This marks the decline of his career as well
He had 16 in OT, which is a record for most points in an overtime period. A lot of his points came with Kobe guarding him too.

No, Bob Cousy listed for 50+ points playoffs but not 40+.
Hard to believe Bob had a 50+ performance but never scored 30+ points in another playoff game..

Yea I remember the And1 jumper he got on Kobe. There was a point in time where Gilbert was my favorite player to watch, just because he looked like he wasn't SUPPOSED to score that much, he just willed himself to high point games. Every made shot of his looked like an accident

I think the above stats alone is enough evidence to show people who are/were the greatest playoffs performer of all time..

No it's accurate, there's just a cutoff after five 40 point games. Otherwise the list would go on for a while. If I remember right Rondo snuck in a 40 point playoff game

Just so you know. Wilt was a volume scorer only for his first 7 seasons.

After that he spent 3 years as an all-round player - a triple double player.

And after he missed a season with a knee injury, he spent his last 4 years as a defensive player (a la Tyson Chandler). Adding his games as a Laker into his career totals is the fool's play. He wasn't even 3rd scoring option, he was a defensive specialist who often didn't even go to the offensive side of the court. They protected Wilt's knees as much as possible.

In those 7 years when he was a 'volume scorer', he played in 43 playoff games. He averaged 32.86 ppg. in playoffs.

In other words, in 43 games, he scored 40+ 10 times (3 of his high scoring games came after he had taken a different role). How many guys get 40 points every 4 games?
Wilt is the only one to do it.

I find that odd. If you scored 50 you scored 40 so it should count as a 40 pt game as well?

The list cuts off after 5. Meaning if you had 1, 2, or 3 40 point games it won't show. If that were the case then Rondo, Paul Pierce and Vince Carter would be on the list. Notice how VC is on the 50 point list

Dude fell off so bad though. One of the biggest dropoffs in production from one season to the other after '07.
