Greatest season by a player?
 
Here is my candidate;

Shaquille O'Neal, 1999-00 season.

In regular season;
29.7 ppg / 13.6 rpg / 3.8 apg / 3.0 bpg / .574 fg / 33.8 eff
All-Star Game MVP
MVP (with 0.998 share, got 120 first place of available 121)
Made that Lakers a 67W team.
1st at ppg / 2nd at rpg / 3rd at bpg / 1st at fg%

In playoffs;
30.7 ppg / 15.4 rpg / 3.1 apg / 2.4 bpg / .566 fg / 33.8 eff
FMVP (38.0 ppg / 16.7 rpg / 2.3 apg / 2.7 bpg / .611 fg / 33.3 eff agains the Pacers)


Duncan and Shaq are my favourites players and I think Duncan's 2002-03 season can be mentioned. IMO, Duncan's 2003 playoff run was slightly better than Shaq's 2000 playoff run but Shaq dominated the regular season more.


What do you guys think? Who is your candidate about it?

If Lebron can keep up this kind of play and maybe even score some more points in the playoffs than he is right now, would you agree with me it's up there with the best seasons of all time?

Awards are important. Winning is important. Like you mentioned; playoffs important. I mean look at Bird's numbers in 1987-88 season. Even better than LeBron's current numbers (at least equal) but no-one put some special weight to 1987-88 season in Bird's career.

Hakeem Olajuwon in '94, only player in league history to be crowned MVP, DPOY and Fina÷s MVP in the same season.

Yeah I forgot to add that, I meant assuming Miami wins the title and he's the Finals MVP and (unless anything crazy happens) he should have the regular season MVP on lock right now.

Fred Hickman, from CNN, chose AI for the MVP vote that year and took major heat for it. :oldlol:

Yeah, he has a shot. But he need to be the closer in the playoffs. Also he will get criticized coz of his team. His numbers and performance can be exceptional but the result won't be. Because he is a part of the best team.

And Michael Jordan was playing baseball that year.

Michael Jordan 1990 season:

33.6ppg on 52.6%FG, 37.6% 3FG, 84.8%FT,6.9 rebs, 6.3 assists, 2.8 steals, 0.7 blocks, 3 turnovers.....55% EFG.

POST SEASON: (16 games)

36.7ppg on 51.4%FG, 32.0% 3FG, 83.6%FT, 7.2 rebs. 6.8 assists, 2.8 steals, 0.9 blocks, 3.5 turnovers....53.3% eFG%.


Took the Bulls to Game 7 vs. the eventual champion Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals....good chance of advancing to the Finals and beating Portland who struggled against the Pistons losing 4 out of 5 games.....unfortunately Jordan was the only one who showed up as the Bulls turned in one of the greatest choke jobs in NBA history:

Box score of that game here:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/...006030DET.html

Jordan put this team of young players on his back and and carried them as far as anyone could, only to be FAILED when the pressure was at its peak...a downer to one of the greatest seasons performed in history.


And Jordan wasn't even voted MVP this season....

It's a damn shame that the Bulls didn't make the Finals that year.

I consider this season Jordan's best non-finals making playoff run...

Wilt Chamberlain had the best all around year.

Regular Season
24.1 ppg 24.6 rebounds 7.8 Assist .683% FG%

Post Season
21.7 ppg 29.1 rebounds 9 assist .579FG%

Lead the regular season and the post season in assist, rebounds, FG% (somebody had a better FG% in the playoffs). Was 5th in scoring - regular season.

Very likely lead the league in blocks both regular season and playoffs.

Would have been DPOY and FMVP.
