Important To Recall And Rate Best, Wilt’s Scoring Zest

March 2, 2023

Today marks the 61 year anniversary of Wilton Norman Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a single game, having done so on March 2, 1962 in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

It is the first time Wilt’s great feat is remembered without 11 time NBA champion Bill Russell, as with Wilt, who died 23 and a half years ago, no longer on the earth.

Speaking of 23, it is noted that the (in my opinion) undeserving, #23, LeBron James now holds the all-time NBA career scoring record. Another time, I will detail why another #23, Michael Jordan, again, in my opinion, has a discernibly better “body of work” than James.

Though I reviewed Mr. Russell well, (see below) in a show about Wilt’s 100 in which he recited Wilt’s full name as I did above, again another time regarding friends not talking as was the now under publicized situation involving Wilt and “Russ,” starting after the latter’s final game, of course a title winner vs Wilt, on May 5, 1969.
