Wilt Chamberlain 100 Point Video may Exist

The man was extra-diligent in the precautions he took. Wilt Chamberlain was not only an A-1 basketball player, but he also feared that someone would poison his drinks. That is why he had them tested by someone else before he quaffed them. The person behind the personality remains an enigma till today. 

Well, all that may be just about to change. A match, which took place in Pennsylvania, was the avenue where he scored his famous 100 points against the Knicks on the court. The footage was caught on video tape, but it is still unknown where the exact location of the visual evidence is. 

A coach named Josh Pastner relates how his father was the ball boy for Wilt Chamberlain way back in the good old days. Wilt’s father and Josh’s father both caught some of the game play that took place that fateful night in the 60s. Later on the video reel got passed on between generations. Presently, its whereabouts are a mystery. 

Pastner’s granddad is trying to retrieve it from the old items he possesses. He may find it anytime. Or it could have ended up in someone else’s attic. Only time will tell whether the video cassette emerges from the rubble kept in store by some old man. Until then the aura of glory surrounding Wilt Chamberlain will remain resplendent.

The Most Dominant Athlete in a Century? A Competitive Eater

Let’s not pretend there’s any drama here: Joey Chestnut is going to win the Nathan’s Hot Dog Contest this July 4. He’s won every time since 2007. Chestnut hasn’t had a serious challenge in years, and with Takeru Kobayashi, the previous record-holder, banned from competition, 2014 should be no different. For all the intrigue that emcee George Shea tries to inject into things, the only real questions are: Will Chestnut break his own record (as he’s done in 2007, 2009, and ...

76ers Drafted Two Players in the First Round. Neither May Suit Up This Season.

Philadelphia's nickname conjures up the city's past. Its roster moves evoke the future--the distant future. Sometimes the Philadelphia 76ers confuse themselves for the Delaware 87ers, their D-League affiliate. The 76ers seem to be always developing, never arriving as the finished product. The Philadelphia 76ers were so bad this year that they couldn't even break the NBA record for consecutive losses despite trying really, really hard. They may make another run at the ...

More to the point, the Purple and Gold will have to decide whether or not to retire his number once his career comes to a close.

Tiger Woods no doubt can afford the best medical advice in the world. My question: Is he following it? Love or hate Tiger, it’s welcomed news for golf fans that he’ll tee it up at Congressional next week and play in the Quicken Loans National that’s tied to his foundation. Golf simply shines brighter when he’s in the field, no matter whether he’s on the leaderboard or fighting to make the cut.
