HOUSTON (AP) – Sure, LeBron James has been on an amazing roll, but what about what Wilt Chamberlain did in 1962?

Now fans can study both in one place like never before.

The NBA put its entire statistical history online Friday, launching a website that allows fans to review box scores, shot charts, game logs and newer data that has changed the way players are rated.

Previously available only to teams and league personnel, and only recently to media, it’s there for everyone at NBA.com/stats.

“There’s no other sports website that I’m aware of that does this type of computing,” said NBA executive vice president of operations and technology Steve Hellmuth.

The site features every box score for every game played since the league’s original season in 1946-47. It highlights noted games such as Chamberlain’s record 100-point outing in 1962, when he averaged more than 50 points for the season, and Kobe Bryant’s 81-point outburst in 2006.
