American Athlete

Outstanding American basketball player Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain parlayed his 7-foot-1-inch physique, agility and natural skills offensively and defensively, into a stellar career as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Chamberlain dominated basketball until his retirement in the 1960s, averaging more than 50 points each game. He still holds the record for scoring points in a single game: 100 against the New York Knicks in 1962.
