Jordan question

If Michael Jordan suited up as the starting SG for the Charlotte Bobcats and played a game against a decent team like the Blazers, how many points would he score?

10 points tops.... 1. no

10 points tops....

1. no matter how great jordan was, father time is a bizznitch

2. as much as the average player respects him, no one will make it easy for jordan to score easily

but i could be wrong.

I wouldnt doubt him being

I wouldnt doubt him being better than some NBA bench players. Whats scary is they are actually talking about if Jordan is thinking come back, since his team is in a virtual dead end. I dont think he could score more than 15 points in a game, but im not doubting that guy.

Im in the "Id love for him to play just to watch MJ one more time, no matter how watered down he is" group, as opposed to the "I hate all his comebacks, its diminishing his accomplishments" group.

Word, Jordan was never a good

Word, Jordan was never a good jump shooter and he's slow now at this point. I think he can get maybe 8 points and 2 assists.

Look it up. Jordan wasn't.

Look it up. Jordan wasn't. You can say what you want, he had alot of bad shooting games.

That's one of the advantages in the Kobe vs Jordan debate. Kobe was a better shooter.

Obviously didn't watch Jordan play, and everyone has bad shooting games. Even Kobe

Your right, I saw th 95-03

Your right, I saw th 95-03 years. I didn't get to see prime Jordan besides tapes that my dad had when he played in North Carolina and the early 90's.

Jordan wasn't a great shooter. Don't know what to tell you. I understand it's the G.O.A.T but he wasn't. Ask anyone who did see him play, he wasn't a great shooter.

Jordan, at the beginning of

Jordan, at the beginning of his career wasnt a consistant shooter at all. He was still during the first 3 title runs, a good shooter. Then, during the 95-98 run was basically exclusively jumpshooting. And lead the league in scoring all 3 years doing it.

from 3 point range jordan was

from 3 point range jordan was sub par, not bad from there, but not a major threat. But 20 feet and in he was great at shooting and top notch.

I don't think he would do

I don't think he would do very well. I don't think he has the stamina he used to. It took Tracy McGrady a while to acclimated this season, so I can only imagine it would take MJ more seeing how he's been out longer. I could see MJ playing 15-20 minutes at a high rate.

Also, if he's playing a team like the Blazers, I believe Wes Matthews and Nicolas Batum are capable enough defenders to give Jordan a hard time. If he's on with Stephen Jackson, he probably won't get many shots off, but if he's coming in for him, I could see him going 3-10 FG, 2-2 FT, 2 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal, 3 turnovers.

Assuming 30 minutes of PT, I

Assuming 30 minutes of PT, I would say 3-9 from the field and 8-9 from the line for 14 points.

And Jordan probably had the best mid-range game of any guard, ever. Not a great three point shooter, but he didn't really need to be.

Well

Well i'm a 37 year old lifelong celtics fan. I've hated MJ with passion for a long time. Hated. But to say he wasnt a great jump shooter? That is maybe the most ill informed, rediculous thing i've read on these forums in a long time. That dude was money 18 and in. Not a great long range shooter, although clutch. People think he put up 30ppg for his career. career mind, not 1 season like mcgradey, or 3 seasons like kobe, for his whole career, on what dunks and FTs? Um, no, he did it on midrange jump shots.

Alright, I'll clarify since I

Alright, I'll clarify since I just got back home

Jordan is 43, 44 years old right now. That man doesn't have the speed to get past young defenders off the dribble, he'd have to be a catch and shoot guy. Even late in his career, he had some ability to get to the his spots and score, you take a man who's been out the league 7-8 years and he'd have issues scoring. 20 feet and in? Yes, he was auto, but from there, he wasn't great. "Never a great" was too strong a term.

It's cool. I already stated when I watched MJ. I even asked some of the people who were older then me and they said the same thing.

I was WRONG. I'm not afraid to admit it. It's cool

I dont think he would even be

I dont think he would even be able to play more than 20 minutes in an nba game i think if he would he play, he would get like 15 minutes at most. He is 48 and at that age, and with all the miles that his legs has been, its gonna be hard to even last 5 minutes playing against the worlds best. But in those 15 minutes, i would think that jordan would score about 5-8 points with like 5 assists. Just his presence and I.Q. on the court will already make even the greatest nba players play harder.

I definitely think he'd need

I definitely think he'd need some practice time to get back in game shape and to get his shot going again. I mean he lost to Gerald Henderson in HORSe not too long ago. I have no doubt he could find his jumpshot again, but I think it'd take some time.

Lol, I'm being sarcastic man, since everybody is being over dramatic. Although a wrong statement, I still liked your analysis on his speed and stats he would put up.

I know, that's why I reposted it lol.

It's cool, I was always under the impression he wasn't a great shooter because everytime I read a Kobe-Jordan debate...shooting always went to Kobe.

I'd be willing to say Jordan

I'd be willing to say Jordan is the conversation for the best mid range jump shooter of all-time. Man, even if you started watching him in 95', he was a killer jump shooter for the last 3 peat.

He's still more athletic at 48 than Brian Cardinal and Brian Scalabrine and I think he would be strictly a jump shooter, or rely on his size to over power smaller guards. He did average 20 ppg at 39 including a 51 point game at 38. IF he were in shape I think he could be a 5-7 ppg 3 rpg player off the bench who could still get hot and be a threat to hit double digits. I don't think he'd be able to play big minutes though.

No one has mentioned his

No one has mentioned his fadeaway....he created it. Possibly the most unstoppable shot there is.

His was automatic....

he'd need a couple of months

he'd need a couple of months to train and lose weight( have yall seen how big he's gotten and his belly?) and he would have a very very hard time checking anyone. I don't think he could get double figures. No matter how great he was Father time never loses.

hes pushin 50, he might be

hes pushin 50, he might be able to throw some moves from the low/ mid post on some guys, but i doubt he would be a serviceable nba player at this point and he would have trouble playing any kind of extended minutes.

One game?

I think Jordan could get at least 10 points now... That's only three buckets and four free-throws....

He lost to Gerald Hendersen

He lost to Gerald Hendersen while playing HORSE like 3 times in a row earlier this year, so hisshooting really is not all that automatic and he'd probably be the least athletic guy in the NBA. I don't think he'll be able to last starter minutes on court too.
