The 1991 Denver Nugget team gave up 131ppg.
the pistons held their opponets under 70 in five straight games in the 2003-2004 season.... only team to do it ever
just think about how hard it is to do that... i know scoring was really down that yr... but regardless... thats an amazing amazing feat
Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in one game. 30 more points than the Pistons held their opponents under for 5 straight games in the 2003-2004 season.
A professional basketball team won 7 games in a season.
Nick Young will be traded 36 times in his career, 64 less than the number of points Wilt Chamberlain scored on March 2, 1962.
Chris Webber scoring 61 points off of 47 SHOTS.
Our national debt is 15 Trill and steadily climbing.
Damon Stoudamire took 21 three pointers in an April 15, 2005 game. He only made 5 of them.
Barry Sanders ran for under 1,300 yards in a season 1 time in his 10 year career, and he missed 5 games that year (he was on pace for over 1,600).
Pistol Pete averaged 42.2 ppg in college over a span of 3 years, and that was before the FT line. If that was included I believe his average was over 50.
(Not a stat) In 1984 Michael Jordan wasn't the only Olympic Gold Medalist selected by the Bulls. With the 208th pick, Carl Lewis was picked as well.
Manute Bol had more career blocks then points.
In the case of Maravich. He shot 1152 FT's making 893 (77.8%) while shooting 1387 for 3166 from the field (43.8%). Dude was still a super bad@ss, if he did not have to sit out that than mandatory one year (where he averaged 43.6 ppg and 10.4 rpg on the freshman team), he could have gone for close to 5,000 points. If he had one more season in which he played 30 games and averaged around 44, that would be a fat four year record. In the mean time, 3,667 is pretty damn impressive in its own right.
Also, Nate McMillan had more total assists than total points (6.1 apg/5.9 ppg, 47th most apg in NBA history, 53rd most total. Nate was a great passer and defender, not really much of a scorer. Better than Manute though :)
Usain Bolt runs an entire football field in under 10 seconds
More impressive than Wilts 100 I think.
Eddy Curry,Adam Morrison & Brian Scalabrine have more rings then Barkley,Karl Malone,Dominique Wilkens,Carmelo,Ewing,Tracy McGrady,John Stockton,Amare,Steve Nash and Dwight Howard combined....
30p on 50% 7.5a 5r 2stls 1blk one of the best statical season for any SG ever
wade statline. this man was possessed that year
It's not as impressive when you look and see Jordan had seasons like:
37.1 ppg 5.2 rpg 4.6 apg 2.9 spg 1.5 bpg on 48%
35 ppg 5.5 rpg 5.9 apg 3.2 spg 1.6 bpg on 53.5%
32.5 ppg 8 rpg 8 apg 2.9 spg .8 bpg on 53.8%
33.6 ppg 6.9 rpg 6.3 apg 2.8 spg .7 bpg on 52.6%
31.5 ppg 6 rpg 5.5 apg 2.7 spg 1 bpg on 53.9%
30.1 ppg 6.4 rpg 6.1 apg 2.3 spg .9bpg on 51.9%
32.6 ppg 6.7 rpg 5.5 apg 2.8 spg .8 bpg on 49.5
IN A ROW
Jason Williams(black one) once missed 22 foul shots in a row in college
1995-1996 Bulls went 72-10. They started the season 41-3. Simply amazing.
What year was that 32 8 8 from MJ?
1.For 3 years 2004- 2007,Marquis Daniels was the highest paid player from his draft class of 2003(6 yrs-38million)..Higher than Lebron,Melo and Bosh....
2.Charlie Villanueva have 3 older brothers,all named Robert....
3.Lebron's mom has a reserved parking spot at every Health Department in all 30 NBA Cities....j/k
Manute Bol once made 6 three's in a single game
Manute Bol also once blocked 5 shots in one possession
Between 99 and 01 O'Neal played 39 games and posted averages of 30.6 pts 15.4 reb 3.1 ass ...
his overall finals numbers are just unbelievable.
But the most amazing statistic of all time is on March 6 2000 Rip Hamilton set the NBA record for most points scored by someone to get no other stat.
truly pathetic thats why he got traded for Stackhouse
Wilt Chamberlains CAREER AVERAGES are:
30.1 PPG and 23 RPG
While he had seasons like this IN A ROW:
37.6 PPG and 27.0 RPG
38.4 PPG and 27.2 RPG
50.4 PPG and 25.7 RPG
44.8 PPG and 24.3 RPG
36.9 PPG and 22.3 RPG
34.7 PPG and 22.9 RPG
38.9 PPG and 23.5 RPG
Wilt the ONLY guy in the world who can really say I AVERAGED 50 in the league lol
And on top of that he slayed 1 million women lol
As far as amazing statistics go, I'd probably put that one at a very distant last...but I appreciate it man.
You were also the first user to reach 1,000 points
Kevin Love averaged a combined 41.4 Pts Rebs and Assists combined last season which was best in the league over Lebron at 41.3.
Also the Sixers made the playoffs despite not having one player in the top 50 in this category. Igoudala was 54th with a combined 24 while Bynum was 15th at 31.9.
- Wilt Chamberlain did indeed have the 7 consecutive seasons FastANDFurious mentioned (well, the last one posted was through 38 games with the San Francisco Warriors. He finished the season with the Philadelphia 76ers averaging 30.1 ppg and 22.3 rpg in 35 games). The next season was actually his 7th straight scoring title (33.5 ppg). However, his 8th season, his first NOT leading the NBA in scoring, was his first NBA Championship (on a 68-13 76ers team). Wilt's 1971-72 Championship with the Lakers (a team that went 69-13) was the first season he averaged under 20 ppg.
- Shaquille O'Neal shot a higher FT percentage in college than Hakeem Olajuwon (57.5%/55.5%). Just a little factoid, Hakeem got better, Shaq missed more FT's in the NBA than anyone not named Wilt Chamberlain.
- Shawn Bradley has the highest Block % in the basketball-reference.com database (for qualifiers, Manute Bol's is indeed higher, but he did not qualify). It is 7.83%, a decent ways ahead of Theo Ratliff's second place 7.19%.
Sure I have more, just a few that I thought of.
Wilt Chamberlain never fouled out.
If you round up, Magic averaged a triple double during the 81-82 season when he averaged 18.6, 9.6, and 9.5.
Andris Biedrins is 15-65 on free throws for the last 3 years.
Wilt the Stilt shtupped oever 10,000 women. That's one per night over a span of over 27 years.
And its all true
Oh I forgot Yinka Dare went 99 straight games without an assist
Jordan missed the playoffs with a player averaging 20+ ppg, 55%+ from the field.
Niko: Jordan never missed the playoffs with the BUlls though they had an under .500 record. Yes Wooldridge was a great player those early Bulls teams had talent but did not play well much like the Lakers of the late 90's
For three straight seasons (92, 93 and 94) Dennis Rodman averaged 18.7, 18.3 and 17.3 RPG. In the modern era with the amount of possesions teams play and the amount of shots they take this is far more impressive than any rebounding numbers that Chamberlain, Russell or Moses Malone had.
Hakeem Olajuwon averaged a combined 6 steals and blocks per game in five consecutive seasons! 2.6 SPG and 3.4 BPG in '89, 2.1 SPG and 4.6 BPG in'90, 2.2 SPG and 3.9 BPG in '91, 1.8 SPG and 4.3 BPG in '92 and 1.8 SPG and 4.2 BPG in '93.
Dennis Rodman rebounding percentage... just check out this graphic:
Damn, I was going to mention Rodman. 30% of all available rebounds is nuts considering there are ten guy's on the court and many of them are also pretty much dedicated to rebounding. By comparison, D. Howard's best year he grabbed 21% of available rebounds. That's a truly elite number, but it pales in comparison to Rodman's. And Rodman had years being in the 25%+% range.
By the way. That graph is awesome. People should go to it. You have to click play on it (which I didn't realize immediately). It shows all the major players and their rebounding percentages over time. Not to spoil things, but lets say you will notice when Rodman comes into the league. It will blow your mind a little.
Jordan averaged 43.7ppg on over 50% shooting against a team some consider one of the best ever after coming off a near season-long foot injury in the 85-86 post-season.
To all the people who talk about Wilt averaging 50ppg, that's all well and good, but Jordan's career scoring average is still the same despite that, and it would have been higher if he hadn't played with the Wizards.
NBADRAFT.NET Has Over 1500 Members..But only about 70 ever Comment or Post,Until the Mock Draft Contest..Then someone we never heard of always Win It....
Until he came out of retirement at age 38, Michael Jordan had only one game in which he failed to reach 10 points. He scored 8 during one game in the 85-86 season in which he was being limited to 15 minutes per game. During that stretch he had 10 games in which he tallied 8 or more steals in a single game.
The only time I ever got to watch Jordan live he scored...8 as a Wizard.
Rip Hamilton holds the record for most points scored in an NBA game without making a single field goal...
On January 6th, 2005, vs. Memphis, Rip Hamilton went 0/10 from the field, 0/1 from deep, and 14/14 from the free throw line to net 14 points on 0 made field goals
Hamilton and Orlando Wooldridge are getting buried in this thread. Remember Wooldridge was on that Denver team that gave up 130 a game then he played with Jordan and was under .500 lol.
wilt averaged 49 minutes per game one season(the year he scored 50ppg). He must have basically never left the court and then add in a handful of overtime games where he got an additional 5 minutes and there you go.
