Wilt Chamberlain

  1. Creating a legacy: Comparing Miami Heat, ’72 Lakers win streaks

    Mar 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West

    It’s about legacy. When you talk about the 1972 Lakers 33-game win streak you talk about a team that had been the best in the West for the better part of a decade but had no rings to show for it, and when they put it together that year they dominated the league for a…

  2. Friday night video: Wilt Chamberlain was unlike any other

    Lots of talk the past couple weeks about Dwight Howard, his impact as a center on both ends of the floor and what he means to the Lakers. There is no doubt he is the best center in the game today. But no center could physically dominate his era like Wilt Chamberlain. And I mean…

  3. What was more impressive: Chamberlain’s 100 point game or Kobe’s 81?

    Here is the statistic that most amazes me about Wilt Chamberlain’s 1962 season — he AVERAGED 50.4 points and 25.7 rebounds a game. Averaged. No player in the history of the league has been as physically superior to everyone around him as early Wilt. Notice I did not say his legendary 100-point game, which happened…

  4. Kobe thinks someone will score 100 points in a game again

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Friday is the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a game. A feat that is shrouded in legend and myth, but in actuality was a bit bogus as teammates fouled the opposing team at the end of a blowout game to stop the clock, send them to the line and get the…

  5. Kobe youngest player to 28,000 points, not catching Kareem

    Jan 2, 2012, 9:10 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    There’s irony that it came on one of the worst shooting nights of his career, but Kobe Bryant set a historic NBA scoring mark on Sunday night. With a fourth-quarter free throw Kobe became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 28,oo0 points. Kobe is 33 years, 131 days. Only five other players in…

  6. NBA Lockout: LeBron James and the kingdom ruled by knights

    Oct 30, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT

    World Basketball Festival

    In 1964, the players for the NBA All-Star Game refused to leave the locker room at the famed Boston Gardens. The game was going to be televised, a huge step forward for the league, and the players knew this was their best chance at getting the owners by their tender parts. They refused to walk…

  7. Kevin Love is playing at the beach this summer

    Kevin Love Visits FOX Business

    In the summer in parts of Los Angeles, beach volleyball is a way of life. Very good athletes are out diving and leaping in the sand at 16th Place in Manhattan Beach (and a host of other spots from Pacific Palisades down to Newport). Countless of basketball stars with Southern California ties have worked out…

  8. Kevin Love makes it dramatic in setting modern double-double record

    Mar 10, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love has made double-doubles automatic. He’s taken the drama out of getting them. So he added a little drama himself Wednesday by almost not playing due to a sore knee (he banged knees with an opponent last game and it swelled up), then playing with a balky brace on it. Didn’t matter. He got…

  9. Kevin Love ties Moses Malone with record 51 straight double-doubles

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:08 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    With a three pointer from straight away in the third quarter Tuesday night, Kevin Love recorded his 51st consecutive double-double (at least 10 points and 10 rebounds). That tied Moses Malone for the all-time record. Well, all-time modern record (post NBA/ABA merger). Turns out Wilt Chamberlain did it 224 times back in the day. But…

  10. Poll: Could MJ score 100 points in today’s NBA?

    Oct 15, 2010, 10:56 AM EDT

    Michael Jordan said the other day he could score 100 points in today’s no hand-checking, less physical NBA. We have our doubts. But we want your opinion — could MJ go Wilt in today’s NBA?

  11. Phil Jackson: Miami has talent, but will they have teamwork?

    Sep 22, 2010, 8:39 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson knows a little something about winning titles. He knows there are two parts to getting a ring. First is having enough talent on the roster. Second is what Jackson has specialized in — molding that talent into a cohesive team. Jackson told ESPN 1000 in Chicago that Miami now has half of the…

  12. Oscar Robertson would ask that you kindly get off LeBron's back

    Sep 5, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    There’s a chance, remote as it may be, that LeBron James may average a triple-double this season. And yet, even in dominating the league with spectacular play, he will be booed, hated upon, reviled for his decision to leave Miami. But the man that invented the triple double, NBA Hall-of-Fame legend Oscar Robertson thinks people…

  13. You can bet the Lakers won't hang balloons in the rafters like they did in 1969

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:03 PM EDT

    See if this sounds familiar: The Lakers are the glamour team, the team with the huge stars in the prime of their career. The Lakers have steamrolled the West on their way to the finals and were the betting favorites. The Celtics have some name players too, but they were injured and generally considered too…
