Monday Blogdome: Writer shoots down Wilt Chamberlain's '20,000 women' claim

Feb 22, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

So Wilt Chamberlain didn’t have sex with 20,000 women? Is there nothing to believe in any more? Well, there’s one thing: Little person strippers (that happens after the jump). Come on in, the blogdome’s fine.
The Lakers Sex Talk Needs A Bit Of Context. Some of his associates doubted his claims. Doug Krikorian: “Complete hyperbole. Trust me. I spent many a Saturday night where Wilt would call me and say, ‘Let’s go out and have dinner together.’ He was the worst guy I’ve ever seen trying to hustle women. I’m serious. That thing should be debunked. Trust me. I saw firsthand. Yes, he might have had his share of women, but as a slick hustler, please. No. I saw too many nights where he was alone. What did he say, 20,000? It’s ridiculous. It’s farcical. Why would he even claim that?” [Laker Noise]


* Jared Allen’s Mullet May Help Him Land on the ‘Madden 11′ Cover. Allen, the Vikings somewhat off-balanced DE, is one of three finalists (along with Drew Brees and Reggie Wayne) to be the face of the next installment of the Madden football franchise. Of the three, Allen probably has the weakest chance of making the cover, but never count out a man sporting the sweetest Kentucky waterfall in the NFL. That’s right, Jared Allen has a plan – and you guessed it, somehow his signature hairstyle is involved. [Last Angry Fan]
* Matt Kemp Hooks Up Midget Stripper For Rihanna. Photo from the Phoenix-area residence where Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp threw a birthday party for Rihanna yesterday. Nice to see Kemp finally learned something from Lasorda. [SportsbyBrooks]
* Jayson Werth claims his beard as a dependent. Werth isn’t answering questions about his beard right now — “Am I going to ask about that thing on your neck?” he asked one reporter — but there’s clearly no need for him to address a hairy situation. That thing truly speaks for itself. [Big League Stew]
* Collin Balester’s mustache is incredible. Collin Balester literally already has a top-10 mustache in Major League Baseball, with the potential to go far, far higher, depending on what he chooses to do. I mean, this is within a matter of months, and it’s near-legendary already. [DC Sports Bog]
* Updated Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Odds. As always, these numbers are for recreational purposes only. Even after last night’s setback, Canada is still the favorite. [Off Wing Opinion]

    TO ” DONGMAN ” . YOU MIGHT HAVE HAD 5000 ALL RIGHT. BUT I’M SURE YOU MUST MEAN GUYS..RIGHT? THOSE WHO CAN DO…THOSE WHO CANT BRAG ABOUT IT!!

    Let’s run the numbers. If Wilt made that claim at age 60 and started his count at age 15, that’s 45 years. 45 years is 16436 days, counting leap years. If he had one per day, he still wouldn’t make it. Sorry Wilt, I’m not buying it.

    The same amount of people who care so much that Tiger cheated on his wife….which has nothing to do with golf.

    Rod, there were several 7 footers or near 7 footers back then. Not to mention Bill Russell. Wilt was an incredible athlete, and could shot from anywhere but the free throw line. Jerry West said it was weird to watch a 7 footer win all the suicide drills. He seldom lost a game of horse to teammates. Was the Big 8 high jump champ and ws competitive in the 1/4 mile and shot put. He would eat them alive today, if he played today. Was also known as the strongest man in sports.

    A thousand women a year for 20 years, less than 3 women per night at 5 minutes each. The task is very achievable plus plenty of time left over to be a super star. I reached half of this in 20 years in the Navy and half of that time was spent at sea on ships with no women on them. I reached this with 6 a night on my spare time I had working harder than Wilt did.

    hmm, maybe i’m the only one that couldn’t care less how many women Wilt slept with. not surprising degenerates like yourself find it necessary to make this (non-news), a news story. rick chandler, you stay classy my friend.

    Think about taking an English writing class or two. Something tells me a spelling course wouldn’t hurt either. Cheers……….

    You poor miserable soul! The fourth partner I ever had was my beautiful soulmate for life. The sex was, and still is, more fun than I ever thought it could be. If you’ve had 5000 partners you must have left a long trail of unsatisfied women in your wake.

    Occasionally you run across ego-driven-self-aggrandizing emails and have to smile. Am referring to Mr. Conte above who said when he was 23 he was nailing one at breakfast, one at lunch, one at dinner and then a lucky fourth late at nite. He then extrapolates this to l080 a year (after having to cut back after six months because of energy loss).
    Mr. Conte, do you really think we believe you could find four new women to bone in one day and do it every day for six months?
    I want some of what you are on.

    You guys must be morons talking about 20,000. That was just a “figure of speech” you dopes. Wilt was saying that he slept with tons of women. Wilt was too smart to settle down with one. He wasn’t dumb like Tiger. Wilt was the best basketball player this world will ever know and who cares about volleyball. It is kind of a dumb game anyway!

  15. saints fan - Feb 24, 2010 at 1:21 AM

    I dont think this clown could count to 20,000

  16. mg - Feb 24, 2010 at 1:29 AM

    I believe Wilt. Heck, I had 7,389 women just in one afternoon. When I was 12! Yeah, I believe Wilt.

  17. Jake - Feb 24, 2010 at 1:32 AM

    Wilt was the sponsor of Wilt’s AC, one of the first prominent track and field clubs for women. He liked being around them, for sure.
    But here’s the thing I’d say about any celeb’s claim of having more than even, say, 500 women, let alone 20,000. You can’t just be with them once and say goodbye and figure that’s the end of it. Some of them are going to be psychos and aren’t going to go away easily. Out of 20,000? Wilt would have had a lot of angry scorned women coming back at him with a vengeance.

    I met Wilt at a close friend’s small party in Mill Valley, California around 1972, I think. I was looking for my beautiful sister, and I found her in a small room with him and two hired female prostitutes, sitting on twin beds talking about relationships! He was very thoughtful, and was stating that my sister’s best female friend (white and beautiful) was being taken advantage of socially by her black boyfriend (also present at the party). I thought the whole event was hilarious, especially since no one else even knew that Wilt was in the house. I think he had sex with all three of the women, but I don’t know the details except that he actually gave my sister his home phone number (!) and wanted to see her again, but she was studying for a degree and didn’t want to get involved. true story. I thought he was a nice person. He was very polite and calm and quiet.

    He was famous for putting it in the hole!!!!!!!

    I killed 21,000 cong in Vietnam. How about that Wilt?

  21. Robert - Feb 24, 2010 at 2:42 AM

    For your info, he did score 100 in a game and averaged 50 a game for an entire season. I had to laugh when ESPN had their 50 greatest athletes and Wilt wasn’t number 1. The greatest, most dominant athlete to ever walk the earth, PERIOD!!!

  22. andy - Feb 24, 2010 at 3:34 AM

    Hey Doug, With everything else thats going on in sports,the only thing you could come up with is how many women Wilt had sex with?Maybe you should try a new career,I hear Walmart and Burger King are looking for people.OH,hey you don’t need to know anything either.

    ALL guys exaggerate their numbers! When any guy quotes a number of women he slept with I automatically cut it in half. Black guys tend to exaggerate even more, especially the ones that sleep with white women, I would cut theirs by two thirds. Of course, Wilt’s numbers cut in two thirds is still pretty astronomical but I do believe he’s inflating the numbers. In his first book Wilt show disdain for women of his own race, probably due to rejection he experienced before becoming famouse, indicating social ineptitude he hid beneath the veneer of celebrity. Anecdotal stories above seem to verify that. I’m sure he had his moments and did much better than most men but I don’t believe he consistently did as well as he claims. That he did as well as he did is just the power of celebrity for you, many women will have sex with a famous guy to stand in the spotlight of their celebrity for a moment.
