№19: NBA Players with the Most Career 50 Point Games (Minimum of 4 games)

May 17, 2021

Welcome to the tedi.substack.com weekly newsletter! At the beginning of each week*, this newsletter will touch on any number of entertaining, informative, or (possibly) useful topics.

The focus of this week’s Stats Spotlight is on a very exclusive list—NBA players who have had the most career 50 point games. This topic came to mind when I heard that the Washington Wizards Bradley Beal recently eclipsed the mark for the 5th time in his career (May 8, 2021). In doing so, Beal became the 21st player—and the youngest—to register 5 or more career 50 point games. For more, scroll down to the Stats Spotlight section below.

As we move further into 2021, your comments and feedback will also be of immense help in shaping the direction of the newsletter.

Thank you in advance for your time and constructive feedback. Read away!

As part of my efforts to release a self-help eBook by the end of August 2021, I was hoping to get the pulse of the public (so to speak) on the topics that they would like me to touch on. The general question is this: If you had an opportunity to talk to a counseling and/or sport psychologist for an hour, what would the session focus on?

Welcome to Stats Spotlight! Inspired by the writings of the late Zander Hollander (Sportswriter, archivist, and author of the ever informative The Complete Handbook of Pro Basketball), I decided to put my 30 years of basketball knowledge to some use and come up with a short, free flowing, and non-linear/viewpoint narrative on the featured player, team, hobby, or statistical insight.
