Sixers Obtain Piece Of Court From Wilt Chamberlain's 100-Point Game

The Philadelphia 76ers have procured a piece of the original court from Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game against the New York Knicks nearly 50 years ago. The court had been purchased, and previously stored by Hersey Entertainment and Resorts over the years. In perhaps one of the coolest sporting even giveaways of all time, the Sixers will hand out mounted 2"x2" pieces of the court to ticket holders at March 2's game against the Golden State Warriors to commemorate Chamberlain's landmark performance.

The rest of the court will be divided among several venues, including the Wells Fargo Center, the Sixers' practice facility, and Hershey, PA, where the game was played 50 years ago. The Sixers will also be donating a piece to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA.

The 76ers will Chamberlain's family at halftime of the Warriors game in a ceremony that will include video highlights from his career and appearances from former teammates.
