  1. Dale certainly had his hands full here…

    Wilt Chamberlin:


    118 – most games with 50 or more points

    9 – most seasons leading league in field goal percentage

    23,924 – most rebounds

    22.9 – highest rebounds-per-game average (minimum 400 games)

    7 – shares career record for most consecutive seasons leading league in scoring (1959-60 through 1965-66)

    Dale Wayne Schlueter (November 12, 1945 – July 24, 2014) was an American professional basketball player born in Tacoma, Washington.

    A 6’10” center from Colorado State University, Schlueter was selected by the San Francisco Warriors in the sixth round of the 1967 NBA draft and by the Houston Mavericks in the 1967 ABA Draft.

    Schlueter played in the National Basketball Association from 1968 to 1978 as a member of the San Francisco Warriors, Portland Trail Blazers, Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks, Buffalo Braves, and Phoenix Suns. He averaged 5.3 points and 5.2 rebounds over his career.[1] He died of cancer on July 24, 2014.[2]

  2. Wilt the Stilt he used to be called. He had some interesting claims as to his sexual prowess. Liked him in the Conan The Barbarian movie he played in. At the time I thought he was actually a better actor than Arnold in the movie.

  3. Dale Schlueter was a Good Will Ambassador for the Blazers after his active career. Dale and wife, Jeni, were a great force, boosting Trail Blazer initiatives.
