Wilt’s 100 (54 years and one day later)

March 3, 2016

Yesterday was the 54th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 point game in Hershey. Pennsylvania for the then Philadelphia Warriors vs the New York Knicks.

It is the 17th such anniversary without the amazing Mr. Chamberlain on this earth, at least as just any 7 foot millionaire (homage to Shirley MacLaine on us possibly having multiple lives and David Shaw’s book with Wilt).

This is the first such anniversary without long time Philadelphia pro basketball legend and team official, Harvey Pollack here.

After the March 2, 1962 game, Mr. Pollack wrote the number 100 on a piece of paper and had Wilt hold it up for photos. That photo is one of the most iconic of all sports’ photos, so simple and saying so much!
