Wilt Chamberlain Rumors

It was the 10th 50-point game of Curry’s career, and he became the third Warriors player in franchise history to put up a line of 50 points and 10 assists, joining Wilt Chamberlain (Feb. 13, 1963) and Rick Barry (Feb. 23, 1974). In his 13th NBA season, even Curry can’t always tell when he’s going to have an offensive explosion like he did on Monday night. “It’s kind of hard to say because obviously you made the first two and they were both in rhythm, the way the ball comes off your hand feels good,” Curry said. “You kind of just stay in the moment and every possession it starts to kind of build on the previous one. Maybe going into the half, the shot that got us within four, the way the game had gone, you carry that momentum into the locker room, come out in the third quarter, that’s when you kind of start to wait for the avalanche to fall — and it did.”
Bob Pettit: I played against some of the greatest players to ever play the game. When you start picking centers, it’s hard to beat Wilt and Bill Russell. In my opinion, Russell is the greatest player who ever played. I’d pick him to start my team, in his prime, any time. Then the Lakers had both Elgin Baylor and Jerry West. They were such wonderful players. You have to include Oscar Robertson, too. He’s one of the greatest all-around players to ever play. These guys can play any time, anywhere and be extremely successful. You can build a team around any of them today.

Wilt Chamberlain accused of sexual assault

The actress who played late-night horror hostess Elvira has claimed she was sexually assaulted by late NBA player Wilt Chamberlain. Cassandra Peterson, 70, who began portraying the famous horror figure in the 1980s, made the allegations in her tell-all memoir Yours Cruelly, Elvira: Memoirs of the Mistress of the Dark, released on Tuesday.
She claims the former Harlem Globetrotter had forced her to perform oral sex on him. ‘When a 7-foot-1, 300-pound man has his hand wrapped around your neck, there’s really not a lot you can do,’ Peterson wrote. She also references Chamberlain’s memoir where he detailed his history of romantic relationships with women – which he claimed to be 20,000. ‘I had to wonder how many of those women actually consented to having sex with him,’ Peterson added.
“Why didn’t I try to scream, fight back, or get away? When a seven- foot-one, 300-pound man has his hand wrapped around your neck, there’s really not a lot you can do,” she writes in the book. “Should I have reported him to the police? Are you kidding? What chance do you think a former showgirl/ out-of-work actress would have against a sports superstar?”
