What I'd like to mention is Wilt playing 45+ minutes and even when he was injured is extremely difficult for anyone to do consistently and shows superhuman stamina.

Also if half the stories about Wilt are true (could bench 500+ pounds, even some claim he could bench more than prime Shaq at almost 60, around 50" inch vertical (more than MJ), could lift other players effortlessly with one hand (in his mid 40s Arnold Schwarzenagger claimed he could do 170 lb tri extensions), and he ran the 440 yard sprint at 49 seconds in his younger days (record is 44.5), as well as competing at an Olympic level in his school track meets), combined with his incredible skill, he's a lot better than most people give him credit for.

And even some people claim, as well as Wilt, that he held back to a degree as to not hurt people. His dunk broke someone's foot once, and another time it hit the ground hard enough that it bounced back up over the hoop.
