Wilt, 1962: The Night of 100 Points and the Dawn of a New Era
Gary M. Pomerantz (au)
On the night of March 2, 1962, in Hershey, PA, Wilt Chamberlain, a young and striking athlete celebrated as the Big Dipper, scored 100 points in a game against the N.Y. Knicks. As historic as the achievement was, it remains shrouded in myth. The game was not televised, and no N.Y. sportswriters showed up. Author Pomerantz brings to life a lost world of American sports. He tracked down Knicks and Phila. Warriors, fans, journalists, team officials, other NBA stars of the era, and basketball historians, to recreate the game that announced the Dipper’s greatness. This is not only the dramatic story of a singular basketball game but a meditation on small towns, mid-century America, and one of the most intriguing figures in sports. Photos.
