Default Career Playoff PER - #1. MJ: 28.60, #2. Mikan: 28.51

You think MJ was dominant in the playoffs? There was Mikan right there with him.

The competition Mikan faced was really weak, so it's sort of unfair. No doubt he was the most dominant of his time but that really isn't saying much.

You have to remember that that PER for Mikan doesn't even include his 2 best playoff runs - 1949 and 1950 since rebounds weren't tracked. He would be well over 30 if they did. GOAT gonna GOAT.

Safe to say '49 and 50 were likely 30+ PER runs.

Both those guys played in eras where the NBA allowed a certain degree of paint-camping - this is from the old NBA rulebook, Rule 2b under the Illegal Defense Guidelines (link below):
b. When a defensive player is guarding an offensive player who is adjacent (posted-up) to the 3-second lane, the defensive player may be within the "inside lane" area with no time limitations. An offensive player shall be ruled as "postedup" when he is within 3' of the free throw lane line. A hash mark on the baseline denotes the 3' area.

http://nbahoopsonline.com/History/Le...les/Fouls.html

But the NBA changed the rules in 2005 and banned all paint-camping by making a clear-cut, simple rule that is easy to abide by and enforce - defenders have to stay within "armslength" of their man to remain in the paint.
http://www.nba.com/nba101/misunderstood_0708.html
If an offensive players stands on one of the blocks, or inside the paint but near the FT line for example, his defender is not allowed to stand under the rim in either of these instances, since that is far out of armslength reach (a man's arm is 3 feet, and the paint is 16' x 19").. But in previous eras, the defender could legally camp "with no time restriction" anywhere inside the paint in both of these instances.

Honestly, i don't now if Mikan can make an NBA roster today. He's an ATG and you have to give him respect for being dominant when he played but the level of comp and skill level in that era was a joke. Just watch some of the highlights. Skills back then were primitive.
