    LeBron might get that 50 one day, great scorer regardless. Even Hakeem Olajuwon, who's the all-time ppg leader for centers in the playoffs, doesn't have a 50 point game in the playoffs. Maybe Durant will get one too ?

    It is an exclusive list, though, only 20 have done it and only 4 players have every done it multiple times (Jordan - 8, Wilt - 4, Iverson - 3, West - 2).

    I guess we all get defensive over these things... it's just nature.
    I wasn't meaning you when I said people were getting too defensive

    Neither. He's not a great scorer.

    The only way Durant gets 50 is if more than half of them come from free throws.

    Until his team comes across the Heat and gets dominated. I remember even the refs couldn't save him in their last matchup,

    Lebron doesn't shoot the ball much regular season or playoffs unlike chucker Kobe whose fg attempts per game increases in the playoffs yet almost all of his 50 point games are in the regular season.

    Kobe regular season:

    25.5 ppg (19.6 fga), 5.3 rpg, 4.8 apg, 45.5% fg

    Kobe playoffs:

    25.6 ppg (20.5 fga), 5.1 rpg, 4.7 apg, 44.8% fg




    Lebron regular season:

    27.5 ppg (20 fga), 7.2 rpg, 6.9 apg, 49.1% fg

    Lebron playoffs:

    28.1 ppg (20 fga), 8.6 rpg, 6.7 apg, 47.2% fg

    That said, in the modern era at least, LeBron type 25+,10+,10+ triple doubles are pretty rare. 27 since '86 (when Bkb-Ref started counting) by 14 different players:

    6: LeBron
    3: Magic
    2: Barkley, Bird, Baron Davis, Jordan, Payton, Rondo.
    1: Steve Nash, Chris Paul, Paul Pierce, Ralph Sampson, Isiah Thomas, James Worthy
    http://www.basketball-reference.com/...=pts#stats::28

    There have been only 19 playoff 50 point games in that span, 8 from Jordan, 3 from Iverson and no one else more than once.
    http://www.basketball-reference.com/...=pts#stats::28
    What about 15 15 15 triple doubles? I wonder if 11 11 11 triple doubles are more rare than 25 10 10.
