That is like Kobe guarding Shaq in the post. It's a joke of an era. 6'6" - 6'8" centers

Darral Imhoff

Imhoff speaks on how the backup center was 6'8"...also that Wilt beasted him and forced him to foul four times almost immediately

It was the backup center at that

I was at the 81 point game, Kobe had 25 at the half and the Lakers were losing. I told my friend that Kobe would have to score at least 50 to win the game.......I had no freaking clue what was about to happen.

All I hear in this thread is "Wilt scored 100 points but let's pretend he didn't."

Are people high?

Records don't change just because time passes. Roger Maris' 61 home runs wasn't randomly disregarded after decades. And if anything, baseball changed a hell of a lot more than basketball...

It was my understanding Wilt's 100 points was a result of the other team fouling and boosting him/allowing him to score for the purpose to set that record, that's why I never give it as much credit.

When Wilt supposedly scored this many points it was a time when basketball was in it's infancy. Over the course of decades the game has been tweaked and rules have been implemented to create fair play.

Since 1978 and beyond is when the game of basketball was very similar to what it is today. The rules of past is no good in today's league. Therefore, many have accepted 81 points as the official scoring record in "modern" basketball.


If GAWDBe play in Wilt era he will score 200 points easily and fouled out every opposing player...

This. The way he got those last 30 points sometime in the 4th quarter was pretty sketchy too... it was a blowout, your team was feeding you the ball everytime, and apparently Wilt would just stand around under the other teams basket, just waiting for the ball to be given to him so he can just dunk it or lay it in. In addition the Warriors intentioanlly put in bench players around Chamberlain during the 4th quarter, with the sole purpose of fouling the Knicks so that they coudl get the ball back to Chamberlain as soon as possible. Not exactly basketball the way its meant tob e played.

Technically still the record, but I find Kobe's 81 more impressive.

That's because the knicks were purposely fouling the warriors except for their center and drove ball as slow as they could to deny Wilt getting his record. The game also didn't end in a blowout.

Either 100>81 But they're way better game then these 2 regular season games against scrubs.

Yep this, plus wilt was practically the entire team for the Sixers at that point. If you look at how many FG's he attempted per game it was like 60-80% of the team's entire FG attempts. Not to mention the average size of the NBA players was a couple of whole inches shorter, also players were obviously not as quick and athletic as they are today.

Plus kobe's 81 point game was entirely televised and recorded while people have to go on eye-witnesses testimony and accounts to remember Wilt's game. The fact that Kobe was playing in front of a couple of million viewers vs Wilt playing to a couple of thousand people at an arena has a lot to do with it as well.
