The Greatest Games Ever

Remember that time you torched your little brother and his friends for 35 at the local courts? That must have felt pretty good. Thanks to True Hoop, we stumbled upon this ridiculous site that has recorded some of the greatest single game performances in history – I think that they’re trying to make note of 100-point game ever recorded on Earth – so now you can see where you stack up against some legends.

They’ve got all of the well-known 100-plus point nights: Wilt, Dajuan Wagner, Cheryl Miller, Lisa Leslie, and Denham Brown (the Canadian guard who played at UConn). But they are missing the 134-point drubbing (52-53 FG) dished out by Christian Grant-Fields’ cousin Pookie against the Quizno’s All-Stars back in ’98. Pookie also grabbed 68 rebounds in that game.

Check out some of these preposterous feats:

* 100 pts. Dajuan Wagner, Camden High (W 157-67) Camden County Vo-Tech-Gloucester Township, 1/16/2001 (N.J.)

* On a 40′ x 82′ court, the New York streetball legend “Pee Wee” Kirkland destroyed an Independent Fire Company or something like that in a league played in the Lewisburg penitentiary in 1973-74. He averaged 70.9 ppg, including games of 100, 82, 79, 60, 51, 50, 48, and 27.

* Oh, and Pee Wee went for 135 in January of ’74, knocking down 62 FG’s in the process for a 228-47 win in that same league.

* In 1953, this guy John Barber must have been the truth. He had a 188-point game for Los Angeles State against Chapman College JV (92-153 FG), and a 150-point night against the Newspaper Sports Writers.

* Drazen Petrovic of Cibona Zagreb (Croatia) v. SMELT Olimpija (Slovenia) dropped 112 points in October of 1985.

* Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain famously hit 100 points in an NBA game for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks (36-63 FG, 28-32 FT)

* 13-year old Mats Wermelin, the Swedish nightmare, took over the Swedish Regional Boys Tournament at Stockholm, when he scored 272 points. Wow.

* A 46-year old mother, named Anat Draigor posted 75 points in the second half for Hapoel Mate Yehuda en route to 136 for the night.

* This might be my favorite. Bob Harrison of Lagrange middle school destroyed the Arch Street School in 1941 for 139 points. He was a 5’9″ 13-year old 8th-grader.
