David Blatt: Jordan would score 50 points per game in modern basketball
Former head coach of the Russian national team and the Cleveland Cavaliers, David Blatt, expressed the opinion that the legend of the “Chicago bulls” of the 1990s, Michael Jordan, would have scored 50 points per match if he played in the NBA at the present time.
“Jordan would score 50 points per match. Like wilt Chamberlain. Today, he would go to the free throw line 25 times a game and attack from the game with a hit percentage of about 80. Unlike Chamberlain, who would have reached about 50.
The series about Michael “the Last dance” is perfect for the current time. The only thing that bothers me about him is his almost violent honesty. As a coach, I’m usually used to seeing this world closed and quiet, and suddenly everything opens up. And even after 22 years”, – quotes the words of Blatt Sport5.
Recall that Michael Jordan was recognized six times as the most valuable player of the final series of the National basketball Association. The Chicago bulls legend ended his career in 2003, when he was 40 years old.
