Hey, haven't spoken with you in a while. I've been busy doing work for nbastats.net so I haven't focussed so much on the Russell-Wilt spreadsheet. I flew out to California to visit my campus a few weeks ago, but the SF Chronicle editions that would be useful were on reserve and had to be ordered.
I can verify the info in the Wilt spreadsheet is correct if you want to add it to the spreadsheet (as for the block/steal/turnover numbers, those were cited directly by newspapers; any estimates that seem inconsistent with actual game film are due to error by statkeepers/reporters (who would continue to report the same numbers after they became official, as they were already recorded).
BTW I do have a mechanism for accessing newspapers from Oakland, which might be helpful for the matchups during Wilt's years in SF. I'll PM or e-mail you the details later.
Cool list! I just went to rep you but it appears that feature is gone. It's still a couple of weeks away, but it would be incredible if Kobe could get to at least 15 (as he'd hold the top two spots in the modern era alone, two years apart).
You know where I can find game logs for Rick Barry, George Gervin, and Adrian Dantley's 1980-81 season?
Basketball reference game logs only go back to 1981-82.
HE probably will be. Kobe's longevity is overrated. Like 8 of his seasons don't even count because he was a nobody. I always lol when people say he is in his 17th season, lol like he was even good for half of them.
You win.......the award for biggest ISH idiot of 2012.........smart to save this retarded post for the end of the year just to clinch it
