"Everybody pulls for David. Nobody roots for Goliath." — Wilt Chamberlain

BLACK HISTORY FLASHBACK: On March 2, 1962, “Wilt the Stilt” Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single basketball game—a professional record that still stands today. He sunk 36 field goals and 28 foul shots. Chamberlain, who played for the Philadelphia Warriors and 76ers and then the Los Angeles Lakers, was the best scorer and rebounder in the history of the sport, and the first player to score 30,000 points. At seven-feet-one-inch tall, Chamberlain was the first professional player over seven feet, changing basketball into a tall man’s game. Chamberlain retired from basketball in October 1974 and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979.
