Best NBA Debut. Who had the best NBA rookie debut (as in best first game). I read this question on another board and people kept saying Jordan who only was like 16-6-7 which is decent tho. Discuss.

Damn, that's ridiculous!

Wilt's name came to my kind too when I first saw the thread title.


I remember LeBron and Iverson having great debut matches as well.

Kidd missed a triple double by 1 rebound. 9 rb, 11 assists, 10 pts

Brandon Jennings went 9-9-17.

I couldn't find anyone that actually got a triple double in their first game.

Hasn't been done, well at least since the 85-86 season. But Oscar probably did it if it has been done before.
