    In theory according to the experts

    Hughes > Pippen
    Stackhouse > Harper
    Laettner > Kukoc
    Oakley > Rodman

    This should have been a gimme. He was gift wrapped a championship team

    It's funny because the Wizards were headed towards the 2002 Eastern crown before he got hurt in game 46:

    In the 46 games that Jordan played in 01/02 before the injury, he averaged:

    25.1 - 6.2 - 5.3 - 1.5 - 0.5 on 42%


    In his last 20 games up to the injury he averaged:

    27.5 - 6.4 - 5.2 - 1.3 - 0.5 on 44%


    In his last 10 games up to the injury he averaged:

    29.7 - 6.6 - 6.1 - 1.2 - 0.3 on 47%

    I don’t see any excuses. They should have won

    Larry being injured for LeBron doesn’t count. MJ actually played more games than Larry

    Mike James peak stats:

    20 ppg
    6 apg
    58% TS%

    Individual defense is actually irrelevant (except for MJ's)

    So the answer to this thread is that Pippen and Larry Hughes are both around as good as Mike James.

    What’s actually funny is that they were exactly 30-30 in games Jordan played that year.

    Lol, we are actually taking a 38-40 year old jordan far removed from the game as a significant point of information about his greatness. Ok.
