"Wilt shattered virtually every scoring record in his first few years in the league.  In the process of doing that, he rendered statistics irrelevant.  So when Wilt scored 70 points in a game, no one paid attention.  That was Wilt being Wilt.  He had so many records that they began to lose meaning."  -- Leonard Koppett, Veteran NBA sportswriter and author.
