    There might be a video of Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game out there

    Everything about Wilt Chamberlain is shrouded in mythology. Everything he did on the court, everything he did off the court.

    Like the new revelation he used a Sixers’ ball-boy as the “King’s cup-bearer” — the boy tested all the soda Chamberlain drank during games because Wilt feared he would be poisoned.

    Or the night in Hershey, Penn., when Chamberlain dropped 100 points on the Knicks. Part of the reason it is so mythological in modern terms is there is no film of it, we only have the stories, which get exaggerated over time.

    Except their might be film of that night… but that film too is shrouded in mystery — nobody knows where it is.

    All of this comes from Memphis coach Josh Pastner, who was in Philly as his Tigers took on the Temple Owls. When asked about his ties to the Philadelphia area Pastner said this eye opening stuff about Chamberlain, via The 700 Level at CSNPhilly.com.

    My father was the ball boy for the 76ers for many, many years, and he and Wilt Chamberlain were very close. … And Wilt Chamberlain always felt somebody was trying to get him on timeouts with assassination through drinking. And he drank 7-Up or Sprite, one of the two. And my dad always had to taste it before Wilt– He made my father drink it before [he] would taste it to make sure my dad didn’t conk out.But Wilt took care of my father. They always went around. Like my dad said, he never had a front seat; Wilt sat in the back when he was driving because his legs were so long.

    And in fact, my father and his father taped the game reel-to-reel in the second quarter when it was in Hershey, Pennsylvania in the 100-point game. They started when he had like 30-something; they thought it was going to be a special night. They gave it to Wilt — the 100-point game — and Wilt gave it back to my dad and my dad’s dad. He gave it back to them, they boxed it up, and he’s still trying to find it. He’s got all kinds of boxes, and he doesn’t know if he lost it. He’s trying to find the sucker. … I mean he’s got jerseys of Wilt, pictures.
    Is that true?

    Who knows? Who cares? It’s Wilt Chamberlain, where the myth is way more fun than the reality (the reality being he scored 100 points because his teammates kept setting him up at the end of an already decided game, and the Sixers would foul the other team to stop the clock and get the ball back to get him points).

    Personally, I’d rather believe the myth of Chamberlain. So for me, this is all true. Even if it isn’t.

    It's probably the most boring 100 point performance ever. XD

    A bunch of 2 foot layups/dunks and a bunch of free throws.

    Wilt was a freaking monster.

    Who would pay money to watch someone rebound and score like he's the only player on the court.
