Video Double Dip: Gene Banks & Wilt's Incredible Vertical

We wanted to take a look back at Gene Banks's greatest play at Duke, other than perhaps his clutch last-second shot against UNC in his senior year. The play we're thinking about? His outrageous dunk over UVa's 7-4 Ralph Sampson. It's still incredible to see.

While we were poking around YouTube, we came across a remarkable Wilt Chamberlain clip. For anyone who doubts Chamberlain could have played today, look at this because it's stunning: he was 7-1 pulling off a 40-42" vertical here and could match Jim Brown in a sprint. We're never going to see this again. Here he is at 36, still with a tremendous elevator.
