There might be actual footage of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game

Now this is something. Consider this the holy grail of basketball footages.

It’s been long believed that there was no actual video footage of this game. Due to the small attention and the time, it’s not surprising to figure out that the possible evidence of this game exists. We know Chamberlain scored 100 points but we never saw how he did it. But apparently, there is a tape out there.

The sad part is that we don’t know where. And as we wait, we are left to wonder if we will ever see it. We won’t see all 100 points in the said video, but maybe just enough to see how Chamberlain dominated the game.

If this tape does come up, it should preserved in time forever.

It is an urban legend. It’s a story you tell kids around the campfire. It’s a bedtime story that you tell your kids along with your Paul Bunyan tales. It’s so unlikely, it can’t be real.
