    A incredible Michael Jordan’s season, over 37 points averaged and hitting the league. When Bulls were Jordan & nothing else…, well, Charles Oakley plays a good season.

    Mo,

    Averaging 37 points over the course of a season is incredible. A 27 point performance would have been an off night, and he would have had to drop 47 the next night to maintain his average.

    Yes, but is Michael Jordan, off course.
