Not so fast.

2 most awesome deeds that come to mind are Kobes 81 pt game (best in history since wilt 100 game didn't exist) and Fishers .4 shot. Both Lakers related.

Larry Bird 30 pts 12 rebs 10 assts 9 steals in only 3 quarters (didn't play the 4th because it was a blowout.)

When asked by reporters if he actually wanted to play in the 4th quarter to get the quadruple double, Bird said "What for? I already did enough damage to them."

The game was in February 18, 1985, Boston vs Utah.
