Chamberlain was the first center to do it all. While playing for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers, and eventually the Los Angeles Lakers, Chamberlain put together an unbelievable statistical career that is in a stratosphere of its own. He has a ton of NBA records when it comes down to scoring and rebounding. Chamberlain is the only player to score 100 points or more in a single game, he won seven scoring titles and 11 rebounding titles, and he's the lone player in league history to average more than 30 points and 20 rebounds per game over an NBA career. He scored 50 or more points 118 times, 60 or more points 32 times, and is the NBA's all-time leading rebounder with 23,924 boards, which is a record that will never be broken.

By going to court in an effort to install demonic statuary next to Christian artworks on government property, members of the Temple hope to make a silly-seeming but serious point: Religion and government don't mix. Like that provocative and not entirely straight-faced film, "Pastafari" also involves court cases: by people around the world who have claimed the right to wear pasta strainers on their heads in official government photographs. (Many jurisdictions prohibit headwear in driver's license photos, for example, except for religious reasons. The folks in the new film claim to be adherents of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarians.) The tone of the film is light, but the legal challenges are not made in jest - the point being that preferential treatment based on … [Read more...] about New movies to stream this week: ‘The Tobacconist,’ ‘I, Pastafari’ and more
