16Elgin Baylor

Most fans do not know that he had the highest NBA season scoring average EVER by anyone not named Wilt Chamberlain.
Elgin Baylor averaged 38.3 points per game in the 1961-62 season, compared with Michael Jordan's highest ever season average of 37.1.
The problem was, that happened to be the year that Wilt averaged 50 points a game, and nobody ever bothers to check who came in SECOND.

One of only 5 NBA players to ever score 70 points or more in a game. Interestingly, Michael Jordan never did it!
