Former NBA center Alonzo Mourning is convinced that Michael Jordan would be an even more unstoppable offensive force today than he was during his playing days.

Thanks to offense-friendly rules barring defenders from putting their hands on perimeter players, Zo thinks MJ would put up close to 50 points a night—Jordan averaged a career-high 37.1 ppg back in 1986-87.

The always-candid Mourning tells Fox Sports that he would have loved to see LeBron James hoop back in the rough-and-tumble late ’80s and early ’90s.
