100 Point Game Embarrassed Wilt?
Fifty years to the day after Wilt Chamberlain’s epic 100-point game, the basketball world has gathered to celebrate the Hall of Famer and one of sports’ greatest records. Chamberlain’s former Philadelphia Warriors teammate, Al Attles, will celebrate the historic event in Hershey, Pa., site of the game. Chamberlain’s sister will be in attendance when the Golden State Warriors visit the Philadelphia 76ers in commemoration of the anniversary. And a San Francisco bar even has organized a watch party for the Warriors-Sixers game in honor of Wilt.
Truth be told, if Chamberlain were alive, he probably wouldn’t be too happy with all the attention.
“You know what, I think he’d be a little embarrassed,” said former New York Knicks guard Richie Guerin, who played against Chamberlain in the 100-point game. “He was a little embarrassed that night, to be honest.”
