Chamberlain is the only NBA player with that record of zero foul outs and many experts say it probably will never be beat.
Chamberlain played 14 seasons, including 1,045 regular season games and 160 playoff games, and 55,418 total minutes on the court.
In those 1,205 NBA games, both regular season and playoffs, he only reached five fouls 30 known times.
Chamberlain holds a number of NBA records in scoring, rebounding and durability. He is the only player in NBA history to average 40 points and 50 points in a season, to score 100 points in a single game and to get more than 2,000 rebounds in a single season.
He scored 31,419 points, grabbed 2,924 rebounds, averaged 30.07 points (second best behind Michael Jordan) and 22.9 rebounds (all- time leader), and played an average of 45.8 minutes.
In her March 26, 2012, article on the website NBA History, Fran Blinebury quotes Chamberlain’s former teammate Matt Guokas.
“He was aware of it always,” Guokas said. “Not fouling out was something he took pride in. But Wilt was not the kind of guy who was challenging players body to body. He used his size and his length and his leaping ability to go over players to block shots.”
Blinebury said Chamberlain was often paying the toll physically, “getting slapped, elbowed, poked, pulled and scratched.”
Q: What happened to the bill President Barack Obama signed for a minimum wage of $10 per hour? This was about five years ago. — P.S.Matt Guokas Jersey Signed
A: The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour and hasn’t increased since July 2009.
What Obama signed on Feb. 12, 2014, was an executive order raising the pay for employees of federal contract workers to $10.10 an hour, beginning in January 2015. That went to $10.60 per hour on Jan. 1 of this year. The minimum for covered employees who receive tips went up to $7.40 per hour on Jan. 1.
Obama’s Labor Secretary Thomas Perez told reporters at the White House in 2014 that the president’s executive order would boost the pay of “hundreds of thousands of people directly,” and would also benefit other Americans who would see a higher level of service, according to Politico.

The higher minimum wage for federal contractor employees was to go into effect as new federal contracts were agreed to, Perez said, taking “three to five years” for all federal contracts to be renewed. — Susan Turley
