How is Kobe Bryant the correct answer to Points (game, 1963)? Wilt Chamberlain holds the single game record with 100 points.

I thought of ever known three point shooter except for Ray. I thought of Korver, Curry, Bird, and Miller and completely forgot about Ray. Maybe its because he didnt play this season

Then it would make you equally angry to note that in the modern era, the player with the most championship rings at 7, is Robert Horry.

Sad that only 76 percent of people knew Warriors won 73 games this season. See my name?

dont let that distract you from the fact that the Warriors won 73 games only to lose a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals

Because the refs and Lebron cheated. The League wanted Lebron to win a title in Cleveland.

With Green not suspended, the Warriors win.

What was the requirement for oldest player? Did they have to play a certain number of games or minutes to qualify? Because I know a couple coaches have been activated out of desperation who were older.

Second that^^^ BUT when he played, it was technically NOT the NBA since the Basketball Association of America didn't OFFICIALLY become known as the NBA until 1949. It was in 1948 that Hickey played in a couple of games when the league was still known as the BAA.

I had read somewhere that Manute Bol was probably in his fifties but he didn't know how old he actually was. He supposedly asked the village elders where he was from, when he was born, and they said in the summer time. I don't know if that is true or not but it makes for a good story regardless.

They don't count as coaching wins. There are two different questions: one for most as a player and one for most as a coach.

Yes, you are the only one. We know about Reed, Frasier, Monroe, Barnett, Debusschere, Cazzie, Bradley, Monroe, and Bibby. But who the heck is Fil Jaxon?
