Letís base this after the Will/Russell Era. We know what was done in the era while Wilt Chamberlain played. 100 points in a single game, 48.5 minutes per game, 55 rebounds in a single game, 23,924 rebounds in his career, etc etc etc. I think its a given that none of those records (maybe with the exception of the 100 point game) will never be broken. Lets say from 1970 onwards.

Which NBA record will be the hardest to break?

These are some that come to mind.

MJís most seasonís while leading the league in scoring of 10 comes to mind.

Scott Skilesí 30 assists in a single game as well

The Phoenix Suns record of 107 first half points

Los Angeles Lakers winning streak of 33 consecutive games

Boston Celtics home record of 40-1

What do you guys think?

MJ's record and the 107 points in the first half looks the hardest

Jordan's 63 points

I'd say the 33 game win streak... No team in history has really even come close, and in this era there are just too many good, competitive teams.

Easily the rebound record (55)...no one has even come CLOSE to it, and I don't think anyone will. Players can't even get to 30 now days.

Toughest record to break AFTER the Chamberlain/Russell era.

MODERN NBA PLEASE we know about Wilt's unbreakable records. The guy was a walking record book.

kobe could break if he continues at this pace for another 7-8 years but i dont see it happening.

no actually reads the posts. They just look at the title and answer.


Skiles 30 assists is an impressive feat.


I think the knick's record of going 0-18 from beyond the arc will never be broken.

:p

I was waiting for someone to mention that record. Prior to this season some might have said the 9-72 record by the 1973 sixers but i think NJ has shown that that myth can indeed be a reality.

kareems career points

Durant and Lebron can both beat this. Kobe also has a small chance. This is obviously a health/longevity record as much as anything else, though.

If Lebron wanted to be an *** (which he might), he could take 40-50 shots and break Kobe's 81.

30 assists will eventually be broken. Hell a rookie (Collison) had 20 last night.

I think the consecutive wins record will be broken by some team in the next decade (we'll see what kind of superteam is created this summer...), and Jordan's consecutive games of 25+ points streak that Durant just made a run at will be broken. Most likely by KD.

The rest seem pretty daunting, but as long as all rules are equal (which along with the lack of size/skill by the lower 90% of the NBA, this is the reason why the old records are what they are), somebody always finds a way.

Ok so what do you think are the records when can be broken?

Well Cavs almost went 40-1... but imo 81 would be hard to top.

Swashcuff
03-09-2010, 10:37 PM
Elmore Smith's record of 17 blocks in a game could be breakable.

Yeah but in order to break it a team has to have a perfect record at home. It'll be really tough.

Crawfard has 26 four point plays. The most of any nba player ever. I guess he could beat it. The number to beat might end up being 34 or something

Records are meant to be broken. 33 games is a hell of a number, but lets not forget the Rockets won 20+ not too long ago, with a injured Yao I believe.

Stockton's career assist record is insane, as hard or harder to break than many of Wilt's seemingly impossible records.

What do you guys think?

Wow, when did this happen, I'm now informed. :facepalm:

That's ridiculous. I want to see a highlight or something.

Stockton's career assist and career steals numbers are untouchable. The guy was still in the top ten in assists at 40 years old. I can't see anyody being able to reach his peak averages let alone finish in the top ten in assists at 40.

Next to that I would guess Rodman's 7 consecutive rebounding titles.

With the new "year after highschool" thing in effect, the youngest to "x" amount of "category" (pts, rebs, asts, blks, stls) will probably remain untouched.

Jerry Sloan's wins with a single team and tenure as a coach with a single team will remain untouched.

K well in that case, the MJ record for most consecutive scoring titles. There's no standout best scorer in the league now....it's all arguable, from Kobe, to Lebron, to Melo, to Durant...

yeah but still without a title. His tenure and wins could somewhere down the line be touchable but so long without winning a ship and the org not giving up on the coach will never happen again.

The bulls record of most wins over 3 seasons will be tougher. I don't see any team again being able to play at that high standard over a 3 year period.

203-43 (1995Ė96-1997Ė98)

Well the first one that sticks out in my mind is MJ's career 30.1 per game...I don't think I'll ever see that again. Also one amazing record I know I will never see broken hasn't even been mentioned yet and that is AC Green's consecutive games played with 1,192!

i was nodding my head and agreeing with you untill the last 3 words. I would like to say exactly what he did but change good competitive teams to mediocre, underachieving and flat our horrible teams
