Thoughts On Wilt’s 100 Point Game, Kaddish For Dad and More

March 2, 2019

Today, as is always the case on this date, my thoughts turn to Wilton Norman Chamberlain’s incredible, unprecedented, 100 point game on March 2, 1962.

Also, though I am far from religious, I note today is the day to say the Jewish memorial/mourners prayer (Kaddish), for my father Norman.

Among my links between Wilton Norman and my father Norman, is that Dad was a Boston Celtics’ fan and of course, almost every time, they prevailed vs “my” Wilt teams.

Dad and I did watch Wilt, as playoffs’ MVP, leading the Lakers to the 1972 NBA title, each of us rooting for him and the team.

We had some nice discussions over the years and maybe Dad and Wilt are having one now. Maybe.

Time: Mom and Dad faintly pictured above, when they were married nearly 70 years ago.

It is one week shy of 25 years since my father died and nearly 20 years since Wilt passed away.

Regarding Mom, it is a less round, nearly 19 years, since she passed on.

For round, for living, how about 100, as in the incredible 100 points Wilt scored in one NBA game, on the night of March 2, 1962, in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
