The 50th Anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s historic 100-point game vs. the New York Knicks is coming up on Friday, March 2, 2012.

Chamberlain’s feat in 1962 is one of the most compelling sports performances of all-time. There were no television cameras there and just a few reporters in the little chocolate town nestled amidst the hills of southern Pennsylvania. So in Wilt’s furious display of overkill and virtuosity, sports immortality and mythology merged.

Gary Pomerantz, author of “WILT, 1962: The Night of 100 Points and the Dawn of a New Era,” joined KFWB’s Phil Hulett and Penny Griego live on the air this morning. Listen to their interview here.
