Wilt Chamberlain holds the record for most points scored in an NBA game. On March 2, 1962, he scored 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks.
Well actually he scored 100 but then he scored 101 later in his career.
This record is held by the 1998 Minnesota vikings. They scored 556 points on the season.
That would be Gary Anderson. Not only was he a prolific kicker for the Steelers, but he still holds the record for points scored in the NFL by a single player with 2,434 points. No active player is even close to this phenomenal record.
