Rightly or not, Wilt Chamberlain battled the label of "loser" throughout his career, and the 1967-68 NBA Finals did little to help his cause. Playing on a team with three other future Hall of Famers, Wilt seemingly had it made during this season. He became the only center in NBA history to lead the league in assists and his 76ers team finished with by far the best record in the league, putting up a staggering 122.6 points per game and reaching the Eastern Division Finals for an inevitable showdown with their rivals from Boston.
They engaged in a memorable battle that culminated in one of the most perplexing Game 7s of all time, as Wilt did not attempt a single shot in the second half and the 76ers seemed to deliberately keep the ball away from him on offense. As a result, the Celtics won the game and left fans scratching their heads as to what was going on in Philadelphia.
