YMMV: Wilt Chamberlain
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Donating millions of dollars to several charities, among them underprivileged children.
- Designated Villain: Because of his physical prowess, Chamberlain rarely got credit for his achievements and got mountains of criticism when something went wrong. This despite being a general Nice Guy and never using his size and power to hurt other players. As he put it, "Nobody roots for Goliath."
- Tough Act to Follow: For other centers and players in general. 100-point game? 55-rebound game? 73% fg for a season? 4000 points in a season? Only center to ever lead the league in assists? All of these and more are records still held by Chamberlain.
