Was Devin Booker’s 70 Against The Celtics More Impressive Than Wilt’s 100?

Unequivocally, positively, absolutely yes Devin Booker’s 70 points last night was more impressive than Wilt’s 100. First, I’m obviously a Wilt 100 truther. How convenient that he scored EXACTLY 100 points. News flash Wilt: if you’re going to lie, people are more likely to believe a number like 103 than exactly 100.

First, Devin Booker was going up against some of the best defenders in the league. Avery Bradley’s going to get votes for DPOY(thank you Twitter for informing me Avery Bradley didn’t play last night, I still stand by my position). Jae Crowder can hang with almost anybody in the league. Wilt played against Darrall Imhoff, whom you’ve obviously never heard of. Secondly, Devin Booker scoring 70 points with only making 4 threes? That’s hard to do nowadays, harder than it was 50 years ago when Wilt did it. “Oh Wilt did it with no threes!” Again, Wilt was going up against guys who wouldn’t make D-3 basketball teams nowadays. And lastly, Devin Booker doing it at 20, way before he’s in his prime, is WILD (wilt was 27, well into his prime).

Granted, they were fouling down 15 and just letting Devin Booker do anything at the end of the game to get him to 70. It’s no Kobe 81, because it didn’t come as naturally. Still, better than Wilt’s please @ me.

UPDATE: DID Y’ALL KNOW WILT CHAMBERLAIN DIED 18 YEARS AGO?! SWEAR I SAW HIM ON TNT 6 WEEKS AGO.

  1. Hey genius,

    Avery Bradley didn’t play! And let’s be real clear why that matters. Anyone who thinks Devin Booker scores 70 against Boston with a healthy Avery Bradley in the building should be required to seek psychiatric help. Not going to happen. Pure fluke due to circumstances combined with ridiculous hero ball and coaching antics to pump up the numbers. This guy will not only not be a hall of famer but he is barely good enough to be an all star.
