Marcus Camby just got 11 blocks against the Jazz today, along with 8 points and 24 rebounds. Haven't checked yet but 11 blocks must be close to the highest ever in nba history

highest ever was 17 by Mark Eaton. 11 blocks happens about twice per year on average. Still an amazing game though.

It's 17... 11 blocks is the highest ever in a half, though. However, the 17 was performed by Elmore Smith in 1973, quite a while ago.

Edit: Eaton's career high was 14 I believe. He does have the highest average BPG though.

yeah, he had a pretty good stat line...2nd time in the last few games that he had 20+ rebounds. Linas Kleiza with a career high 41, 20 in the 2nd...where did that come from?

Marcus Camby, when healthy, is the best center in the West, in my opinion. He is to center what Jason Kidd is to point guard; a consistent triple-double threat. Always among the league-leaders in both blocks and rebounds. He can hit out to 15 feet, gets plenty of steals, is athletic enough to run and finish... he does, pretty much, everything a center should do well.

I somewhat agree, Yao has a more complete offensive package but then again on the Nuggets Camby doesn't really need to score that much, but does everything else spectacularly. If he scored 20 PPG he would be an All-Star.

If he scored 20 ppg he'd be a superstar. As an offensively challenged player he borders on allstardom.

Who is the most likely person to get a quadruple double in the NBA?

I used to always say AK47 and Kidd, but Camby is another person who could easily accomplish the feat.

There are a few players, like JSmith and GWallace but AK has the highest probability as he gets the assists as well

Another question. Who was the last player that got one?.

The last I remember is Olajuwon, but I'm sure I'm forgetting about somebody (probably several)... It's been a long time since Hakeem was at the top of his game.

Sure does, buddy. Thanks for taking some time to check it.

I did remember that one by Olajuwon, although seems like I had forgotten about Robinson's one.

It's actually hard to believe that there's been so few. I mean, it's not like they should be common, but only 4 in the whole history of the league?.

One would think that, with the kind of players that have played in the NBA, there would be some more.
