Still #5 in 40 pointers and #2 in 50 pointers while playing 2/3 of his games in his non high scoring seasons. How sucky...

If anything, it shows you why he was a better scorer than his average indicates.

LOL at all the idiots in this thread who fail to realise that there was one less playoff round back when Wilt played. Also, the first round was best of 5 back then.

So the number of 40+ (etc) point games in the playoffs is irrelevant.

It's an unfair comparison.

Nice try though

Rick Barry's high amount of 40 point games as compared to his 30 point games; I wonder how much that had to do with his attitude.

Wilt played in 160 playoff games still. Just saying. Jordan played in 179 for comparison.

Again Jordan was a scorer his whole career. Wilt was a scorer who intentionally cut his scoring after leading the league in his first 7 years.
Furthermore even in his scoring years his scoring goes down in playoffs but it was because Wilt need to do everything on court not just scoring points for his team to win. If you have read what Cousy after game 7 in 62 EDF you will understand this. Both Russell and Wilt played great and have similar stat numbers but if you look at Wilt's 50 ppg average comparing to his 22 points you can say that Russell shut down Wilt. In fact Wilt was praised after the game for playing terrific defensive game by his opponents.

And I am not diminishing Jordan's achievements as he had all the rights to claim that he is the best basketball player ever.

However the point I wanted to make was that just citing the numbers of games played in that particular case is irrelevant - a better comparison will be to check the percentage of 30, 40, 50pts games in wilt's scoring years against the percentage of Jordan's.

Well you can't compare them at all because Wilt's era isn't as good as Jordan's. And I know about him changing roles in the mid 60s from an offensive player to defensive anchor. Even when you compare the regular season numbers ro the playoff numbers when he was the main man on offense, his scoring dropped. Anyways when I looked at the numbers that people had for Wilt's 30 point playoff games, I saw one had Wilt at 40 and another at 42. Do you know how much he has?

I found out how many Rick Barry had and added it on the list. He had 48 30 point playoff games which is a high amount and corresponds with his high amount of 40 point playoff games.
