I hope anyone who has posted in this thread now feels like a complete idiot.

Didn't Pierce drop 46 vs. the Sixers in game 5 of 2002???

You know Lebron stans and their excuses are always going to be hilarious, but this wow, lol, if you thought Lebron retards whining about Lebron having no help on the Heat wasn't enough proof of how mentally sick this phagotts are, now they have issues with the numerical system...

So? Kobe's only had one, and that was in double OT. And it was exactly 50.

Does Kareem have a 50pt playoff game? Shaq? Bird? Hakeem?
Not everyone chucks up 40 FGA in playoffs games like Jordan did.

How is this challenge ? If anything, you challenged me last time in Kblaze's thread about Joel Anthony's situation of shooting a non-contested 18 footer vs Dirk getting 12-18 foot jump shot contested... and the key was they knew that someone's life was on the line.

And stop with the exaggerations. If you want to really go at it, make a poll about who's the most annoying on here, you or me. Let's see who's more annoying.
woah...last I knew you guys got along.

And for the OP, yeah, but he's had the 49, 48, 47, etc. The same way a 25/11/9 game is no different than a 25/10/10 to any normal person (even though one is a triple double and one isn't), to me 49 and 50 are almost of no difference.

Yeah, he doesn't have any, and I guess its an unusual occurrence for someone this good who's played in this many playoff games if that's what you meant. If that somehow makes him any less of a player to you, you're entitled to that opinion too, but I don't see the point in so many people getting too defensive over it.

Any of you see Sleepy floyds 50 point game? They used to show bits of it on NBA tv 10-11 years ago. He had I think 29 points in one quarter vs the Lakers and was straight doing work. He was crossing people up, and hitting runners in traffic, and driving at will. Young Sleepy was no laughing matter. He was solid on the rockets too.

I think he dropped it primarily on Magic. Guy couldn't guard quick PGs. See Timmy Hardaway doing work on him in either the 1990 or 1991 series.

Anyway, 50 point games are much more rare in the post season. It's quite a feat IMO and a better judge of a caliber of scorer. It's more difficult to drop 50 in a playoff game than it is say 60 in a regular season game.

Think about it, less possessions, more controlled possessions, defenses playing their absolute best, supreme focus across the board on both teams, more pressure, higher stakes.

LeBron and Iverson are arguably the best playoff scorers since MJ left. As evident by the amount of their 40 and 50 point games. Iverson was a gunner, Bron gets his more in the flow and isn't merely just a scorer.

Here's a portion of it. It was an amazing game, showed you the kind of scoring ability the guy had.

He's gotten close a few times. Hell in that game 1 against Orlando in 2009 he had 49. 1 more free throw or made shot and he gets 50.

Default Re: LeBron has never had a 50 point playoff game?

Lebron rarely has big scoring games - just not his style. His strength has always been the all around game and very consistent high scoring games. Sure a lot of guys got triple doubles, but very few guys have ever averaged 28ppg in the playoffs. That's really elite company. Jordan/Iverson/Lebron/Durant/ and somebody I'm not seeing I guess? Very few guys have averages of points rebounds assist averages in the playoffs that average over 40 as well. So what if he doesn't get it.

This was a while back. Were cool now and we peaced it out here (you were even there too):

http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...t=52094&page=7

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.

You're leaving out Kobe. He averaged over 28 ppg 3 years straight en route to 3 finals appearances. If you want to include older players, Shaq did 28+ ppg during the Lakers' 3 peat
