had actually me shaking my head. The short article went right into some detail that it must be in college would certainly stand at the cost-free throw line and also from a standing jump would certainly dunk the sphere on his totally free throws. The NCAA later, in truth a good bit later, after that had already headed turn off to the Globetrotters, made decision to adjust the dominance to not permit it. I have never checked out that happen in a video game or heard of that before. The one point I would bet top top is that he was such a physical freak that he might probably execute it. Has actually anyone else heard this before. If it taken place I would certainly love to view a film of it happening in a actual game.

I remember reading about it. Never saw it, however do psychic a huge deal once the dominance was do to stop it. One can still shoot all over inside the half circle--Hal Greer shooting a run shot, Tom Thacker stood around 6 inches behind the line because some zebra crook once called him for having actually a \"toe\" on the line.Here room the FACTS;
Our emotional investment in sports is so strong and for this reason deep the we nearly always like mythology come reality.

The Paul Bunyan/Bill Brasky story that obtain floated around Wilt make it tough to discern the reality from fiction.
