21 December 1969, Los Angeles Times, WEST magazine, pg. 19, col. 3:

For the first time, West's three sons, David, 8, Michael, 7, and Mark, 6, are beginning to show an interest in sports. But they prefer Chamberlain to their father because he can slam dunk a basketball "and Dad can't." Their appreciation for a man who can shoot better than just about anyone, dribble superbly, pass effectively and play great defense may come later.
