From the moment the 7'1' center, a Philadelphia native, entered the NBA, he was an awesome, powerful, intimidating figure on offense. On March 2, 1962 in a game against the Knicks, at Hershey, PA., Wilt dominated the Knicks for an incredible 100 points on 36 field goals and 28 foul shots. The Philadelphia Warriors were the first champions of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), the league that evolved into today's NBA. The Warriors spent sixteen memorable years in Philadelphia. Owner Eddie Gottlieb sold the Warriors to a San Francisco group in 1962. Philadelphia was left without an NBA franchise for the 1962-63 season. A disappointing first two years in San Francisco and Wilt Chamberlain's desire to return to Philadelphia led the team to trade him on January 15, 1965 to the 76ers. Rick Barry, a first round draft choice in 1965, went on to lead the SF Warriors to the NBA Finals in 1967. The team won their only NBA championship in 1974-75.
