    Default ESPN 30-for-30 about Wilt.

    Yeah - I rag on ESPN a lot too, but this 30-for-30 is some pretty good stuff.

    This one looks interesting.

    Welcome back to our 30 for 30 documentary short series.

    In 1954, before his senior year of high school, Wilt Chamberlain took a summer job as a bellhop at Kutsher's Country Club, a Jewish resort in the Catskill Mountains. By day he was making $2 an hour and getting great tips from the awestruck guests as he lifted their luggage through a second-floor window while standing outside on the ground. At night, he played on the Kutsher's basketball team and was coached by the resort's athletic director, Celtics coach Red Auerbach. Mixing rarely seen archival video and interviews with people who lived and worked with Wilt, this short chronicles a pivotal chapter in the life of one of the game's greatest players, and gives a fascinating glimpse into a time when basketball met the Borscht Belt in its heyday.

    I've watched a couple of these. They have a bunch on Netflix now too. I saw the Reggie Miller and Bo Jackson one. Both were great. Bo Jackson was such a phenomenal player...I didn't realize his career was really short. Injuries just suck. I hate the what if game. What if Bo stayed healthy...some with Penny Hardaway, Grant Hill, etc.

    Highly recommend the Bo Jackson one. I'll definitely check out Wilt.
