For Old Time’s Sake: MJ Breaks Backboard
What a throwback. Ya’ll have probably seen this before but even so, I could watch it all day. YOUNG Mike getting up, same form he rocked in the league. This occurred on August 25, 1986 in a Nike exhibition game in Italy. MJ scored 30 points in the game and then went on to post these averages in the ’86-’87 NBA season:
37.1 PPG, 5.2 RPG. 4.6 APG, 2.88 SPG, 1.52 BPG
I guess he was okay. 37 points on any given night is pretty money but over 82 games… that’s just stupid. Do I dare say G.O.A.T?….YUP.
