anyone who says mike wouldn't be able to hang today is straight up coping.
he averaged 37 a game in 86-87 when defenses were arguably at peak physicality.
he'd average 40 easy in today's game. his scoring numbers would look like wilt's in this day and age.
this man beat magic, clyde, chuck, malone, stockton and payton/kemp for his rings(with the team who drafted him unlike false GOATs who squad up with other all stars) and people are gonna act like he had it easy. on the way there he took out people like shaq, ewing, reggie, zeke.
what else do you want from him?
this man changed the world. he's the reason that 90% of everyone under 40 here follows the NBA.
There was absolutely no defense in the NBA in 1987. The pace was also faster back then.
Walter Davis averaged 24 PPG in 1987 LOL
MJ would have absolutely zero chance of touching 37 PPG today. He’d struggle to get to 30 PPG without a 3-point shot, which he never had.
The only time he was able to shoot was when they pushed in the 3-point line.
Giannis averages 30 pgg without a 3pt shot.
Just stop. You're embarrassing yourself.
The greatest scorer of all-time would have no problems averaging 30 ppg.
With the amount of switching that occurs in today's games, he'd destroy teams in isolation.
Giannis is 6’11” and has about 50 lbs of solid muscle on MJ. They have nothing in common.
Go ahead and name the SGs who are averaging 30 without a 3-point shot.
