Wilt Chamberlain is considered as one of the single greatest players in the history of sport. He played fourteen years in the NBA and set some of the most iconic records in the game.
At 7-foot-1 freak Wilt was dominant in the game won two NBA titles in his career and his records speak much more than that. Wilt won four MVP's and holds 68 individual records to his name.
One record that will probably never be broken is 50 Points Per Game. Greats like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, or LeBron James have not even come anywhere near the record. Scoring fifty points in any game is tough. The legend had 118 fifty-point games in his career. Even now it can be compared with the others who stand behind him in the record list.
The majority of Wilt’s 50 point games came between 1960-65 when he was playing for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors. During the 1961-62 season, Chamberlain averaged a staggering 50.4 points per game, which is also the highest average in a single-season.
Michael Jordan stands second in the list at 31 times in his career, while Kobe Bryant falls short of Jordan with 25 fifty-point games. Chamberlain has more 50-point games than the rest of the Top 5 combined.
On the whole, there was no other person who dominated the NBA like Chamberlain did.
