I'd say Wilt's 100 points... His 55 rebounds in one game... and even more so... his 50.4 ppg average for a whole year! Plus he averaged 22.9 RPG over a 14 year span.

Scottie Skiles record of 30 assists is very impressive, but lots of people came close http://nbahoopsonline.com/History/Le...alsblocks.html

Why do you say the Hit Streak is so tough to break? I always hear of players on long hit streaks, I mean at least players are coming comparable, no one is even close to Stockton's Records.



Also, I don't think anyone will be dominant enough to score 100pts again.

They don't really come close. Players get hyped for crossing the 30 game mark....they still have to hit almost double the amount of games. Rose got the closest somewhere over 40. I don't don't one other players has gone over 40 (2 at most).

Fact is that they did not do it..."could have" does not mean sh*t! They did not do it because it was so difficult to do. Any record can be broken, but this one is going to be nearly impossible.

Yeah, 50ppg record is going to hard to beat.



But who knows, maybe in 50 years, all NBA teams will be scoring 200 points per game, and that might not be too hard.

The reason the hitting streak is amazing is because how easy it is to snap a hitting streak. Four at-bats, and you face a multitude of different pitchers, defenses who can make great plays, walks... in the Show it's easy to hit piss out of a ball four times in a row and still go oh-fer.

It was totally within reach for Karl... Clearly not untouchable.

Don't count on it. Its rare to see a player to score 70 or more points in a game.

Can't believe no one has mentioned the ultimate unbreakable record:

Cy Young's 511 wins. Lets say a pitcher were to defy all odds and pitch for 25 years. He would have to average over 20 wins a year to even sniff the record.

Will never be broken.

You just pwned this thread.

To think Roger just passed 350 wins. Wow. I mean people are wondering if we'll ever get another 300 game winner.

Lakers 33 straight wins.

Nice call on the cricket by the way, almost 100 runs a game? That's amazing....

I just did some quick math. Say a pitcher starts his MLB career at age 22 (a favourable age) and averages 18 wins (amazing with injuries and bad years), he will hit 300 wins during his 17th year, which would put him at 39.

That means he'd still have to pitch another 11 years or so at that pace to equal Cy Young.
