Wilt Stuff
100 Point game
Wilt Chamberlain was the most dominant offensive player to ever play in the NBA. He averaged 50 point's a game in the 1961-62 season, which included him scoring an NBA all-time record 100 points in a single game. His 30 points per game average for his career is second all-time behind Michael Jordan's 30.1 points per game and it is 3 point higher than the third best, which is currenly a three-way tie between Elgin Baylor, Lebron James and Kevin Durant. (27.3) Chamberlain is the only center to ever lead the NBA in assists, which he did in the 1967-68 season.

Despite all his individual success, his teams didnt see much success in the post season. Chamberlain only won two NBA titles; one with the 1967 76ers and one with the 1972 Los Angeles Lakers. The biggest factor in Chamberlain's championship struggles was the Boston Celtics dynasty lead by rival Bill Russell. Chamberlain was able to lead the Sixers past the Celtics in 1967 to snap Boston's run of 8 NBA titles in a row.

Chamberlain played for three teams in his career. Starting out with the Warriors, playing there for 3 seasons before the franchise relocated to San Francisco where he only played one season. during the 1964 season Chamberlain was traded by the Warriors to the 76ers who had just started playing in Philadelphia. Chamberlain would play with the Sixers for four and a half seasons before once again being traded, this time to the Lakers where he would play the final 5 seasons of his career.
