10 in 71 is damn impressive though...considering Shaq has 12 in almost triple the games

Yes, but what does this have to do with MJ.

Anyway the record for most 40+ point games in the playoffs is 38. And most 50+ point games is 8.

Impressive by Wade for sure, but not necessarily a good sign for MIA.

he was using it as a dig against those laker fans who think kobe is either equal or better than mj.using that to show how he isnt

I wouldn't say its a bad sign for the Heat, 3 out of 4 of those players have won the Finals, and all 4 have made the finals. Wade had 2 of his 40 point games in the Finals vs the Mavs.

You're just looking for a reason to rip AI. I know how you work.

Its a shame that when I ask for facts about efficiency, somewhere an AI fan gets offended.

Sorry, It's just that I've noticed a pattern from you anytime AI is mentioned in a thread.

Efficiency is overrated. There's many intagibles that should be taken into account when judging a player.

40...

Lebron averages near 40....

Kobe has 10 now and Lebron 8.

Lebron's not there?

I swear he had like 3 this playoffs alone.

I think he can past Shaq in 2-3 years.

Chronz

Wow I cant believe I missed that, did the AI homer just downplay efficiency. Hey bud I know its not your fault because youve followed AI your whole life but, EFFICIENCY IS WHAT WINS GAMES.

What about most career attempted 40pt games. Games in which the player chucked enough where he shouldve scored 40 but to no avail.

not really im sure wade, kobe, lebron, peirce etc.... go to guys can have as many but


iverson is different from all those guys.. hes a straight up ballhog and only cares about himself not that hard when he shot 30-40 times a night.. i dont see how u find it impressive

Kobe usually doesn't score much in PlayOffs...

DW has a great start...

You have to consider that a lot of Kobe's games in the playoffs, he came off the bench (first two seasons). After that, Kobe started to develop. Kobe didn't turn into the player he was today until the Lakers started winning championships... and even then, he was the second option to Shaq.

A lot of that had to do with the 2001 postseason. AI was a straight up BEAST and the singlular reason why Philly was even in the Finals and actually won a game against the Lakers who were undefeated in the postseason to that point.

You have to consider the level of talent he has played with through his career. I do agree though that instead of developing the talent, he chose to score himself. Wrong mindset, and he was a ballhog, but it doesn't mean he wasn't an effective scorer. He definitely was.

Agree.

Iversons Career playoff FG% is .401 compared to
Shaqs .564
D Wade .474
Lebron .452
Kobe .447

Imagine how many 40 point games Shaq would have if he took as many shots as Iverson.

Thats really not what Im implying because its virtually impossible for Shaq to ever get that many shots, just that the 40pt threshold is biased to chuckers. When an efficient monster like Shaq is on that list is a testament to his dominance though.
