It's a special thing when you're seeing a legend in the making, like watching a big-dick Dave Chappelle get birthed. Michael Jordan's rookie year—one of the biggest in the league's history—is your NBA equivalent. The Bulls went from a 27-55 team to a 38-44 seventh seed behind Jordan's Rookie of the Year campaign, when he shot 51.5 percent. Jordan was also productive in that first round loss to the Bucks, averaging 29.3 points per game. His shooting dipped to 43.6, but hey, the best was yet to come.
