I'm not saying it was the best version of Jordan as a player, I already know that he improved as a player and if I had to choose the best version of him as a player it would definetly be '90 or '91, but in terms of individual success and accolades? This season HAS to be considered as one of the best of all time.
Back to Back 50 point playoff games:
In a league with Magic, Bird, Barkley, Malone, Drexler, Wilkins, Mchale, Hakeem, Stockton, Isiah...
How do you win:
Defensive Player of the Year
ASG MVP (in Chicago btw)
All NBA 1st
All defense 1st
Basically having the best statistical season in NBA history per possession
Leading the league in scoring
Leading the league in steals
Leading the league in free throws
Leading the league in minutes
Leading the league in PER
Leading an average Bulls team to 50 wins and the 2nd round (1st time in the 80's)
Getting 200 stls and 100 blks in a single season (WTF)
Blocking more shots than 80% of starting centers as a guard (WTF)
Averaging 45 on 56% in a playoff series (seriously, WTF?)
