On this day in 1962, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in an NBA game. Chamberlain hit 36 FG’s and 28 foul shots, both league records.
Chamberlain retired from the NBA after the 1972-73 season:
He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1978 and still holds a number of NBA records, including most points per game for a season (50.1), most rebounds per game for a season (27.2) and most rebounds in a career, with 23,924.
Wonder if anyone could score 100 today?
