Wilt Chamberlain was bigger than basketball. He couldn’t be contained. He still holds the record for most points in a game. He had his 100-point game in 1962, in Hershey, Pennsylvania, where his Philadelphia Warriors took on the New York Knicks for a 169 to 147 win.
That game was 53 years ago. That record has stood for 53 years. In 2006, Kobe Bryant came the closest to breaking it, with an 81-point game. But otherwise,
Wilt Chamberlain still stands a giant in basketball history.
