I actually just watched the highlights of this game

(raptors announcers)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsN3V...feature=relmfu

and while trying to debate which one was more impressive (wilt or kobe) I realized that Wilt's performance is not documented while Kobe's was from multiple angles as well as multiple perspectives.. I think that in itself made Kobe's a lot more difficult as regular season games weren't even broadcasted during Wilt's time. This along with a lot of multiple factors, as most of kobe's points came from 3s... which cannot be "spoon fed", as with feeding wilt in the paint. Once wilt had it within 5-8 feet there was essentially no stopping him. (as in 6'6 white PFs could literally not stop him)

haha idk if you're baiting jlauber or being serious...But I'll throw in my 2 cents. I don't understand how the multiple angles thing makes it more difficult than Wilts game...NO disrespect but that one makes ZERO sense to me...If your talking about pressure of being watched by tons of people...i bet if you were to ask Kobe he would of said that was by FAR the last thing on his mind...Idk if you've ever played basketball but when I did play some organized, I actually forgot there was a lot of people watching. (I say a lot loosely haha)

And your mistaken if you think Wilt was only shooting the ball within 5 to 8 feet...he had range out to 15/16 feet and used it quite often especially in those days. Which is evident by these 2 videos. GREAT touch when he was young and less bulky

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q98AC_8Cc1M

Not trying to shove wilt down your throat and I'm not trying to disrespect Kobes amazing performance, but like I said earlier

"Well, to be fair to Chamberlain, he had a 73 point game on 29-43 shooting, a 68 point game on 30-40 shooting, and a 66 point game on 29-35 (yes ... .829 shooting!) He also had a 43 point game on 18-18 shooting." -Jlauber




That, Jordans 63 against the celtics and Kobe's 62(?) against the mavs is more impressive than his 81 point game IMO- me"

because the rest of Kobe's team actually played well that game. Everyone outside of Kobe and George shot at least 50%. While only 2 people in Toronto shot over 50% and they werent even the leading scorers for their team.

Now I'm guessing you are going to reply and say Kobe got carried.

I give you props for proping that 05-06 Raptors, OP.

But yeah, people hating on the performance because of excuses like bad defense or whatever are idiots. I'm sorry, but 81 is 81. You don't let any player own your team like that.


What are the top 10 greatest game performances of all-time, according to the advanced metric?

I'm guessing.
1. MJ's 69-18 in 1990
2. Kobe's 81 in 2006
3. Malone's 61-18 on 21/26fg ( ) and 19-23 fts in 1990
4. MJ- 59 against cavs in 1988
5. D-Rob 71 in 1994
6. Dom Wilkins - 57 against MJ's bulls in 1986
7-8(tied) 2 games both by MJ - 54-14-6 19/31 fg 15/17ft against Cavs again in 1989
58 points against Nets in 1987
9. Kobe against portland in 2007 - 65 points
10. Reggie miller against Charlotte Hornets in 1992 - 57points


idk how they calculated it. But it's a shame Kobe's 62 in 3 quarters isn't amongst the top.
