Think about it this way. In the 9-year span from 1961 through 1969, there were 35 performances of 60+ points - 1 by Jerry West, 2 by Elgin Baylor, and 33 by Chamberlain. In the entire remaining history of the league, there have only been 29 more such performances by any other players. Talk about a truly dominant career!

actually his team scored somewhere around 160 that game. and it wasn't a complete blow out. same with kobe getting his 81, his team needed it, that was a comeback win.

Babe Ruth in 1921 had arguably the most dominant season of any player in North American team sports, and his career, for its time, was more dominating than Chamberlain's was in his time. Chamberlain had Russell as his counterpart - Russell superior on defense, Chamberlain on offense. Plus, Russell's Celtics had 11 championships in 13 years - unparalleled, even by any Yankees team. Chamberlain's teams had two. Ruth had no peer. The only other player who compares in dominance was Gretzky.

As a Celtics fan, I must say that Devin Booker's 70 weren't that impressive, considering the entire game was garbage time.

Let me rephrase what I said: Devin Booker's 70 points was the LEAST IMPRESSIVE 70-point game in NBA history, for three reasons: 1. Avery Bradley, the Celtics' #1 defender (at the time), did not play. He would have been guarding Devin Booker. 2. The Celtics were winning by around 30 points throughout the entire game, so they did not concern themselves with how many points Devin Booker was scoring. 3. At the end of the game, the Suns repeatedly intentionally fouled the Celtics, just so they could get the ball back and add to Booker's point total. Remember that I am a Celtics fan, and my "saltiness" is meant to be perceived with a layer of humor.
