There is a saying that records are made to be broken and as the NBA is approaching its 75th anniversary season, there are still some records that have not only withstood the test of time, but are highly unlikely to ever fall.


Let’s take a look at the 10 most unbreakable records in NBA history.

Wilton Norman “Wilt”  Chamberlain is widely considered one the greatest and most dominant players in NBA history.  He holds numerous NBA all-time records in scoring, rebounding and is the only player to score 100 points in a single NBA game.   In the last 25 years, Kobe Bryant’s 35.4 points per game in 2005-2006 is the only player that has come close to Chamberlain’s highest single-season scoring average.

1.  Highest Single-Season Scoring Average

Record:  50.36
Held By:  Wilt Chamberlain

2.  Most Points in a Single Game

Record:  100
Held By:  Wilt Chamberlain

3.  Most Career Rebounds

Record:  23,924
Held By:  Wilt Chamberlain

stockotnJohn Stockton, if you look at him, just doesn’t not look like a “baller” and it would be hard for one to believe that he holds two potential unbreakable NBA records.  Stockton is one of the greatest NBA point guards of all-time and with Karl Malone by his side, they amassed a mountainous number of assists using the pick and roll.  The active career leader in assists is Andre Miller, whose 8,437 assists are just over half of Stockton’s total.

4.  Most Career Assists

Record:  15,806
Held By:  John Stockton

5.  Most Career Steals

Record:  3,265
Held By:  John Stockton

Everyone is quick to recall how Michael Jordan was able to lead the Chicago Bulls to two separate three-peats, but no other NBA franchise has won more than three consecutive titles except the Boston Celtics with an incredible 8.  It is hard to see this record being broken – ever !!

6.  Most Consecutive NBA Titles

Record:  8
Held By:  Boston Celticsbillrus

Barber shop talk always points to Michael Jordan or LeBron James as the greatest of all time, but Bill Russell‘s NBA title count is one that Jordan nor LeBron, although he is the player with the best chance to break it, can rival.  Even if the Cavaliers win a title this season, he would still need to win nine-straight titles to break the record before he turns 40.

7.  Most Career NBA Titles (single player)

Record:  11
Held By:  Bill Russell

Coaching guru Phil Jackson has had the luxury of coaching players like Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Dennis Rodman and Kobe Bryant, some of the players the NBA has ever seen.  With that said, the amount of wins for him as a coach and they “way” he has won is likely never to be duplicated.

8.  Most Career NBA Titles (coach)

Record:  11
Held By:  Phil Jacksonphiljack

9.  Most Wins in a Single-Season

Record:  72
Held By:  Chicago Bulls

 

The Miami Heat came within 6 games of the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers’ record 33-game winning streak, but with the current NBA being as competitive and athletic as it is, it would be something like alakeshow miracle to see a team go on what amounts to a two-month winning streak.

10.  Longest Winning Streak

Record:  33 games
Held By:  Los Angeles Lakers
