Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …Wilt Chamberlain

Start here


I looked in my files only to find out I never did an Old  School Tuesday on Wilt Chamberlain, so in all fairness today Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday spotlights …Wilt Chamberlain.

With all due respect to those who were big fans of  Shaq and Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain was the most dominate player in NBA history. Yes more dominate than LeBron James. In the 1961-62 season with the Philadelphia Warriors, Chamberlain  played 80 games 48.5 minutes played  and averaged 50.4 points per game and 25.7 rebounds per game. For his career Wilt Chamberlain averaged 30.1 points per game and 22.9 Rebounds per game. He wasn’t just a scorer, he was a excellent passer averaging 4.4 assist per game unheard of for a big man. He set records that are hard to imagine even by today’s standards. He led the league in rebounding 11 times, he is the only player to average at least 30 points and 20 rebounds per game over the entire course of his NBA career. After the videos below check out his career stats and accomplishments. Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …spotlights …Wilt Chamberlain.
