23 points in a row vs. the Hawks

In one of the most prolific scoring runs in NBA history, Michael Jordan averaged 37.1 points, and scored over 3000 points during the 1986-87 season. In this game against the Atlanta Hawks, Michael scores 61 points, passes the 3000 point mark, and scores an incredible 23 points in a row.

    Whenever you think someone can replace Jordan all you have to do is go to youtube to watch a few clips, and realize nobody is Jordan! http://doin-work.com

      I heartily agree. It’s too bad we can’t compare the physical attributes of past athletes against current athletes. I bet MJ would be off the charts!

        Yeah, too bad there’s no way to do it! I remember some guys on ESPN were trying to pick a winner between Jordan and Bird (in their prime) vs. Lebron and Dwight. Not sure how they picked Dwight, maybe from the Mcdonalds commercials, but it was an interesting debate that nothing was settled as always…

        If you’ve seen Rocky Balboa there was that computer simulation they used to compare 2 boxers from different time periods. I wish ESPN or someone would come up with the same thing for other athletes. I would say that athletes today like LeBron and Dwight are physically superior from the advance training and nutrition they receive over their lifetimes, but past athletes like Jordan and Bird are much more superior in terms of skill and their mental approach to the game. It’s nothing against LeBron and Howard, but they would benefit from more time to mature and grow before being thrust into the spotlight.
