    Quick note, as a few others pointed out James Harden and the Rockets WON the game that he got his 60 point triple double in. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ll be in the corner working on my reading comprehension. Thanks.

    Dana Barros was legit. A pretty good shooter.

    Worth noting that even if you don't give Wilt any credit for offensive rebounds, blocks, or steals - all ludicrously underselling the man - and slap 5 turnovers on his games - again, underselling - he still comes out with the number 1 all time game score at 71.8.

    He also has numbers 6, 12, 14, and 17 locked in with 54.9, 53.5, 52.8, and 52 respectively while also tying Michael Jordan for number 8 with 54.7. And this is all with only a brief combing of his games, with a handicap of assuming no offensive rebounds, no blocks, no steals, and five turnovers a game.

    The moment you start removing those handicaps and giving him even conservative numbers, the numbers only grow more. We have 112 games with recorded block data, 112 games from all across his career. He averages 8.8 over those games. Even if we dismiss that as being typical and give him only 5 a game while giving him a 27 to 30% offensive rebound split, his games start to get out of control. Just as an example, we have one playoff game from his scoring days with block data reliably reported. We take that data, give him 10 of his 35 rebounds as being offensive, and still handicap him with a harsh 4 turnovers and no steals, the game score comes out to 46, sliding in at number 10 for Playoffs. And that's still giving no credit to the fact he had good hands and was known to get steals pretty well. Even giving him one moves him up to number 7.

    Just saying, for all the people saying this statistic proves no one is "even close" to Jordan. If this stat were calculated for Chamberlain properly, he would be all up and down the top 50 of both lists.

    So many stats showing how amazing MJ was and yet people trying to say that LBJ is the GOAT these days lmao. Imagine his stats if he didn't retire twice and come back to carry a garbage wizards team when he was well past his prime.

    more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version - maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window

    • Nuvendil
      Nuvendil Day ago

      Triple doubles don't get you all that much in this. I've tried calculating some crazy ones and it doesn't get you as much credit as you think. An example:

      Chamberlain had 42 pt on 18 of 18 shooting, 30 rb, ad 10a. Even assuming 8 of those 30 were offensive rebounds, it still comes out to 46.4, well bellow cracking the top 50. And even if he had shot perfect from the free throw line (6 for 6 instead of 6 for 14), it only gets to 49.6, tied for 26th all time. Even trying to estimate blocks for the game, putting in numbers ranging from 5 to 8 (a common range for him at the time), it gets to a max of 52 and a low of 49.9. In brief, to crack the top ten you need a lot of elements, but most importantly a lot of points

      Nuvendil Day ago

      I mean, it shouldn't even be honorable. Because even if you make the ludicrous assumption he had 0 offensive rebounds, 0 blocks, 0 steals, and 5 turnovers, it still comes out at 71.8

    One of my biggest regrets is I had tickets to Kobe's 81 point game, and I gave away the tickets. Even worse, the person I gave it to ended up not going. Makes me mad thinking about it now. But a slight consolation, I did get to see David Robinson score 74 points against the Clippers, probably one of the highest game scores I'm guessing, so there was that.

    From a Lakers and Kobe fan - MJ = GOAT. The numbers don’t lie. Wonder where Kobe’s final game landed on the list? Has any other player had a better final game in their career?
