Kobe was the A option for that Lakers team the B option and C option. That Lakers team was a long way from either side of their 2000s dynastys. Kobe shot was helped by pure quantity.
This is true.

Yes it does dwarf anything by Wilt. It was ridiculous.
This is also true.

Kobe took 46 shots. Wilt took 63. It's safe to assume the majority of Wilt's points weren't difficult shots.

Wilt's opposing center in the 100 point game:



Darrell Imhoff 6' 10" started at center against Wilt 7' 2", but he fouled out and played only about half the game. By the end of the game, all of their big men had fouled out.

Great win for the Mavs. The Heat will be back next year without doubt.

Congratulations to the Mavericks. They were the better team over the course of the series. It is nice to see Nowitski and Kidd finally get a ring. The Heat will be up there next year although Spoelstra will probably not be coach.

Indeed, also, what Bill Simmons wrote about him is very true. Look at the comparisons with for example, Shaq.

The year that Chamberlain averaged 50/25, the league scoring average was 118.8ppg on 107.7 FGA and 42.6% shooting, leading to a ridiculous 71.4 rebounds per game.

Shaq's best statistical season was probably '99-'00, when he lead the league in scoring at 29.7ppg while averaging 13.6 boards. The league averages that year - 97.5ppg, 82.1 FGA, and 42.9 rebounds per game.

Adjust Chamberlain's numbers based on the percentage difference in FGA, FTA, total rebounds, etc. between eras and you come up with a line of 33.6/17.2, which is no doubt still great, but not as impressive when you consider his efficiency (barely above 50% from the field compared to Shaq's 57.4%). He also didn't have to share the ball with Kobe.

And for all Chamberlain's dominance, he only managed to win 2 titles, the second of which was as the 4th leading scorer on a Lakers team that had lost Elgin Baylor to an injury. So, Wilt managed to win a single, solitary title as the alpha dog on his team.

Well done Mavs,
Hope someone steps up next year to keep out the Heat again
who will probably add a bit more quality and possibly have Riley
on the bench.
