12/14/2021 –

is only two triples away from exceeding 2,973 in Ray allen and become the greatest tripler in the history of the NBA. You can do it this morning at the Madison Square Garden in New York, the most important sports venue on the planet. To their 33 years He still has time to put the figure even further away from the lowly mortals who don’t have his toe. James harden, the active player closest to him, takes 2,509. Curry’s will be one of the toughest records to break in the NBA. Here are a few others that seem impossible to beat.

Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 Points

The quintessential NBA record. On March 2, 1962, the mythical pvot, at that time in the Philadelphia Warriors he scored 100 points in the triumph of his team over the New York Knicks by 169-147. Since then, the player who has stayed closest to that historic record was the late Kobe bryant, which in January 2006 noted 81 to the Raptors.

Bill Russell’s 11 rings

Bill russell I won 11 rings with Celtics: in 1957, all between 1959 and 1966, 1968 and 1969. An achievement difficult to imagine today, where no franchise has been able to maintain such prolonged dominance in the NBA. The dictatorship of the Boston makes many of those who played in those teams lead this ranking, but no one reaches the height of the legendary pvot. Without having played in those Celtics, the one who comes closest is Robert Horry, who won seven titles: two with the Rockets, three with the Lakers and two others with Spurs. Active, LeBron James, with four, is the one who has the most.

The 73-9 of the Warriors

The Warriors of the 2015-16 season achieved the best record in history by win 73 of 82 games of the regular League, exceeding the balance of Michael Jordan Bulls 72-10 in the 95-96 course.

Michael Jordan’s 30.12 average points

Michael Jordan retired with a scoring average of 30.12 points, the best ever in the NBA. And that in the two tip campaigns with the Wizards he lowered his record with 22.9 and 20.0 on average. He was 10 times the top scorer of the season. The active players closest to him are Kevin Durant, with 27.08, and LeBron James, with 26.99. They would have to make some beastly entries in their final years of careers to hunt down ‘Air.

Chamberlain’s 55 rebounds

Yes again Chamberlain around here. Now catching rebounds until I hit 55 from a November 1960 game that measured its Philadelphia Warriors before the Celtics. The active player with the most catches in a game is Kevin love, with 31. Throughout his career, Chamberlain took 23,924. The one that accumulates the most among those who still play is Dwight Howard, with 14,405. Far away.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 38,387 points

In the history of the NBA, nobody has more points that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, that among the Bucks and Lakers reached the 38,387. Of the most important records in the League, it is perhaps the most within reach. LeBron James accumulates 35,787. He’s 2,600 points from the mythical pvot. At an average of 1,300 per season it will take two to catch up. In other times, it would be an affordable number, but the forward of the Lakers He has been losing games in recent campaigns and is just a few days away from his 37th birthday.

John Stockton’s 15,806 assists

Short term, no one will overcome the 15,806 assists with which John Stockton retired. The closest active pursuer of the legendary Jazz point guard is Chris Paul, which adds up to 10,530. If he gave 800 per season, which is outrageous, it would take him more than six courses to reach the top of the all-time rankings. In a single match, the record is also hard to beat. It is in the hands of Scott skiles, who, on December 30, 1990, playing with the Magic, reached the 30 basket passes. Active, Rajon rondo I arrived once at 25 and another to 24, the same ones that he has distributed Russell westbrook twice.

The Lakers’ 33 wins in a row

The Lakers they did not lose between November 5, 1971 and January 7, 1972. In total, that team with Wilt chamberlain (yes, again), Jerry West and Elgin Baylor, sum 33 consecutive victories until I lost to the Bucks from Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The streak that came closest to him was 27 triumphs followed by Heat in 2013 with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in their ranks.

Cal Bowdler’s seven fouls

The name of Cal bowdler I won’t tell you anything. And it is normal. But he owns one of the toughest records to break in the NBA, as his was due to human failure in the chain. On November 13, 1999, Hawks power forward committed seven fouls in a game against the Blazers. Neither the referees, nor the scorer’s table, nor the opposing team realized that they had scored six. He kept playing and was eliminated after the seventh. It was of no use to his team, which lost 131-95.

Elmore Smith’s 17 plugs

In October 1973, Elmore smith I built a wall in front of the hoop of the Lakers. In just one week, he put 10 blocks in one game, 14 in the next, which was already an NBA record, and 17 in a third before Blazers, beating its own record. No one has gotten over it. That is, if the plugs had been counted in the time of Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell, the record will not be yours.
