No one in the history of the NBA has averaged more points per game than Air Jordan.
His 30.12 points rank just above Wilt Chamberlain’s 30.07 mark, and those two are the only players in the game who have averaged more than 27.5 points per game.
Jordan averaged 20.0 points or more in all 15 of his NBA seasons, he led the league in scoring 10 times and averaged 30 or more points eight times, including seven straight seasons from 1987 to 1993. It’s hard to think that Jordan’s career mark will ever be topped.
