'73- Wilt Chamberlain’s then NBA record streak of 1,045 games without disqualification ended with his retirement. In a career spanning 14 seasons, Chamberlain did not foul out of a single game. Moses Malone, who fouled out of only five games in his NBA career, later had a string of 1,212 games without fouling out.
'82- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar became the 15th man in NBA history to play in 1,000 regular season games, as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the host Kansas City Kings 109-96.
