Its apparant that AI is going to average 30ppg this season, unless someone severly shuts him down this late in the season, so it got me thinking, How many players have averaged 30ppg in the last 20 years (as of right now).

Does anyone know the answer?? :eek8:

Nobody should have to google any stats to figure this out. I'm just amazed by the answer......

Nique.

Shaq and Robinson only averaged 30 PPG if you round up, so I don't think they should be counted.

If you were looking starting with the 85-86 season (this would be the 20th year) the answer is 6.
That is very impressive. Did you have that in your head?? :raised_ey

The answer is six, as Bullsnews said.

Jordan (8 times)
AI (2 times)
Malone (once)
Wilkins (twice)
McGrady (once)
Kobe Bryant (once).

Now for part 2.


How many of the players on that list averaged 30 ppg, and shot 50% from the field in any given same year?

And how many times did the player(s) do it?

I woulda never got Malone and for the 2nd question, I'm sure Bryant, T-Mac, and AI didn't. Malone probably did and Nique did once. That'd be my guess. I'm prolly wrong.

MJ- 7 out of 8 times if you round up from 49.5 If not, 5 out of 8 times.
Malone- 1 out of 1 times.

The rest failed to reach 50%.

Some people clearly have great memories for statistical information. Amazing they didn't have to cheat by looking at some WWW page.
Amazing is an understatement. They should be agents. :biggrin:

Is this a sort of competition or something that I'm missing out on? I just looked up the stats, were we not supposed to?

No, you weren't. :cheers:
Oh haha my bad. Truthfully, I would have guessed Malone since he's a big man and would have said 3 for Jordan.

The fact that he did it 7 times makes his greatness that more amazing IMO.
