NBA fans are adamant that basketball player Otto Port Jr. is the spitting image of Wilt Chamberlain and therefore is somehow related to him. Meanwhile, in 2015, Aaron Levi claimed to be Chamberlain’s son.
Otto Porter is a Georgetown native who attended Scott County Central High School and began playing basketball at age eleven. His father is Otto Porter Sr.
Porter Sr. also graduated from Scott County Central in 1976 when he led the school to a 32-1 record and its first-ever state championship. From there on, he broke records along the way.

PORTER’S JR.’S BACKGROUND
After Sr. then came his brothers and younger sister and were also in the sport. Porter Jr.'s mother is Elnora Timmons, and her family, like the Porters, were also involved in basketball.
Meanwhile, fans took to Twitter recently, stating that they are convinced that Porter Jr. was biologically related to the now-deceased Wilt Chamberlain.

HIS STRIKING RESEMBLANCE TO CHAMBERLAIN
Chamberlain was an American basketball player who played as a center and was famously regarded as one of the best players in the sport. One Twitter user tweeted:
“There’s no convincing me that Wilt Chamberlain is not Otto Porter’s father. There is no way!”
While another individual wrote: “Wilt Chamberlain might be Otto Porter Jr.’s dad/grandad. Otto is a photocopy of Wilt 100.”
Meanwhile, one other person shared Chamberlain previously claimed to have slept with 20,000 women and that it would not come as a surprise if Porter’s Jr.’s grandmother were one of the women.
CHAMBERLAIN’S SECRET SON
In addition to the claims, back in 2015, Aaron Levi claimed that he was Chamberlain's secret son. Levi was a biracial child adopted by a white couple, Don and Harriet Levi, when he was six months old.
He was raised in Oregon and had a happy childhood with loving parents. But the pair later divorced when he was only in grade school.
They told little Aaron what they knew about his biological parents: his mother was white, and his father was black and tall, at least 6' 10. The mystery about his origins began there.
In 2003, when he was nearly forty years old, Aaron began searching for his parents. When he eventually found and spoke with his birth mom, he heard that she was British in her accent.
He then discovered that his birth father was the most transformative player in pro basketball history and one of the supreme athletes of the 20th century.
Aaron, a printmaker, and digital artist, discovered that Chamberlain was his biological father. Chamberlain died in October 1999, at age 63, from a heart attack at his Bel-Air mansion.
