    Default Did Wilts "100 point game" actually happen?

    Seeing is believing.. And well I've never seen it, inclfact none of you have.

    That's because footage of the game doesn't exist..

    Lets take a closer look. In 1962 ( the year of the supposed game) the NBA wasn't very popular. Games werent televised, attendance was horrific and it was below college basketball in popularity. What a better way to generate coverage of the NBA than with a 100 pt game.. Could it be? Could Wilts 100 point game have been a fraud? Perhaps..

    Till this day we won't know but I consider Kobe's 81 point game the record for modern day basketball.

    I never looked into his 100 point game in depth but did any of the players on the court at that time ever comment on that game? I'm sure they did, as did the two coaches. Go dig that up and get more concrete evidence, OP.

    As opposed to someone not considering that the modern day record?

    This game was manufactured just like Magic and Bird were manufactured to exploit the black and white divide in the 80s.

    Lots of people have commented on it that were there. It was in the paper. Wouldn't someone comment it was made up?

    All I know is that most casual fans believe that the 81 points is a record by Kobe.

    People would say things like Kobe is not that good but he holds the record for most points scored. This is from his haters.

    Or others will say I like watching Kobe and he holds the record for most points.

    The box score was in the paper..

    The stat keeper for that game being Harvey Pollack himself.

Oh wait that's right, you can't cite those false dilemmas cause they never happened. Pollack never said 40,000 and he never said MSG... no story ever changed, because Wilt scoring 100 points isn't a 'story' it's an actual event. An event that actually happened - with actual cite-able data, unlike your imaginary false dilemmas.

    Yes because the one hurling insults and going out of his way to censor his curse word so that they don't get censored is definetly going to have a rational and unbiased opinion.

    And yes, these "false claims" can be found all over the Internet.

    Are you claiming you have footage of the game?

    When one goes into attack mode it's usually in self defense, self defense is usually triggered by a perceived threat.. May I ask.

    What are you threatened by?

    What's stopping you from addressing the points in the OP? This thread isn't a knock on Wilt, so why are you so sensitive.

    Wilt himself has been hesitant to even bask in the glory of a 100 point game, he doesn't even consider it his greatest achievement, his 55 boards against Russell gets the nod for that.

    Don't be mad just because somebody dares to ask a few questions about a player you may admire

    do u know how hard it would be to keep a conspiracy of this size a secret? 4000 in attendance, 2 teams with their staff and coaches, arena workers...and nobody has said anything?
