Yes, but they will have the disadvantage of playing in the modern style of play that we have now. When Wayne was putting up all of those points, it wasn't just that he was that skilled and athletic, it was that he was creating the free flowing style that you see today. People were unprepared to deal with that kind of mindset and when he got his entire team to play like that, no one could control the scoring that went on.
That record won't be broken unless someone else is able to rewrite the playbooks like he did.
