The Philadelphia 76ers have already doubled their season-ticket sales from last season and are using a piece of the court that Wilt Chamberlain played on when he scored 100 points in a win over the New York Knicks 50 years ago in order to encourage more people to come to games, according to a report from Darren Rovell of ESPN.com:

To trigger a response, the Sixers are offering a piece of the floor on which Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points (the team bought it last year for an undisclosed price and gave it out last year as part of a giveaway). To get that piece, a fan has to make sure his or her information is updated on the special website, answer a few questions and, of course, buy at least one ticket to a game to pick it up.
