Jeremy Conn: Wilt’s 100 Point Anniversary
50 years ago March 2nd, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in one game.
I don’t care what anyone tells you, this record will never be broken. Wilt was so dominate against smaller opponents, but he was just as dominant against everyone he faced. Wilt was a terrible free throw shooter, but on that night he went 28-32 from the stripe. There is no video of the game, just the infamous picture of Wilt holding up the sign with “100” written on it.
Make no mistake about it, Wilt was the most dominant player of any sport. He is the only player in NBA history to lead the league in all the major categories. He lead in Points, Rebounds, Blocks, Steals and he even lead in Assists.
