Prepare to waste hours and hours of your lives, NBA fans: you can now look out any box score from any game in NBA history on Basketball-Reference.com.The site scanned newspaper box scores from really old games, and entered other digitally.
We’ve been playing around with it all day, and found that it’s really addicting to look up iconic games from your childhood to see what they’re like in retrospect.
For example, we looked up the box scores from the legendary (to us) 2001 playoff series between the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors.
We found Allen Iverson had one of the most insane stat lines you’ll ever see in Game Seven of that series: 21 points on a dreadful 8/27 shooting, 16 ASSISTS, four turnovers, four rebounds, two steals, a block, and he played all 48 minutes!
