Dame Lillard goes off.
Let’s take a look at everyone who had ever scored more that 70 points in a NBA game.
As you can see it’s an elite list.
Wilt was a beast. Are you kidding me??? He just kept doing it. The biggest surprise on this list to me is David Robinson. I loved watching him but do not remember him scoring like this. Must have just been a crazy night.
Enter Damian Lillard. He scored 71 points last night and out on an amazing show. That boy can score. This come shortly after he wins the 3 point contest in his Weber state jersey. Being from Utah I loved that he played here in college and he still pays tribute to Weber state.
He continues to stick around the trailblazer even though any of the top teams would take him and he could compete for a championship. I like that he stays. He does get paid for staying. He always has one of the biggest contracts in the league.
I hope Dame keeps getting the respect he deserves. The boy can ball.
I hope he goes for 100.
He’s a great shooter for sure. I’m not overly impressed with Wilt because he was like giant compared to 90% of the league.
It’s like Jim Brown in football, he was bigger then most defensive lineman.
While I’m not taking anything away from either, it’s just not as impressive to me.
