Happy Double Nickel Anniversary to the Wilt Chamberlain in rememberance of the historic feat.

wiltOn March 2, 1962 the legendary and arguably all-time greatest player, Wilt Chamberlain, scored an unbelievable 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks in a 169-147 barn burner. No need to adjust your screen, the numerical digits does have 3 spaces and the number is correct 100. What your eyes should have caught is that the margin of victory was 12. This fact alone speaks in volume of the dominance of Wilt Chamberlain. He was in fact bigger, stronger, faster, and more athletic than many of the defenders of his day. Now consider this ,today’s athletes  or even the athletes from  a few decades back are all pretty much all bigger, faster, stronger, and more athletic than the athletes during Wilt Chamberlain days. Now we know that there will never be another 100 point scorer in the NBA, however there was the one player out in LA and I heard of some high school name Ball who dropped the 92 with the round ball, get it, ball and ball. Never mind. Question considering all of the fact stated above,  what is the new magic number to be even considered in the company of the late-great and dominant Wilt Chamberlain? I say somewhere between 82-92.

  1. A.I. Scored the next highest, I believe with 60. Surpassing the great MJ. However the game and players have changed so much now a days it would be a feat for even someone with the athletic ability of MJ or even Wilt himself to do that again. Especially since he averaged 30 ppg. He scored high that game during the time he was scoring high else where. You brothers know what I mean. Ha! Another great blog Mr. Hall.
