Look up Carter's career numbers in terms of scoring and playoff and season averages.

so, he never has been a lethal scorer. He may score, but not lethaly. If that makes any sense.

Pierce isnt a longshot dude. If u have Carter on their..pierce is just as good as a scorer if not better than Carter.

Earl "The Pearl" Monroe How is he not on that list?!

Carter makes the list because his career regular season avg. is 24ppg and his playoff avg. is 26ppg. I definitely believe Petit and Bird belong on the list, I forgot to put them on the list.

The definition of lethal in NBA terms would be for example like Kobe scoring 4 strait 50+ games or the 81
Forget the averages!

Wilt
Kobe
Jordan
B.King

That's all in my list.

I should have changed the thread to the most prolific scorers in NBA history. Olajuwon belongs on that list.

You are right, the most lethal scorers are Wilt, Kobe, Jordan, Baylor, Iverson, R. Barry, etc..

great list.. but what about Reggie Miller, Vinny "the microwave" Johnson, Michael Cooper? You said lethal right? not just who put most points in their career.

Is this in their primes or in all around careers?

Because if this is in their primes then it should come down to three players: Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant.

Wilt
Jordon

How dare you leave Hakeem the Dream Olajuwon. Have you checked his career points? Mitch Richmond, come on.

If you put Pierce there, then you have to put Arenas there too. IMO both, Arenas and Pierce don't belong there.

Reggie Miller definately deserves to be up there. No, his career PPG isn't spectacular, but there's more to being lethal than just putting up monster numbers (A lot of these high scorers also put up tons of shots) Miller was one of the greatest clutch performers of his time. To me, that's lethal.

If by lethal you mean unstoppable or dangerous, then the list should be cut into 5 or 6:

- Jordan
- Kobe
- Wilt
- Shaq
- Iverson

They're the guys who could and would score at will, hence making them lethal and in turn, unstoppable. Not guys who averaged 25PPG

Larry Bird and Manu Ginobili are missing from your list also remove Dwaye Wade then it's pretty good

This would apply to guys who have multiple scoring titles IMO and who averages are pretty good.

Wilt
Jordon
Iverson

There you go.

Why isn't Kobe/Pierce/T-Mac.. behind Mike and Wilt? BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN AS CONSISTENT AS IVERSON. LeBron is creeping up though... It's only his 5th year though compared to iverson's 12... He has a good six-seven years left for us to determine this
