Greatest Individual Season Ever

Share

ESPN's Page 2 has compiled a list of the 25 greatest individual seasons in all of sports history.  Only one Philadelphia player makes the cut, but it's the greatest season ever.

1. Wilt Chamberlain, Philadelphia Warriors, 1961-62
Chamberlain averaged 50.4 points and 25.7 rebounds. He set the NBA
record with 4,029 points -- Michael Jordan is the only other player in
league history to crack even 3,000. Chamberlain scored 50-plus points
45 times. Just how impressive is that? Michael Jordan cracked 50 points
37 times in his entire career. Chamberlain's 100 points on March 2
against the Knicks is perhaps the most famous single-game performance
in sports history. Chamberlain also logged 48.5 minutes per game,
playing all but eight minutes the entire season. To put all this in
perspective, take Tim Duncan's best scoring and rebounding season --
then double it.
