    The guy can really score when he stays involved the entire time he's in. In my opinion every play should run through him. That's when we're at our best and give our selves the best chance to score.

    Only three straight games with at least 8 made threes? Something no one else except Steph Curry has ever done in NBA history? Only the three best consecutive games by a Blazers player in franchise history? Snooze. Wake me when something exciting happens.

    He's the only NBA player EVER to have 3 straight games of at least 47 points and 7 assists. Only 1 player has 2 straight games and that's James Harden.

    And his scoring off the court was even more legendary!

    He will eventually have a 70-point game I think. Out of all modern players I think he's the most likely to match Kobe's 81-point effort, though it's still very unlikely,

    He HAD to be doing some triple doubles in order to get to THOSE numbers though!

    Always remember: 2 is company.
    3 is a crowd
    4 is just unsanitary

    Booker. He's already had a 70, and he was just 20 at the time.

    I don't recall watching Booker's 70 point game, but in Kobe's 81 point game against Toronto was literally a joke as Toronto didn't play defense on him and it was worse than an all star game defense. Lakers spoon fed him almost every point. Lillards game last night and against GS was all done in the flow of the game

    OMG, look at Wilt Chamberlain and there was no three point shot when he played. He once got 100 points in a game with only two point shots and free throws. Probably the GOAT.

    I remember the days in here when guys were calling for us to trade him.
    There was another dunce in another forum who claimed that anyone who said he was gonna be better than Kyrie Irving were stupid. Sly knows who he is or should I say was.

    It’s kind of amazing Dame doesn’t have a triple double.

    I don't know, he's only scored above 50 three times total. Not discounting his 70 point game, but that was more of an aberration than the norm. Damian has scored over 50, 3 times this year alone.

    There was 8 teams in the NBA back then, the great high school teams now are better. The NBA finals weren't televised. Wilt's stats are extremely misleading.

    An NBA player scoring 60 now is more impressive than Wilt getting 100.
