Jake Layman’s NBA career is not very old — 24 minutes, to be exact.
But in those 24 minutes, the former Maryland star has done something better than any other player in NBA history. Layman, a rookie with the Portland Trailblazers, scored nine points in 16 minutes last night in a blowout loss to the Clippers. This comes eight days after Layman put up a crazy stat line of 17 points in eight minutes during his NBA debut.
Those two games are the only ones in which Layman has seen action, so he has an astonishing 26 points in 24 minutes. ESPN Stats & Info crunched the numbers, and Layman’s totals make him the most productive scorer in NBA history (if you count players with a minimum of 24 minutes).
Move over, Michael Jordan.
