Stats: 31.5 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 5.5 APG
For years, parents have used Michael Jordan as the symbol of perseverance: that you can achieve anything if you work hard. They skip over 1990-91, though. That year Mike was using Black Magic or some other kind of basketball sorcery that parents don't want their kids fucking with. Here are the season's numerous examples of it:
—31.5 PPG. On 53.9 percent shooting.
—The 38-point, 19-rebound performance in Game 5 against the Sixers in the semifinals.
—Finally beating the Pistons in the playoffs.
—Finally attaining God level.
