Antawn Jamison one of the great scorers in the game former North Carolina star. Well Michael Jordan turns fifty or Sunday and he says that his -- -- laced them up today you can average a double double. That's why Jamieson of the Lakers saying that on Friday I wouldn't doubt that the right situation with a LeBron as team with a Colby on his team. You can get to about ten or eleven points committed play. 1520 minutes I wouldn't doubt that at all effective he's in shape. The injuries were erratic and things of that nature sounds like Jones. -- -- I think that's absolutely ridiculous half time Manny was the greatest player of all time you're there is no way today's game at age fifty. That guy is averaging. Double figure points. It's I disagree. I think he did it you know why just because the converse a superstition we just had -- not that there are always guys do drugs in the NBA right now I'm not thinking that I Jose at all but there are a lot of guys in the he's been paying on based on talent they're not dedicated their craft -- you how many people he's. Is dedicated to beating Michael Jordan babies don't manipulate it a hundred -- hundred LE at night when smoke weed before the game because they're -- motivated to beat him off the dribble because they could put you know if she got what you've. -- team's probably ever try to run a hundred once again on the numbers right front Amir might have but. You think about. Guys in the league in average 8910 points a game there's a lot of those guys out there may be got a double double to get my three year old rapidly all Mickael think about the now with the referees give Michael Jordan some calls though he drives the line is he gonna get Michael Jordan rules where he dresses. He gets pumped to go a lot he's gonna get -- points at the free throw line. The mythical status we've you know assigned to Michael Jordan he's earned it because he's the greatest player ever but I think that ignores the fact that. His muscles do terror in his -- well rip and then the injury reality. -- fifty going up and on the floor will be something he could not over a matter how great lately agree. These areas of the giants' problem I'm saying if he was healthy I think he could do it but you're right -- might come. One day score ten next they scored twelfth -- he might have a pulled muscle depending on who who -- exactly that's.
