Polladaday: MJ’s 100?

Michael Jordan recently said that in today’s NBA, with hand-checking fouls and a faster tempo, he could’ve dropped tripple digits. Is it true?

Could MJ have scored 100 in 2010?

    depends on which team he was playing. not on his 95 bulls because he wouldn’t need to and i don’t see ol’ scottie being cool with him taking that many shots. but maybe if he was on the 86 bulls in the same zone as when he dropped 63 on the greatest team of all time then yeah maybe.

    The probability of MJ or anyone else scoring 100 is a low as chances for peace in the Middle East, yes it’s THAT low.

    Wonder what Wilt would have said? 150?

    This definitely proves that the Jordan jockriders are more ridiculous than the Kobe lovers. 100? Really? A guard scoring 100 points in a game? Everyone that voted yes should be exiled to Jupiter.

    Get that plane ready Kap!! Jupiter here we come! If Kobe can score 81points..then clearly Michael can score 100 points..however that depends ONLY if his teammates were willing to pass the ball to him that much! Wilt woulda said 200 points btw…

    No doubt Jordan could score 100 in 2010. Especially if he had the 1997-1998 team, and if they were facing the 76ers.

    What Kobe did was once in a lifetime and I doubt that could be duplicated. If Lebron can’t score over 60 then I don’t think Jordan could even get 80 let alone 100. Maybe on 2K lol…

    …sounded crazy the first time I heard him say it, just because anyone saying ‘I’d score 100′ seems crazy, but its not very far from realistic. Considering Kobe scored 81 in 3 quarters and some change, theres no reason Jordan couldn’t top it…..it just sounds a tad whiny for him to make those comments though…its like, you’ve achieved enough in this sport

    HAHAHAHAHAA funny. there is such a low chance of him doing that. the difference between now is that before der was handchecking, and now there isnt. that doesnt mean hes gonna go to scoring 30 & 40 to scoring 100. his career high was 69, still not gonna happen

    If he’s playing against a Sam Mitchell (Kobe’s 81) or Flip Saunders (LBJ’s Game 5 in the ’07 ECF) -coached team, it’s definitely possible. But against any coach or team with some pride, aint happening

  • Miamijoker

    If he was on the warriors or raptors

    @LA Huey….hey man that was Sam’s first year…give him a break, he lead that Raptors team to a place it had never been in close to a decade…

    @kap I don’t know if I read your statement wrong. But it sounds like what your saying is Lebron is better than Michael.

    am i the only person who realizes that defensive 3 seconds was not a rule until 2001?

  • http://www.springbored.net letsmotor

    you put Jordan in the right situation in 2010, something like the situation kobe was in when he scored 81–a game against a terrible defensive team who still has you on your heals with their scoring and team full of guys who can’t do much but pass to you and let you carry them–and yeah, jordan could do it.

  • http://twitter.com/HarryByrdMan44 LA Huey

    @The BRK, not trying to be mean. I’m just sayin’

  • logues

    if he was in the same position as kobe was when he dropped 81(on a terrible team) then guarntee he could do it

    Teams hardly score 100 points today, so I don’t think so. And I don’t know why hardcore MJ fans are saying that he would score a 100 points today, cause they are criticizing Kobe for scoring 81 and saying “MJ would never do something like that, that is disgraceful to pad your stats like that, MJ would never do anything like that, Kobe sucks” because MJ never scored 81 points in a game. Yes MJ could definitely score 81 points on a same kind of night like Kobe, but noway he could do that consistently. And people who are saying that Wilt could easily scorea 100 are crazy. He played with small, unathletic guys and there was no offensive 3 seconds rule, so he could just stand in the paint and somebody threw him the ball and dunk. Today he probably couldn’t average 20 points per game.

    MJ and Kobe are almost on par offensively. Kobe took every shot and hit a ludicrous amount of three pointers, went to the line 20-times, and only hit 81. Once again, Jordan is not 19 points better offensively.
