Default Re: How Kobe stacks up vs other 30000 point scorers

Comparing bigs to guards is not fair to the guards. Bigs score more efficiently, and that is incredibly obvious.

IMO it would be much more interesting to see how many games it took each of these guys to hit 30k. I'd assume Wilt was like 10 years or something lol.

The problem I see with that is that you're not accounting for age or injuries. For example, Durant is currently in his 6th season; by the end of Jordan's complete 6th season, he was averaging 32.6ppg on 59.4%(vs Durant's 26.3 on 58.5%).
If we use your method of using a player's previous 4 seasons to extrapolate efficiency for that player's next x points, where x = (30,000 - current total points scored), which I think is a horribly inaccurate way of estimating that figure, we get 33.1ppg on 60.7% for Jordan, and 28.5ppg on 60.5% for Durant.

Using your method of calculation on Jordan we get 2199, which is obviously too low. The reason behind the discrepancy here is father time(age + injuries). By the way, I got a different value for Durant than you did - I got 21035 to your 20652, so one of us is off.

Because of modern medicine, and the fact that they entered the league at a younger age, Durant and Lebron will almost certainly have better longevity than Jordan, but that doesn't mean that your method isn't flawed, it is, and considerably so.

That should tell you something about these so-called "stong[er], faster athletes". Why is it that in a league full of recently evolved, super humans, can a man in the last phase of his career not only run with them, but outpace them?

That alone should give you an indication that the league isn't any stronger or faster than it was before. Kobe is doing now, what he's always done.

Despite what all the 13-year-old scientists are attempting to posit, humanity has not evolved in the last 15 years.

If anything, this older version of Kobe is making it seem like everyone else devolved.

25.0 ppg year 6

His average for these 7 years were 15.2 ppg

After averaging 23.3 ppg over the past 3 years, you would expect him to average 15.2 ppg in year 8?



What the hell are you talking about? I told you that Jordan's FGA to points ratio got worse as he got better and the noticeable jump came the year the Bulls won their first title.


So, what's to say that Durant keeps up his recent efficiency? That's what I'm saying. Are you dense?

Tru that.

Congrats Kobe

and if Lebron passes the milestone, ill give congrats there too.

Its a game with guys just like us playing (with allot more money)

Too much drama/hate/jealousy/BS about Kobe.

thank you

A poster actually uses sensibility when he posts and everyone chooses to ignore it and only replies to trolls. That's ISH/haters in a nutshell.

Yep so Kobe wasn't as efficient as MJ nor as dominant as Chamberlin.

Amazing revelations these are.
