The do it room

Wilt Chamberlain

Wilt was NBA's first superstar, not because of what he did on the floor, but because of his larger-than-life personality off the floor. He was the first NBA player someone who is not a fan of all knew about. His off-court persona was mostly revolving around his nightlife, especially Wilt around the ladies.

We wrote about this before (you can find the full article here), here is the part about Wilt charming the ladies:

Perhaps the most famous Wilt Chamberlain's legend is the story of the 7'1″ NBA superstar sleeping with something like 20,000 women. In his book, A View from Above, Chamberlain made the outrageous claim he'd slept with thousands of women, but he made sure to let the readers know that he wasn't trying to break up any marriages: "I made a conscious effort to find out [if a woman was married]. Even as a single man, infidelity has no place in my life."

In a podcast with Bill Simmons, Mice Lupica told a story that gave us a glimpse into Wilt's commitment:

I flew out to LA one time to do an Esquire piece on Wilt. So I got to go to the house, which, if you were a kid growing up when we grew up in America, Wilt Chamberlain's house, the Bel Air house. ... He gave me the full tour. The front door was like the front door to a cathedral, it was that big. Then he took me into the master bedroom with a bed, Bill, it looked like you could land Air Force One on it. But finally, we come to the room that was all waterbed and all mirrors. Outside there's a little plack that says, "The Do It Room." And little Mike Lupica of Bishop Guertin High School, Nashua, New Hampshire, stupidly looked up at him and said: "Why do you call it the do it room?" He just looked at me (thinking) "Oh, you little, little man. Is that a serious question?"

Wilt Chamberlain's "the do it room"

Like the waterbed and all the mirrors wasn't obvious enough. If those walls could talk…well, mirrors if we're precise.
