Woodling

Wilt’s record revisited

Advertisement

Where were you 48 years ago today?

If you were sitting in the Sports Arena in Hershey, Pa., you would have witnessed one of the most storied — if not THE most storied — basketball games ever played.

On the night of March 2, 1962, Wilt Chamberlain scored exactly 100 points to lead the Philadelphia Warriors to a 169-147 victory over the New York Knicks.

If you HAD been there, you would have been one of only 4,124 fans watching the Warriors play one of their home-away-from-home games. Playing outside your home city wasn’t unusual in those days. Anybody remember the old Kansas City-Omaha Kings?

Today the venue where Chamberlain reached the century mark is known as Hersheypark Arena and is used mostly by a couple of area colleges for hockey games.

Frankly, I think the city of Hershey should designate it as a tourist attraction, if they haven’t already.

Nearly 20 years ago, I was driving my youngest daughter back from art school in New York City, and she wanted to stop at Hershey Chocolate World. After we had finished touring that tourist trap, I noticed a large structure across the parking lot that looked like an inverted half-pipe.

So we walked over to the building and peeked inside. At the time, I knew Chamberlain had scored those 100 points in Hershey, but I didn’t know the arena. Was this the place? Later I learned, yes, indeed it was.

Can you imagine the hoopla today if a basketball player scored 100 points? Not only would ESPN’s multimedia outlets beat it into our heads, I wouldn’t be surprised if a 100-pointer was the lead story on the national TV news.

Back in 1962, however, Chamberlain’s unprecedented and still untouched professional scoring record was hardly Second-Coming stuff because no one was really that astonished.

Chamberlain was so dominant in his fifth year removed from his college days on Mount Oread that a 100-point performance was almost taken for granted. Three months earlier, the Big Dipper had scored 78 points in a game.

During that monumental 1961-62 season, Chamberlain averaged — are you ready for this? — an NBA-record 50.4 points a game. He also led the league in rebounding at 25.7.

Even more amazing, the Dipper averaged 48.5 minutes on the floor even though NBA games last 48 minutes. Overtimes accounted for the discrepancy. Wilt went the distance in 79 of the Warriors’ 80 contests that season.

On the historic night nearly a half-century ago, Chamberlain shot 36-for-63 from the field and 28-for-32 from the foul line, a remarkable feat considering his career free-throw percentage was a bricky .511.

Before he died in 1999 at the age of 63, Chamberlain realized the 100-pointer was the signature game of his career, saying: “It has become my handle, and I’ve come to realize just what I did.”

Two years from now, wouldn’t it be great if the NBA celebrated that game’s 50th anniversary by staging another game in the Hersheypark Arena? The place seats only about 7,000, but what the heck? Think of the positive publicity.

Best ever.

Still remember the season where he averaged 50 points, 20 Rbs, 10 blocks (ex player heresay stat not kept), & 10 assists per game!!!!!

He averaged a quandruple double that year -- again one stat (blocks) was heresay, but you get the point.

The man was Zeus.

The guy was ridiculous. If he ever had even close to the teams that Bill Russell played on he wouldve won 15 NBA championships in a row.

When he was 55 NBA teams were still offering him contracts (no joke!)...

And an absolute dominating shot blocking & rebounding machine!!!

It's not even a contest -- absolute no question about it best ever, the only contest is for 2nd best.

killabees 12 years, 7 months ago

My other favorite Wilt stat is the time he set the record (still stands of course) for most rebounds in a game -55.

He did it against the Celtics and Bill Russell.

I also like he was told he didn't share the ball enough, so the next year he led the league in assists -the only center to ever do so.

Robert Brock 12 years, 7 months ago

Wilt still has the record for most rebounds in a game: 55 against Bill Russell and the Celtics. Nobody will ever come close to beating that stat.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 7 months ago

CHAMBERLAIN, Naismith, Allen, JoJo, Pierce, Clyde, Manning, Faulkenstein, Smith, Roy, Self, Brown; All of the GREATEST threads in basketball HISTORY have been sewn in Lawrence, Kansas. And hands down, the best player ever was the Big Dipper! For almost 10 years I watched Philly and Boston in the finals. Willis slipped in one year, but you are right, the Celts had the better team with the Jones boys, Havlicek and Russell. But never has anyone dominated any team sport like Wilt. Maybe never again. But you can bet if someone does, he'll be playing in Allen fieldhouse. RCJH!!!

Funhawk 12 years, 7 months ago

There is an old black and white photo of Wilt sitting in his locker room after the game. The picture shows Wilt holding up a piece of paper for the camera. It says, 100. Somebody scribbled 100 on a piece of paper. At the time, there wasn't near the media coverage about anything. Wilt's feat just got a little report on the sports page in 1962. No TV, no publicity, just one grainy picture. And, one amazing game by Wilt.

kcgregory 12 years, 7 months ago

"Wilt is the best ever to play the game - by far. And that includes the over-hyped, over-sold MJ. Ask those who would know: Bill Russell, Jerry West, et al, who have seen them all - they all emphatically state Wilt is the best."

What an utterly ridiculous statement. I guess of you're a stat freak we could be considered the best, but isn't winning what counts? Bill Russell would never say Wilt was better than him and 'those who would know' would almost unanimously say Russell was better than Wilt.

5yardfuller 12 years, 7 months ago

100,

Blocks weren't kept track of in 1962, but assists were. Wilt had 192 assists in 80 games that year, or 2.4 per game. Wilt led the league in assists in 1967-68 with 702 assists in 82 games, or 8.6 per game.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 7 months ago

Not ridiculous at all. Russell had the Jones boys, Havlicek, Heinson,and Sanders. Wilt had Greer, Jackson, and a guy named Wally. Oh, and Cunningham. Head to head Wilt dominated more than Russell, but Bill was definitely #2. As for MJ and todays game... is watered down so much half the guys playin wouldn't have even seen the locker room. Very few even try to play defense at all. Guess that's why I like watching Aldrich so much. He's a throwback. Sure hope he's good enough to be successful at the next level. His shot blocking is similar to Russell's in that he knows when to keep it in play and when to put it in the 3rd row. His offensive game is lacking, especially when he puts it on the floor. He then becomes 5'9" tall. Sure couldn't say that about the "Stilt"! Not ridiculous at all, quite objective to say the least. RCJH!!!

Ryan Wood 12 years, 7 months ago

"And that includes the over-hyped, over-sold MJ. "

Wow.

Drew Alan 12 years, 7 months ago

how about instead of saying that most of the guys in the league now wouldn't have seen the locker room, we realize that the only reason a guy like MJ or LeBron hasn't dominated in the same statistical way that Wilt did is that the talent level of the ENTIRE LEAGUE is dramatically better. If you had Dwight Howard play 48 minutes a game on a team filled with little dudes that took set shots and had him play against a team filled with little dudes that took set shots he would absolutely average a triple double.

100 12 years, 7 months ago

5yard,

so he's 1.4 assists per game in the 8.6 assists per game year of averaging a quadruple double, allowing for player heresay on blocks.

Thanks for the correction. However if quadruple doubles were ever kept back then (blocks included), Wilt wouldve had more than we could count.

And yes the 55 rebounds is unbeatable. Against Russel!!!

And 100 points.

I remember the other team's strategy was usually hang on Wilt.

As for those speculating about what Russel or others would say, you might be right -- howver they all know.

It's not even a close contest -- all you have to do is pick up an NBA record book. He affected the game more than any player ever.

Just a beast & clearly without question the best ever -- it's a joke that MJ or Lebronare even put in the same conversation with Wilt.

KU76erfan 12 years, 7 months ago

I'm doubly biased, but get sick of having to "defend" Wilt to people who have no inkling of what this guy was capable of.

Drew Alan 12 years, 7 months ago

100, I agree that its a joke, but not because of disparate skill levels between the players themselves. its like comparing apples to oranges. In the late 50's and 60's, when Wilt played, the game was dramatically different than it is today, the talent level of his peers was dramatically different, the strategy was different, the athleticism and specialization were all different. Wilt is surely one of the 10 best players to ever play the game, but guys like Micheal Jordan, LeBron James (by the time his career is over), Kobe Bryant (who DID score 81 points in a single game within the last 5 years, second best single game total ever), Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul Jabaar, Pete Maravich, Jerry West, etc. all deserve consideration as well. If you look at a list of the best 50 players in NBA history, I think the only conclusing that can be reached (or should be?) is that all of those guys were REALLY good, and all of them had a tremendous impact on the game of basketball.

100 12 years, 7 months ago

There's a classic clip of him at Allen Fieldhouse drbbling the ball up the court like a 6'1" guard, a defender running beside him & Wilt throws (on the fly) a behind the back pass to a cutting teammate for a score.

Remarkably there were several times Danny Manning did this too at the Fieldhouse.

I still remember the first time I saw Danny do that his freshman year -- it was like we knew Wilt's UNC pain would finally get flushed courtesy of Danny manning sometime in the next few years.

Sure enough it was 31 years later in the same city nonetheless.

Wilt & Danny were just phenomenal players, albeit Wilt obviously a true center with small man skills when needed with incredible leaping, wing span (8 inches more than Kareem) & Jacque Vaughnesque court vision to boot.

When it cones to the all time KU team, I find it laughable that the ESPN's and Sports Illustrateds always say we would get beat in an all time title game matchup by UCLA.

I mean, really???

  1. Wilt Chamberlain (10 give or take time NBA P.O.Y.)
  2. Cole Aldrich
  3. Paul Pierce (one NBA finals MVP)
  4. Jo Jo White (2 NBA finals MVP)
  5. Danny Manning (oh yeah, our 6'11 point)

offense aside, & we would score in bunches, can you say, "Defense!!!!!"

UCLA would seriously have 12 points at halftime!!!!

100 12 years, 7 months ago

If Cole gets in foul trouble swatting too many of Bill Walton's shots, here's what Phog & his assistants (Larry & Bill) need to do:

  1. Wilt
  2. Danny
  3. Pierce
  4. Jo Jo
  5. Darnell Valentine

Darnell's Defense at the guard is as good as it gets. Very solid contributor, nearly a decade of solid NBA paychecks. The glue we need for the other 4 stars & a fantastic jump shooter if he finds a seam. Great court vision & a great teammate.

Once we get to the 2nd half we put Cole back in for as long as he can handle Walton without fouling out. Luckilly we have 7 foot madman fundamental freak Scot Pollard waiting on the pine to go pick up a ring.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 7 months ago

Defensively, only the bigs took to it to Wilt. And not very many of them either. 6'8" 6'9", GO AWAY. Kobe, MJ, shoot over from a distance, sure. But take it to the rack against Wilt? Never. The game is NOT the same. It's like MLB where a 3.75 ERA is considered good. There are just too many teams for the product to be as good as it was when you had the very best competing for fewer spots. Half the time KB or MJ dunked it was with absolutly no one trying to get in their way. Lovelette said once, if they bring it to me, they're going down. Yeah there are better athletes today, but there hasn't ever been another giant with Wilts' skills, and certainly NO ONE will ever dominate the game the way he did. There's too much parity, not too much talent.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 7 months ago

The Big Dipper was ABSOLUTELY THE BEST at Allen Fieldhouse AND the most dominant player EVER, at any level! NO CONTEST!!! RCJH!!! And the circumstances that blacks played under back then, WERE apples and oranges. The Iversons and Kobes couldn't even imagine what it was like. Hell, they could hardly eat a meal in public back then. These CA'es don,t know how good they've had it. What a life.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 7 months ago

No feaks here, only old-school guys that ain't blind either. Stats are for pencil-necks. It is what it is. And Wilt was THE MAN!!! RCJH!!!

Dyrk Dugan 12 years, 7 months ago

Wilt never had the supporting cast, nor the coaching excellence or stability when he was in his prime. he had multiple coaches his first six or seven years....it's truly sad he was described as selfish back in those days and immediately after....heck, he almost had to be!

Wilt also talked a lot about dialing it down a notch...he had to or else he would have broken hands as he slammed the ball into the basket, or in blocking shots...he was just physically sooo much stronger than anyone else.

Wilt Chamberlain was the best basketball player ever to play...period, period, and period.

He did more things on the court, that no one else has really come close to doing.

MJ has six straight titles...and averaged 30 a game....but per before, Wilt has two titles, and the same scoring avg...plus he had 23 boards a game. and basically had no coaching. MJ only got really good with Phil and Scottie....again, talented and good support for multiple years.

as Bill Walton said in one interview...he was quoting Wilt and he was talking to Michael Jordan...."in my day, all the rules were changed in basketball to hinder me....all the rules now are changed to help you..." 'Nuff said.

kcgregory 12 years, 7 months ago

wilt is one of the biggest disappointments of all time. if he would have had a team first attitude as opposed to me first then how many titles would he have won? he didn't lead the league in assists b/c he was team first, he did it to prove the naysayers wrong--again ME first. he's in the second tier of all-time greats due to his immense physical talent and impact on the game, but you can't be the greatest of all time period period period when you couldn't win titles (I realize he didn't get shut out here, but the others in the conversation won many more). i love ku, rock chalk and all that, but arguing for wilt against the likes of MJ and Russell is seeing it through crimson and blue glasses.

kcgregory 12 years, 7 months ago

it's similar to those who argue marino was better than elway, montana, etc. i can make that argument better than the wilt one though...

100 12 years, 7 months ago

Best ever.

If we're gonna compare it in football terms, give Wilt a Jerry Rice & a line & a defense and see what happens.

I'll tell you what wouldve happened, it wouldve been 15 rings, no contest.

Russell had all the Rices & Offensive lines & more his entire career, a great player for sure.

But he was no Chamberlain.

Did you ever see three guys hanging on his arms. While dunking?

Did Russel ever have rules changed to make the game more fair for everyone else?

Bill Russell is great, a great man and a top 10 player all time. But look what happens when it gets clogged up inside... He had four all stars to pass to!!!

Yes those Wilt-Russel matchups will always be the naysayers Goldmine, but switch those two bodies around and see what happens...

Russell was great, great & great with his Celtic teammates & Celtic ownership.... but he was, my friends, no Wilt Chamberlain.

Not even close.

Wilt was crafted from another Universe.

Open the record books. Take a look at his teammates.

This is a joke, it's not even a contest.

If MJ is getting offered an NBA contract at 55 during the 2020 playoffs, then we can talk.

Look at the record books, look at the record books & look at the record books. Also look at Russel's teammates & ownership.

Best NBA franchis ever: Boston Celtics.

Best NBA player in the 90's: Michael Jordan.

Best basketball player ever: Wilt Chamberlain.

Call up God if you don't believe me.

You: "Hello, is Wilt the best ever?"

God: "Yes"

you: "ThAnk you."

God: "You're Welcome. It's funny you guys are so swayed by the Boston press, heck I like the Celtics too, but man aren't we overlooking the obvious!!!!?"

you: "But..."

God: "No buts... This case has been closed for thirty five years. I broke his mold."

you: "OK. Thanks for taking my call... God?"

KU76erfan 12 years, 7 months ago

Other than Hal Greer and Jerry West (with whom he won titles), what other great players did Wilt have to support him in his NBA career?

Tony Bandle 12 years, 7 months ago

I was at a St.Louis Hawks game with my Dad and my Uncle that night at old Kiel Auditorium. When they announced Wilt's feat on the PA during the timeout, some of the Hawk players actually collapsed on the floor in wonder.

Maybe we didn't get it but his fellow NBA players sure did!!

UncleMiltyN 12 years, 7 months ago

It doesn't matter, but it is fun anyway.....

I think the team I would put on the college court would be more like this...

  1. Wilt
  2. Manning
  3. Pierce
  4. Hinrich
  5. Collins

I'm an old timer I guess. I watched JoJo play in the pros and I saw every game Valentine played in Lawrence. There is no way Valentine makes our all time team unless you are just looking at stats I guess.

If I wanted to beat everybody, I would play the guys I listed. You can't give everybody minutes. I always had JoJo on my list until this year.

100 12 years, 7 months ago

The only reason I use Valentine is for stability if our 4 gets in foul trouble & we have to throw Manning away from the point to four.

Defensively, Valentine is the most solid point we've ever had.

I like your lineup, I've often thought that was a great one too. Seems like we're always trying to figure out the point, but the 2-5 are just absolutely ridiculous.

Truly we've had some great points, we're still trying to nail down our Chamberlain level of expectation with the point guard. In terms of running superstars, I think Jacque & Chalmers need consideration & Sherron is definitely closing the gap the last couple years.

100 12 years, 7 months ago

UncleMitty,

by the way as much as I like Hinrich, there is no way in the world Jo Jo White can be kept out of the starting lineup!!!

Have we lost our mind?

Jo Jo is one of the beat shooters & smartest players in Celtics & KU history!!

Put Hinrich at point & Jo Jo at the 2 and I'm with you!!!

Rick Arnoldy 12 years, 7 months ago

Wilt was a great athlete, period. Didn't he also high jump for the track team? And play professional volleyball? Am I missing a few sports? Greatest Jayhawk of all time.

In the talk of greatest KU players, I'm always amazed at how little credit Darnell Valentine gets.

Sparko 12 years, 7 months ago

Wilt was also a multi-generational basketball player. He stayed through the transition to the modern era. Probably started the modern era. . .

UncleMiltyN 12 years, 7 months ago

100,

It's too hard to choose. Valentine and JoJo are two of the best to ever lace 'em up in Lawrence for sure. People older than me scratch their heads on why Clyde isn't mentioned more. I guess it was too long ago.

I tried to pick the guys I thought would make the best team. It's a little early to pick Collins over JoJo for sure, but did you ever think we would even think about it?

When really examining the fact that Collins is going to finish with the most wins in school history and what it means....? I don't think people understand what a big deal that is.

I sat in the rafters and watched Valentine play. When ranking our "point guards", I'd put him third I guess. He won the awards without winning the games he should have. Yeah, it's a team sport and the coaching....whatever. The 1980-81 team with Valentine and Tony Guy was one of my favorites.

Collins has that competitive nature so many players lack. Put the winners and people who want it bad on my list.

clm2122 12 years, 6 months ago

I'm not old enough to comment first hand, but my dad will tell you that not only was Wilt the greatest baskeball player ever, but the greatest athlete ever! Didn't they change the rules and dimensions of basketball to limit Wilt's dominance? Or is that just an urban legend?

Woody Cragg 12 years, 6 months ago

You could put together many list of tremendous KU alums for an all time team, but Wilt would be at the top of the list of each of them. I think KCG just wants to pour water on a hot dog. If his teams were disappointments, it was because he didn't control the talent level he was with. He did make everyone better on his teams, quite emphatically, but you can't make a Mercedes out of Ford parts. Or punch out of horse p--s. Then again if you aren't smart enough to know what you're drinking, maybe you can KCG. Go ahead, knock yourself out.

Tony Bandle 12 years, 6 months ago

People, people people....not put Jo Jo on your team???? Listen to me very carefully, Jo Jo White may have been the most talented, all around guard in Kansas history.

Stuck in the plodding style of Ted Owens "dump it to the center" offense, no fast breaking, with no three point line, Jo Jo starred despite these restrictions.

Jo Jo was within an eyelash or, shall we say, a sneakers edge of altering history. If his buzzer beater basket against Texas Western is good, who knows what the landscape of the game today would be.

I can only imagine what Jo Jo would do in the fast breaking, three point shooting offenses of today. Also, he always guarded the best player on the other team.

And, not to buck my buddy Jaybate, but having been in the stands and watching Jo Jo for 2 1/2 seasons, when it came to crunch time or breaking a full court press, Jo Jo was the best point guard I ever saw, because that is when he took over the game.

Passing, defense, shooting, ball-handling, there may have been some better than him in any one category but no one could do all four so well!!

100 12 years, 6 months ago

They changed the width of the lane so he couldn't be as close to the goal.

They also changed the free throw rule (in high school he shot near 100% because he'd just leap & dunk it). The new free throw rule was the player had to remain behind the line until the ball hit the rim or went through.

Obviously this rule change not only dramatically changed Wilt's stats, it easilly took away 3 NCAA championships (freshman not eligible back then) from the Jayhawks (he would have never left before his senior year if he wasn't being literally abused by the college game).

Additionally he really planned on competing in the Olympics in field and track. It was always his dream. He said many times he wouldve never signed with the Globetrotters had he known he would be inelgible for the Olympics.

Would have been multiple gold medals including a basketball gold. That year was Rome & Wilt held it in his heart that he missed out on a lifelong goal by making a rash decision.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 6 months ago

It was good! I watched the game and didn't think, he stepped out of bounds.

100 12 years, 6 months ago

I agree about the commentary on Jo Jo's solidness at all guard skills. He was a great point but he was really just a fantastic shooting guard (think a more athletic taller Russell Robinson with a money jump shot, elevating twice as high).

Also as for his full court press breaking demeanor, no kidding!!! The guy had a handle & speed. Imagine Gale Sayers who could dribble a ball. Jo Jo's crossover (in football terms a cut) was tenacious. He "broke" a lot of opposing full court defenders ankles so to speak.

And his ability to rise into the air off the clean dribble I've only seen in 6 total KU players (accuracy & incredible height): Jo Jo, Darnell Valentine, Rex Walters, Carl Henry, Sherron Collins & Kirk Hinrich.

So even if we start Jo Jo at point (even though to me he is more valuable at the 2), we are left with:

  1. Wilt
  2. Danny
  3. Paul P.
  4. Kirk Hinrich????? (any ideas???)
  5. Jo Jo

Coach: Phog Assist: Self Manager: Larry Water: Roy Shot chart/ team Doctor/ pep talk guy: Naismith

the other option against UCLA is:

  1. Wilt
  2. Lovellete
  3. Pierce
  4. Jo Jo
  5. Manning

this last option would be dynamite against bigger teams like UCLA's all time stellar cast with Karreem & Walton -- also, UNLV's '91 team would get run into the ground with this lineup. We'd have 'em 95-22 in the first half!!!

Woody Cragg 12 years, 6 months ago

Mr.Smythe & KCG, To simplify the facts, Wilt Chamberlain was absolutely the best to play at Kansas. Beauty is in the eye of each who looks. Opinions are like individuals' billfolds as well and generally should be kept there. There are undoubtedly great talents abound in this day and age, but if you've watched how Aldrich changes opponents defense, just imagine a monster three times faster, twenty-four inches longer in reach, and who was a far superior passer WITH the offensive skills to surpass Manning and Dr J put together, AND could run the the floor like Paul Pierce... That my amigos was the GREAT WILT CHAMBRLAIN. It is true, the game was changed to help the little guys and to restrict him. But think about it, with all of the bigs of those times, and Clyde and Bill and Willis were of that era, NO ONE dominated the sport like this gentle giant, and no one ever will again. Not only was he a world class high jumper and basketball player, he was a heartbeat away from fighting Muhammed Ali for the undisputed heavyweight championship. Yes we have multi-sport Deons and minor leage Michaels, but Wilt was absolutely THE MAN. And a very nice person and gentleman as well. Very few athletes show the true class and skills together that this man possesed.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 6 months ago

And KCG, if this was a disappointment to you, I can't imagine what could possibly make you happy. Poor me.

Woody Cragg 12 years, 6 months ago

And (small letters) kcg, we all can see that your vision is clouded with rectomitis, because Wilt was absolutely NOT about himself AT ALL. The difinitive answer is that he was a LEADER. He certainly remembered his CRIMSON and BLUE GLASSES in his endowment! That particular medical condition you are suffering from is because your eyeball overlooks your a__hole and you get a sh--ty outlook on life. If it's contagious, dsmythe will get it too. There's only one cure... CRIMSON and BLUE glasses!!! Also mr smythe, (pronounced with long vowels) Dwight Howard is not capable of playing 48 minutes a game. Not a chance. RCJH!!!

docileboy 12 years, 6 months ago

The Big Dipper; undoubtably the best to ever play the game.

docileboy 12 years, 6 months ago

The only thing Wilt had in common with todays players is he couldn't shoot free throws either.

100 12 years, 6 months ago

After conferring with a few coaches around to town, it's settled: if we win it all this year, meaning win the 2nd game in April, here is our seven man rotation to take down UCLA's all time team:

  1. Wilt/ Cole
  2. Danny
  3. Pierce
  4. Jo Jo
  5. Sherron/ Valentine

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!!!
