Alonzo Mourning said on Fox Sports this week that Michael Jordan would put up 50 in today's NBA. And his reasoning... is actually pretty sound. The hand-check rules were implemented to free up the offensive game after basketball scoring died from choking on its own vomit after Jordan retired. Now you see the impact with guys like James Harden being able to draw free throws at such a high rate. But there is a flipside. If you go back and watch some of his greatest performances, Jordan wasn't double-teamed nearly as much as he should have been.
