WILT, 1962

by | Read by Roscoe Orman

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

In an era when individual sports records seem to fall with regularity, one that will likely stand the test of time is the 1962 basketball game in which Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points. Wilt, 1962 brings this monumental achievement to life, as well as the enormous, often misunderstood, personality of one of sport’s most enduring figures. Roscoe Orman reads wonderfully, with a genuine reverence for Chamberlain. Like Wilt’s, whose public image differed from the person known by close friends and teammates, Orman’s style is low-key, yet highly effective. While Philadelphians may quibble with Orman’s attempts to copy the inimitable voice of legendary announcer Dave Zinkoff, the reading is otherwise excellent. As a bonus, this audio edition contains the rare radio play-by-play of the final quarter of Wilt’s historic performance. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
