What are some things that don't make sense to you in NBA history. Random stats or anything.

I found 3 things I was kinda surprised by...

During the 1961-1962 season, Bill Russell averaged 18.9 ppg and 23.6 rebounds per game. He led the Celtics to a 60 - 20 season.

During that same season Wilt Chamberlain averaged 50.4 ppg and 25.7 rebounds per game. He led the Philadelphia Warriors to a 49 - 31 record.

Bill Russell won MVP that season...

Bob Cousy is a career .375 shooter and never averaged double digit assists.

In the 1993-1994 season, Ron Harper averaged 20.1 ppg for the Clippers and had several more seasons averaging over 20 ppg. He was traded to the Bulls the next season and averaged 6.9 ppg. In 5 seasons with the Bulls, Harper only managed to score 20 or more points three times.

I can easily explain the Harper situation.

He was playing with Scottie and MJ who were getting the shots. Harp's role was defense and running that triangle as he did in his first yr of the Lakers 2000 championship team. Ron's offensive scoring abilities and the triangle offense didn't go hand-in-hand.

Those yrs he averaged 20+ ppg with Cavs and CLips was because he was the #1 scoring option for those teams without the Triangle offense.

The Los Angeles Lakers, where role players come to die. (Get injured after not getting injured with their previous franchise like Karl Malone, forget to play D like Gary Payton, but once he left the Lakers, he somewhat got his D back in Boston and Miami).

Send the Charlotte Hornets to N.O and inmediately award a new franchise ( bobcats) to Charlotte.

Wtf.....
They should have left them alone in their city and put the expansion team in N.O.

It made sense at the time.

Harder to get assists in those days and he was a piss poor shooter. Also regulation courts/balls didnt exists in those days so its not like they had the luxuries of today.


In the 1993-1994 season, Ron Harper averaged 20.1 ppg for the Clippers and had several more seasons averaging over 20 ppg. He was traded to the Bulls the next season and averaged 6.9 ppg. In 5 seasons with the Bulls, Harper only managed to score 20 or more points three times.
Harper was horribly inefficient after surgeries, he wasnt a good scorer.

Umm MJ wasnt playing his first year with the Bulls and they desperately needed scoring, he was just a bad scorer and on the decline.

Steve Nash has as many MVP awards as Kobe & Shaq combined
