Wilton Norman Chamberlain was born on August 21, 1936 in Philadelphia. He is a famous basketball player.

Why is he famous?

Although he was 7 feet 2 inches, he didn't come from a race of giants as many thought. Both his parents were shorter than 5 feet 9. In his early youth, he entered a rapid growth stage which eventually stopped when he reached 7-1. His great height made him legendary in sports history as arguably the greatest basketball player ever. Chamberlain played at Overbrook High School in Philadelphia, and collegiately at Kansas University, where he led the Jayhawks to the NCAA finals. Kansas lost in title game to North Carolina and that game haunted Chamberlain throughout his career and gave birth to the unfair image of him as a "loser." He left Kansas as an underclassman to play professionally for the Harlem Globetrotters, and after a year with them, signed to play with his hometown team in the NBA, the then-named Philadelphia Warriors. With the Warriors he accomplished some astonishing feats that no other NBA player ever did.

Personal Life

Chamberlain declared that he slept with about 20.000 women in his lifetime.  He is remembered as a great basketball player and womanizer. He never married and enjoyed his bachelor lifestyle. Organising a threesome was very easy for him.
