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.

Say What? 76ers Owner Dubs 19-63 Season a 'Huge Success'

Source: Big Government

Picture showing Al Capone, aka Scarface,
The Philadelphia 76ers lost 26 games in a row this season. The team’s owner nevertheless labels the 2013-2014 season “a huge success.” Sure, a “success” like the Hindenburg or the time Geraldo opened Al Capone’s vault. It reminds one of the success the Heaven's Gate members had in linking up with the Hale-Bopp comet. This was great. Really it was. Philadelphia 76ers fans, who’ve seen Wilt Chamberlain, Dr. J, Charles Barkley, and Allen Iverson, have of course also seen wors ...
