Michael Jordan is pretty much universally recognized as the greatest basketball player ever. And rightfully so. During his 15-year NBA career, he averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game while winning six NBA championships. So he is, without a doubt, the best player in Chicago Bulls history. There has never been—and never will be—a better Bulls player than MJ.
