he is an interesting guy, I watched a espn docu on his baseball, they made it sound like he had a shot at becoming a good player and was improving before, what was it? the strike? I study other athletes for their character but I usually know very little about their sports, Wilt Champberlain is an interesting, legendary figure, bill russel is, walter payton is. there are traits usually that are common, but no always. Chamberlain, for example, didn't sound like the mentally toughest guy. in fact, in his bio he compares himself to Russell and says that winning wasn't as important to him, he wanted to enjoy life and he did, but what kind of champion is that. he enjoyed things though, which is why he now has the headstone that reads "finally I sleep alone". can't knock him I guess, he sounded like a force of nature physically, there are stories, verified by Arnold Schwarzenegger himself that he made Arnold look bad on the Conan set with what he could lift. funny thing was, he didn't look particularly buff or muscular but from the sounds of it, jesus, I think Arnold said something about him lifting him with one arm too. Mentally, he wasn't the killer the other guys are, they say he was rightfully afraid of hurting people because he was so much more powerful and bigger than the other guys.
