Wilt Chamberlain Globetrotter

Wilt Chamberlain has become notorious for his sexual conquests, but before that he was known primarily as a great basketball player.  He holds records for scoring, rebounding and durability.  He is considered one of the greatest players of all time.  He may have honed those skills when he played for a year with the Harlem Globetrotters, the exhibition team that is known for doing crazy comedy skits and stunts during their games.  Wilt joined the team in 1958 because he was prohibited from joining the NBA until his college graduating class had been completed.  He was on the team when they made a historic tour of the U.S.S.R. and played Moscow.  His Globetrotters jersey number 13 was retired by the team.
