Charlie T.'s buddy (though, interesting, he's not in his Fave 5) Dwyane Wade put up 50 points last night in a loss to that other team from the Redneck Riviera (thank you, Vic Chesnutt).

The interesting thing isn't so much the exclusive club he joined– Players Who Dropped 50+ Points In A Game That Their Team Lost By 20+ Points (including members Dana Barros, George Gervin, and four-timer Wilt Chamberlain)– as it is the list of players who AREN'T on that list. Jordan, even in the lean Chicago years, put up 50 a bunch. But never in a lopsided loss. Even Allen Iverson, a scoring machine on several struggling teams, never did it. Vinsanity isn't. Dominique isn't.
