DeAndre Jordan can't miss, and has Chamberlain in his sights

MIAMI (AP) Wilt Chamberlain, your record is in jeopardy. No, not the 100-point one. DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers - who has made 25 of his last 28 shots from the field - very quietly made a run at Chamberlain's shooting-percentage record last season and is doing it again. Jordan has made 149 of his 205 shots this season, putting him just a hair behind the league...

How high is Andre Drummond's ceiling?

Just before the season began, I anticipated that Andre Drummond’s rebounding numbers would exponentially increase in the absence of Greg Monroe. I set the over/under for his rebound per game at 16. Two weeks into the new season, and it’s obvious that I didn’t set that number high enough. Drummond, who’s still only 22 years old, is averaging 20.3 rebounds per game this season...

The ghost of Wilt Chamberlain still exists

Photo: AntDUHHIn a game championed by icons, Wilt Chamberlain’s impact remains one of the NBA’s most unique, fascinating and encompassing. Philadelphia Daily News copy editor Mark Perner still gets a kick out of the 76ers final regular-season game in 1968. The 61-20 Sixers played a rather meaningless game versus the Baltimore Bullets. On a squad […] The post 15 Years After...

VIDEO: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar passed Wilt Chamberlain to become all-time scoring leader 30 years ago today

What a legendary moment this was. 30 years ago today, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar became the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. In 34 minutes of play, Abdul-Jabbar scored 22 points on 10-for-14 shooting, though two of his points were extremely special as he passed former Laker Wilt Chamberlain to become the NBA’s all-time leader in points scored. And, of course, The Captain did it in style...

Wilt Chamberlain to be featured on postage stamp

And so, Wilt Chamberlain’s legacy continues. The man who once scored 100 points in one game obviously had a storied career that included winning two NBA championships and once averaging over 50 points per game for a whole season. That’s why it’s not surprising to hear that the U.S. Postal Service has decided print the former Laker’s face on postage stamps. According to The...

Anthony Bennett’s 19-point game gets the Wilt Chamberlain treatment

Anthony Bennett was a reach as a No. 1 overall pick and is looking like he may go down as one of the worst No. 1 picks of all time. But at least he’s shown some signs of positive life for the Cavs in the last few games. On Tuesday, Bennett scored a career-high 19 […]

Wilt Chamberlain thought someone would poison his in-game soda

Over the years, I’ve heard some pretty crazy stories about legendary center Wilt Chamberlain but this one that came courtesy of University of Memphis head coach Josh Pastner is an epic one. Recently, Pastner was in the Philadelphia-area to take face Temple University and one story that caught the eye of The 700 Level’s Nick Menta was this story about Pastner’s father (who used...
