    I want to know which records are unbreakable in your mind. Please mention more then one.

    -Rocky Marciano's Boxing Record 49-0
    -Ty Cobb's career .366 batting average
    -John Wooden’s consecutive NCAA wins - 88
    -Cal Ripken's consecutive Major League games - 2,632
    -Pete Maravich single season scoring avg. college - 44.2 ppg
    -Cy Young’s all time win record – 511
    -Byron Nelson’s straight victories on PGA Tour - 11

    Those are just a few that I have on top of my head right now.

    What about you guys?

    Wilt Chamberlain's 100 points in a single NBA game should be hard to get now, if not close to impossible.

    I have to agree with you it's going to be hard to break that record, but after seeing Kobe scoring 81 points in a game, I've changed my opinion on the record, I believe it's reachable. It will take a miracle like all the records that I mentioned but I don't think it's unbreakable.

    Haile Gebrselassie's world record marathon at 2:04:26 just over 2 hours.

    26.2 miles (40kilometers) in that kind of time is insane, that's like 4 minute miles for 26 miles in a row.

    I'm impressed by this record...

    The Bulls' 72-10 is not even imaginable nowadays.

    Barry Sanders - 39 touchdowns in a single season in college football.

    Here's a few more that I don't think theyll get beaten:

    UCLA Bruins: 7 consecutive NCAA basketball titles (1967-73)
    Wayne Gretzky: 2,857 NHL career points (1979-99)
    Montreal Canadiens: 10 straight Stanley Cup Finals (1951-60, w/ 5 straight wins 1956-60)

    I don't think anyone will beat Tiger's all time wins record once he sets it. The bar is looking to be pretty high on that one.

    -Won 200 of 1,185 NASCAR Winston Cup race starts. Holds records for career wins (200) and career starts from the pole (127).

    I think the Daytona 500 victories can be beaten, but I don't know about his win %.
