Ex-Lakers Reporter Obliterates Wilt’s 20,000 Myth

Last week I published an excerpt from Roland Lazenby’s upcoming biography of Lakers great Jerry West. The snippet detailed sexual activity by the Lakers during the Showtime era - which was headlined by Magic Johnson. Lazenby has a fascinating follow on his blog today that expounds on the sexual proclivities of the Lakers and the NBA at large.

Wilt didn't sleep with 20,000 women

Chamberlain’s Old Mansion Still Uniquely His Own

First of all, an aside - has it really been a decade since Wilt Chamberlain passed away? Really. Damn. 10 years and a day.

(Doesn’t it kind of look like two people doing it? No? Okay, we’re stretching on that one.)

Well, just as the record books focus on his on-court activities, his old house still stands as a monument to his off-court persona. It’s not all the same, of course, but even the current owner - a Russian transplant who had never even heard of Chamberlain - still preserving some details of the house in honor of the most prolific ladyslayer of our time.

Wilt Chamberlain Can’t Compete With Fidel Castro

Wilt Chamberlain set a bunch of NBA records while playing in the league. He set a scoring record with 100 points in a single game, is the league’s all-time leading rebounder, and was the league’s all-time leading scorer when he retired. Still, the number Wilt put up that has earned him more admiration from men around the world than any other was the 20,000 women he claims to have slept with. Unfortunately for Wilt, it appears that there’s somebody else who has been even more successful with the ladies during his lifetime.
