This Should Have Been A Fanpost (From "nima" NOT "haildablazer") Brandon's Two Games In A Historical Context

FYI:

This is not my fanpost. ALL CREDIT goes to Nima, and if you already saw this I apologize, but it's worth seeing twice!

Nima posted this as a comment on my previous fanpost in response to my question of where Brandon's 63 points through 2 games falls in the history of the NBA. The answer is stunning:

With the help of the Elias Sports Bureau, crack PR intern Aaron Grossman (Rex, to his friends) has uncovered evidence that places Brandon’s Game Two performance in perspective.

 

1) No other player in NBA history has EVER scored more points in a game that was either the first or second playoff appearance of his career.

 

MOST PTS, FIRST POST SEASON GAME

 

38 04/11/1979 Williamson, John

37 03/23/1949 Mikan, George

36 03/25/1970 Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem

36 04/13/1976 Brokaw, Gary

36 04/18/2009 Rose, Derrick

36 04/17/1977 Erving, Julius

 

MOST PTS, SECOND POST SEASON GAME

 

42 04/21/2009 Roy, Brandon

41 04/23/2007 Boozer, Carlos

39 04/27/2005 Arenas, Gilbert

38 04/01/1974 Lanier, Bob

38 03/24/1949 Mikan, George

 

 

2) Furthermore, Brandon’s cumulative total of 63 points after his first two playoff games puts him in pretty exclusive company.

 

1. 75 George Mikan

2. 69 Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem

3. 67 Paul, Chris

4. 66 Erving, Julius

5. 65 Lanier, Bob

6. 64 Issel, Dan

7. 63 Roy, Brandon

7. 63 Chamberlain, Wilt

 

Just a few good names on that list.

 

THANKS NIMA!!!!!!!!
