"He was basketball's unstoppable force, the most awesome offensive force the game has ever seen."
—Introductory line of Chamberlain's NBA Encyclopedia biography.

Wilton Norman "Wilt" Chamberlain (August 21, 1936–October 12, 1999) was an American professional basketball player for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers.

He is known for three things: his numerical dominance, his 100-point game against the New York Knicks in Hershey, and the number of women he claimed to have slept with (over 20,000, for those of you keeping count). He also made a guest appearance in animated form on Goober and the Ghost Chasers and had a role in Conan the Destroyer.

Chamberlain was a two-time champion, four-time MVP and one-time Finals MVP. He is widely considered the most dominant player in the history of basketball.
