If in the world of NBA there is talk of the most competitive players in history, Michael Jordan enters the discussion without a doubt. In order to win and leave an indelible legacy in chicago bulls, MJ pushed the limits to unthinkable margins on the courts. He was a born winner!
With six NBA championships, 14 All-Star Game selections, five regular season MVP awards and 6 Finals plus 10 scoring titles between 1986 and 1998, Jordan swept the stats in the best basketball in the world. But nevertheless…
The NBA archives dusted off an unmissable Michael Jordan interview in which he revealed what are the most important statistics in the NBA according to MJ himself and, without wanting to want to, he threw a dart at no one else and no one less than Lebron James.
It is no secret to anyone that one of LeBron James’ goals before retiring from the NBA is to overcome Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the top scorer in history. This Jordan did not care and explained it in the incomparable style of MJ.
Michael Jordan revealed the most important statistics in the NBA
“Well, that never got me going. Stats just add up. When you strive, you don’t worry about it. Good things happen if people work hard. If I played for the stats, would I never retire in 1993? Or he would keep chasing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time scoring record.. That doesn’t drive me. Sure, it defines to some extent for people who don’t know me. In 20 years, we will never know who Michael Jordan really is. But according to the statistics, it must have been pretty decent. Those are the only ways I look at the stats. It’s about winning championships and winning. The stats that matter to me are the games we win and the rings you collect.”, sentenced Michael Jordan.
