Wilt Chamberlain Rumors
Green posted a triple-double Saturday night in the Warriors’ 120-101 win over the Sacramento Kings, totaling 13 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. Coming after another triple-double one night earlier in a win at Phoenix, Green became the first Warrior to ring up back-to-back triple-doubles since Chamberlain That was 51 years ago, in March 1964. “It’s pretty cool to even be mentioned in the same category as Wilt,” Green said. “Obviously, that’s something special in itself. So that’s pretty cool.
“The Buffalo fans from all over, people who moved to Atlanta or wherever I go, they all remember my dad,” Lara Kauffman said. “What people remembered about my dad was he played very blue-collar. I think he was sort of a reflection of a lot of people in the Buffalo community the way he played. He wouldn’t back down from anybody. He played against Lew Alcindor at the time. He matched up against Wilt Chamberlain. My dad would go head-to-head with those guys.
FTW: Do you have any regrets about the way you went out of the game? Shaquille O’Neal: I did go out on top, but the only thing I regret is getting hurt my last year because I was on pace to pass Wilt Chamberlain [in points]. Once I passed Wilt, I was going to go on a “Shaq is the most dominant ever, I don’t want to hear about it” tour. I already passed him in championships, I just wanted to pass him in points. I know people will say, “yeah, but he averaged 50 one season,” but I scored more. That’s my only regret.
