But here we will talk about some records which seem like they will remain unchanged for another few years of NBA.
Here we will talk about some most incredible records of NBA.
Highest Single-Season Scoring Average
Wilt Chamberlain holds the record of highest single-season scoring average with 50.36 points. He holds the top four single-season scoring averages in the history of NBA. This record was made in a 1961-62 season. The next closest player to come near this record was Kobe Bryant. Kobe Bryant scored 35.4 points per game in 2005-06 season. Till now this record remains unchanged.
Most Points in a Single Game
Wilt Chamberlain holds another record of scoring most points in a single game. Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single match which is a record. He also had six career games with 70 or more points throughout his career. But on March 2, 1962, the best record was made when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single match. The next player to come close to this record is Kobe Bryant. On January 22, 2006, Kobe Bryant scored 81 points in a single match.
Most Career Rebounds
Wilt Chamberlain was one of the best players in the history of NBA. And he scored many records too. Wilt Chamberlain holds the record of 23,924 career rebounds. This record can’t be broken and also no scenario is there where another player came close to this record. Tim Duncan retired after 19 seasons in the league and on that time he was 8833 rebounds behind the record of Wilt Chamberlain. Current active player with the maximum number of rebounds is Dwight Howard with 11133 boards.
Most Career Assists
The record of most career assists is held by John Stockton. He holds the record of most career assists with 15806 career assists. John Stockton is considered as one of the greatest point guards in the history of NBA. Among the current active players, only Andre Miller holds a record of 8524 career assists and the next closest player in Chris Paul. 31 years old Chris Paul holds the record of 7688 career assists.
Most Career Steals
John Stockton holds the record of most career steals. John Stockton holds the record with 3265 career steals. The next closest active player to come close to this record is Chris Paul with 1793 career steals.
Most Consecutive NBA Titles
Boston Celtics hold the record of winning most consecutive NBA titles. They hold the record by winning 8 consecutive NBA titles. No other teams even ever come close to this record. Next, the most consecutive win is winning 3 consecutive NBA titles.
Most Career NBA Titles (Single Player)
Bill Russell holds the record of most career NBA titles as a single player. And in the current time, it is very hard to imagine a player who will reach double-digit NBA titles ever. 31 years old LeBron James has the best chance to break this record where he holds three rings currently and then 28 years old Stephen curry holds only one ring in his resume. But they both will end up with seven or eight championships in a row before their 40th birthday. So this record also seems to remain unchanged.
Most Career NBA Titles (Coach)
Phil Jackson holds the record of winning most career NBA titles as a coach. He holds the record of winning 11 NBA titles as a coach. 67 years old Gregg Popovich, the head coach of San Antonio Spurs holds the record of winning five NBA titles among the current active career leaders.
Most Wins In a Single Sseason
Golden State Warriors holds the record of most wins in a single season. They hold the record of winning 73 matches in the 2015-16 season. No other team seemed to break the record by winning 74 games in a season.
Longest Winning Streak
This record is held by the Los Angeles Lakers when they have won 33 consecutive games. The Golden State Warriors are the only team who came within five games of the Los Angeles Lackers’s winning streak. This record was made in the 1971-72 season. The current NBA competition is very competitive so continuing a two month’s winning streak in current time is very tough for the competitors.
The Average Number of Blocks /Game
Eaton holds the record with an average of 5.6 blocks in a 1984-85 season. Eaton was a tall player with an impressive height of 224 CM. And this height advantage adds more accuracy in his ability to block.
A Technical Foul in 1 Season
Rasheed Wallace is the hottest head player in the history of NBA. He used to play very hard and also he thought that each and every team also plays hard. And this attitude made him the singular target of NBA officials. People used to joke by saying that all NBA rules are created to oppose Wallace.
