Wilt Chamberlain Rumors

So yes, he’ll tell you, he badly wants to win the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award and considers himself deserving. And yes, with the next challenge coming Friday against the Dallas Mavericks and an ABC game at 3:30 p.m. Sunday against the Houston Rockets, he would love to keep hitting his shots at such a ridiculous rate that he tops the great Wilt Chamberlain and sets a new mark for single-season field-goal percentage (Chamberlain set the mark of 72.7% in the 1972-73 season with the Los Angeles Lakers, and Jordan is currently at 71.5%). But Jordan, a man of Christian faith who has scripture tattooed across his chest and a smile typically on his face, isn’t about to lose sight of what truly matters. Not with the lesson he learned by losing a friend he’ll never forget.

Now, Pomerantz is writing about Wilt’s son, or someone who claims to be. Which is big news because, as far as anyone knows, Chamberlain never had children. In the March 9 issue of Sports Illustrated, Pomerantz documents Levi’s journey to find his biological parents. Levi, a 50-year-old, 6-5, printmaker and digital artist in San Francisco, was adopted in 1965 by an Oregon couple. In old side-by-side photos, he looks like a young Wilt. Pomerantz writes of Levi meeting his 76-year-old English-born birth mother in the autumn of 2010. “Elizabeth,” which is not her real name, tells Levi she is positive Wilt is his father.
