Wilt Chamberlain Biography
(One of the Greatest Basketball Players Who Played as a Center)
Birthday: August 21, 1936 (Leo)
Born In: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Wilt Chamberlain was an American basketball player. Considered one of the greatest players in history, he holds many ‘NBA’ records in several categories, such as durability, scoring, and rebounding. With a staggering height of 7'1", Wilt became a towering figure in basketball, during and after his time. In a career spanning 14 years, he played exceptionally well. He was also instrumental in bringing the essential changes to the sport. He is also remembered for not committing any fouls throughout a regular season or playoff games, which again is a record. Off the court, he experimented with other games, while writing his autobiography. According to his attorney Sy Goldberg, “he happened to make a living playing basketball but he was more than that. He could talk on any subject. He was a Goliath.” Hence, when he retired from basketball, he turned his attention towards other businesses and ventures, unlike many of his contemporaries. He played volleyball, promoted track and field athletes (especially women), appeared in commercials, and also acted in a film! However, he was never keen about getting into a relationship or having a family. He had several affairs and lived alone till his death.
