I'm following the NBA Finals and just want to "slam dunk" the evil Ben
Zimmer with new material from Newspaperarchive.
Sorry to do this to you, Barry, but here's one from Feb.  '69:

1969 _Chicago Tribune_ 10 Feb C1/1 With West missing his  14th game of the
year and the 109th of his oft-injured career, Wilt  slam-dunked and used
his fall-away shot to hit for 17 in each of the first  two periods and 22
in the crucial third quarter when Los Angeles outscored  the Suns, 39 to
27 January 1969, Long Beach (CA) Press-Telegram, pg. C4, col. 3:
The big guy first made a free throw, then a slam dunk.
(Wilt Chamberlain -- ed.)
