In the NBA, there are games where a basketball player can score really high like Kobe Bryant’s 81 point game or have a high rebound game like Dwight Howard of 24 rebounds or a 20 assist game from Chris Paul. It’s amazing to see these basketball stars show their talent on the court. These high categories can really contribute to a team and win games.
This reminds me of my fantasy basketball league I’m playing right now. How it works is a team is created starting from a draft and every week a team competes against another team called a “match up”. The score is counted by categories in FG%, FT%, 3PT%, points, rebounds, assist, steals, blocks, and turnovers. Whoever wins the most categories, wins the match up. Each category counts as 1 point. The points are added until the end of the season and whoever scores the highest wins.
Since it can be really important in each category, I started to do some research about the best all time career in each category in NBA Franchise. You can start thinking about who is the all time career points leader, best shooting percentage player, rebound leader, and more. Let’s see if you got it right. Here is the list.
