Exactly 56 Years Since Wilt Scored 100 Points In A Game

March 2, 2018

Tonight is the exact 56 year anniversary of an NBA game, in which Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points.

The game was played on Friday night March 2, 1962 in Hershey Pennsylvania.

50 Years, 100 Points


Less than five thousand people attended the tilt vs the New York Knicks. A few Knicks players, including Willie Naulls, drove Wilt, who had a New York City apartment, home after the game.

It is believed Wilt slept for most of the trip, awakening to hear the other players state the incredulity of his scoring 100 points vs them.

Wilt’s team the Warriors, (the Eagles are NFL champions on this exact 56 year anniversary of Wilt’s 100 point game, another “56”) had a great employee named Harvey Pollack.

Mr. Pollack thought quickly and wrote the number 100 on a piece of paper, eventually that writing manifested in one of the most famous sports photos shown below.
