Jordan in the modern era would be a 42%fg putting up 25 - 30PPG in his prime/modern era.
just think that in the 80's there were over 30 players who scored over 24PPG on 50%FG......
it has only been done 5times in the past 12 years.
It is actually a much easier/softer era today. Just look at all the rule changes that pu$$ifies the league. Did you see how the late 80s/early 90s Pistons play? Or how about the mid-90s Knicks? Tackling a player mid-air is considered a foul or a warning. Today, it equals suspension.
Jordan would do more damage to today's kids not just because of his basketball skills but his athleticism and physical prowess.
