The title won't allow it to be that long, but Dorrell Wright is the first player in NBA history to score more in his 7th season than his first 6 combined according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Big ups to Dorrel Wright :clap:

Golden State is the perfect fit for him, imo.

Nice. My opponent in Fantasy has him and all I could think about was " Who is this kid?!" He is a beast no doubt. Out of no where. Shows what hard work and a free flowing offense can do for ya! :clap:

I did something similar when I was in college.

I scored more in my senior year than in my Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years combined.

Sweet record. For anyone interested, he played 3147 minutes in 82 games, compared to 4124 in 211 his first 6 seasons. 1146 FGA compared to 1150 in his first 6 seasons. He actually shot below his career percentage, the reason he got more points off less shots was wayyy more 3FG than before - 194-516 this year compared to 73-212 his first 6 years.

Still, he's only holding onto the crown until Greg Oden's triumphant return in his late 20s.

Hahaha, nice bholly, I like that... Accept for the fact that he's already 47.

Good feat for him. Most Heat fans loved the guy and saw the potential. Wish it could have been realized in Miami, but glad he's showing it anyways.

I'm honestly not all that surprised about his year. This is a guy that shoots 46% over his career (not including this year) Golden State is the perfect place for him to get his shots. Playing with Wade for most of your career isn't a good thing for a wing player.

i'm not surprised, he was developed by the coaching staff that pat riley assembled...i know spoelstra isn't a top flight head coach but the heat have an amazing coaching staff
