SIXERS OWNER Adam Aron needed less that 20 words to announce one of the biggest acquistions in team's history:
The Sixers have bought the basketball court that Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points on.
Aron tweeted the news on his Twitter account, writing: "AMAZING PURCHASE. 76ers bought the actual basketball court on which Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points. Will mostly be preserved."
The purchase could not have been more timely.
The 50th annivesary of Wilt's historic feat is fast approaching.
The former Overbrook High became the first - and only - NBA player to ever score in triple digits on March 2, 1962 when he led the Philadelphia Warriors to a 169–147 win over the New York Knicks at Hershey Sports Arena.
