2015-16 Blocks Leader

NBA Honors: Blocked Shots Leaders

The blocks were not recorded and were not an official statistic until the 1973-74 season. That's the reason why, although Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain are for sure the top shot blockers of all time, you won't find them here.

Only twice the top blocker was a member of the championship team.

Mark Eaton, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Marcus Camby led the league in blocked shots per game 4 times each. Abdul-Jabbar is the only player to have led the NBA in scoring, rebounds and blocks at least once (again this doesn't consider Chamberlain)
