Mr. Brady of Pennsylvania submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States Postal Service should issue a commemorative postage stamp honoring Wilt Chamberlain and that the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee should recommend to the Postmaster General that such a stamp be issued.
Whereas Wilt Chamberlain was a professional NBA basketball player for 14 years, playing for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, the Philadelphia 76ers, and the Los Angeles Lakers;
Whereas in his first NBA season, Wilt Chamberlain was named Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player in the NBA All-Star Game, and Most Valuable Player for the regular season;
Whereas Wilt Chamberlain won a total of 4 regular-season Most Valuable Player awards in the NBA (1960, 1966, 1967, 1968);
Whereas Wilt Chamberlain holds a number of NBA records, including top single-season scoring average, most regular season rebounds, most rebounds in a single game, top rookie scoring average, and top single season rebounding average; and
Whereas, on March 2, 1962, Wilt Chamberlain became the only NBA player to score 100 points in a single game: Now, therefore, be it
That it is the sense of Congress that—
the United States Postal Service should issue a commemorative postage stamp honoring Wilt Chamberlain; and
the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee should recommend to the Postmaster General that such stamp be issued.
