Example text

Several of us were familiar first-hand with what Wilt was capable of doing because after his senior year of high school, we played against each other in the Catskill Mountains in New York. Wilt was on one hotel team and I was on another. He just ate us up. He was amazing. At Carolina, we knew what he could do, but in the NCAA title game, it was a matter of whether or not we could stop him from dunking the ball. In those days, to have a man able to go over his defenders and stuff the ball, was unheard of, especially with his type of strength.

When he first came to Lawrence, the restaurants were all segregated. In the theaters, the blacks had to sit in the balcony or in the back rows. Wilt, with his awesome presence, helped change all of that. A popular student hang-out in Lawrence was the Dine-A-Mite on 23rd Street, where Roy and Mary Borgen (two great KU basketball fans) were the proprietors. One day Wilt went in there, headed to one of the booths and sat down. Roy and Mary came over, asked him what he wanted and served him. From that moment on, the color line was sort of broken in Lawrence.

He was a very proud person. Because of that, he was not willing to stick with changing his game if it meant the possibility of failure; even if, in the long run, the change would have been to his benefit. As I say though, he was polite in his disobedience. However, I do need to say that Wilt's personality and how it impacted his growth as a player was not a factor in the championship game with North Carolina. Our team's failure to win that game was not based on Wilt's shortcomings by any means, especially considering that in the game he scored 23 points, had 15 rebounds and was selected as the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament.
