Wilt Chamberlains Last Days

Wilt (The Stilt) Chamberlain, a basketball legend and American icon who scored a record-setting 100 points in a single game, died yesterday. He was 63.

Paramedics found the 7-foot-1 Chamberlain at his mansion in suburban Los Angeles around noon.

A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman said Chamberlain, who had been treated for an irregular heartbeat, apparently died of a heart attack.

Chamberlain had lost nearly 50 pounds in recent weeks, was scheduled to undergo hip surgery and had been in excruciating pain from a tooth extraction last week, relatives said.

It was not satisfactory whether other clinical issues might have added to the heart infirmity.

Chamberlain, one of the most adaptable hoopsters who at any point played, was the NBA's second-driving all-time scorer, following just Abdul-Jabbar.
