Remembering Wilt

Just thinkin' about Wilt this week. It being his birthday this week(He would have been 70). Phil Jackson recalls in a LA Times article "Wilt Got Back at the New Kid on the Block" how Chamberlain announced in '67 that he would lead the league in assists and did so. That's just how good Wilt was.

He greatness isn't as appreciated as it should be. Many years ago, Chamberlain was asked why he often was booed and he said: "Nobody roots for Goliath."
