Story 18
Wilt Chamberlain - I was working at Marshall Field's in downtown Chicago in the early '70s. As I was leaving work, I exited the elevator and there was Wilt heading for the same exit I was heading for. He was alone. I eased in beside him and said "Hi, Wilt". He offered his hand and said hello. As we exited the store I lit a cigarette as was my custom then. He asked to bum one from me which of course I gladly did and I lit it for him and we stood near the corner of State and Randolph and talked about basketball for several minutes. I was amazed that he was giving me as much time as he did. Finally a car pulled up driven by a beautiful girl and he said thanks and bye and he left. I still have the cigarette pack. Amazing encounter with a very nice guy.
