Friday Sports Funny: NBA Icon Wilt Chamberlain’s Quote

Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain NBA

Today’s Friday Sports Funny recalls one of my favorite sports quotes from NBA Icon Wilt Chamberlain.

“Nobody ever roots for Goliath.” ~ Wilt Chamberlain’s response to how basketball fans often treated him

Wilt’s incredible dominance as an NBA player prompted many fans to root against this giant, or Goliath, of a man.

He so totally dominated his sport that the league enacted rule changes to make the games fair for the other 99.9% of the players.

Today’s wider lane in the NBA and goal tending penalties were imposed because of the way Chamberlain vanquished all opposing basketball players.

Wilt overpowered basketball opponents whenever he stepped onto the hardwood. The 7’1″ and 260 lb. player effortlessly prevailed over all smaller, less physically gifted competitors.

Wilt Chamberlain’s towering size, strength, scoring ability and stamina empowered him to become the greatest player the NBA ever witnessed when he entered the league in 1959.
