Michael Jordan reckons that under today’s NBA rules, he could score 100 points in a game.

“It’s less physical and the rules have changed, obviously,” he told USA Today. “Based on these rules, if I had to play with my style of play, I’m pretty sure I would have fouled out or I would have been at the free throw line pretty often and I could have scored 100 points.”

You’d be foolish to bet against Money. But could he really have dropped a tonne?

Well, he DID score 60+ points five times in his career (including 69 on Cleveland in 1990…and 63 on a tough 1986 Boston Celtics team).

He also gave the Knicks 55 back in 1995 – and they were one of the most defensively-minded teams ever.

And don’t forget that Kobe dropped 81 on the Raptors in 2006.

But remember this – Bryant made 7-13 3-pointers in that game, and Jordan was not as good as Mamba from behind the arc.

Could MJ have gone 19 better? Hmmm…I don’t know.

Speaking of Kobe, Jordan gave his opinion on the reigning Finals MVP. When asked where Mamba stands on the all-time greats list, he said: “It’s so hard to say. I think he is always going to be within the conversations of some of the greatest players who’ve played by the time he is finished. Where does he rank among those, if you are talking about positions? If you are talking about guards, I would say he has got to be in the top 10.”

Top 10 just for guards? Are you KIDDING me?!

MJ’s been retired for 7 years now…but he still appears to be playing mind games with ballers!
