There are few pictures of NBA great Wilt Chamberlain that truly exemplify how tall he was and how dominant he appeared without even stepping on the court. This picture is as close as it gets.

Before his sophomore season at Kansas, Chamberlain allowed photographer Rich Clarkson some personal time to capture his precious moments.

Clarkson's photographs have not only been on the cover of Sports Illustrated 33 times and the pages of Time and Life, he has been in arenas for the most monumental moments in sports history.

It is clear that Clarkson had a tough time revealing how tall the dominant center truly was until he had him sit down and look up with a sparkle in his eye.

A 7'1" behemoth, Chamberlain is the only player ever to average 40 and 50 points in a season and score 100 points in a single game.

He had seven scoring, nine field goal percentage and eleven rebounding titles. He led the league in assists per game with 8.6 during the 1967-1968 season. He also has the highest average assists ever for a center with 4.4.

Truly a God for his time period. While the opposing talent may have been slightly inferiror, he was a man amongst boys.
