The last time I checked Jordan played in 96'...

3) Pippen (F) 451
4) Stockton (G) 447
5) P. Hardaway (G) 394

Jordan also must be why Penny was 3rd in MVP voting in 96', right? What is VC's top MVP finish? 10th or 11th? Penny was a guy you could go to war with; prime Carter was a guy who could sell tickets.

Jordan being retired means nothing. Is Drexler's all-NBA first team selection in 92' illegitimate because Magic retired?

Nice post, Roundball.
