Jordan Could Still Average Double Figures
Title paraphrased from Antawn Jamison.
The only reason I posted this is because in the last 2 weeks, I thought about posting something similar like this here but decided against in because didnt feel the time was appropriate since we are in the middle of the season and there are much more important things to discuss. Since Jamison brought it up, I wanted to post it and also ask the question that I pondered about posting.
My post wasnt exactly what Jamison said...but rather I was going to ask how many points do you think MJ could average if he were playing on the college level right now at his current age? I just wanted to see what people would think.
In his 1st season with Washington, Jordan averaged 23 pts a game at the age of 38...His next season he averaged 20 pts at the age of 39..
Anyone who watched him play could tell he had lost a step..His high flying act was almost Grounded,he wasnt using his athleticism as much.....He was using his outstanding fundamentals and superior IQ,becuz he had lost alot of quickness...And that was 10 years years ago..And guys in the nba has gotten alot faster since then..
I hear alot of Charlotte Bobcats players who practice and play pickup games with him,say he still could be productive in the league....I think he still could average between 12 to 17 points a night,but his problem would be on the defensive end...
I don't believe it. It's like my friend telling me that he could beat a top level college team by himself back in the day.
At some point, the hero worship has to stop. He's the best of all time, but come on.
I bet he would bust your ass Mcbailey your not one to talk
I'm also not in the NBA, so I don't see what your point is.
Depending on the kind of shape Jordan could get himself into.... The bigger question is would Jordan's production translate to wins. With enough shots virtually anyone in the NBA could easily average over 10 ppg.
