Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor Held Court in the Summer of ’57

ESPN’s lofty Internet experiment Grantland has a detailed piece chronicling pick-up basketball games in Washington D.C. during the summer of 1957. That year, Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor held court on playgrounds across D.C. The games weren’t covered by the papers and, it appears, there is no footage of the bouts. The contests between Overbrook’s Chamberlain and D.C.’s Baylor have become tales of basketball lore.  [Grantland]
