The Chicago Bulls drafted one of the greatest scorers in NBA history back in 1984. To be exact, the fifth greatest scorer of all time in Michael Jordan.

MJ was a prolific scorer, averaging 30 points per game and a total of 32,292 points in his entire career. The man was unstoppable, capable of scoring from anywhere, no matter the opposition.

Ron Artest or as he is now known, Metta Sandiford-Artest was one of the toughest defenders in the NBA. There was not a single person in the league that he refused to guard.

However, there is only one player that he believes has the skill and scoring sense to average 50 points per game in today’s NBA. That player is none other than Michael Jordan!

Artest sure knows what he is talking about. There can be no denying that MJ is one of the GOATs, and his scoring isn’t the only thing to watch out for in his game.
