“Wilt 100” on NBA TV Friday

NBA TV celebrates the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game with a documentary special Wilt 100, airing Friday, March 2, at 7pm ET. On March 2, 1962, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a 169-147 victory over the New York Knicks in Hershey, Pa. The 100-point plateau is a feat that has gone unmatched. There’s no video footage of the game, and there were only 4,000 spectators (though I’m sure you’ll find 25,000 who said they were there.) NBA legend and Chamberlain rival Bill Russell narrates the documentary, with long-told stories, new insights, and original interviews with former NBA players, sportswriters and people who were there.

Video preview is available here at NBA.com.
