Seven Lakers are off the books this summer. Hes the only one making more than $8.7M next year (Lonzo). If they let those players walk this summer they can surely afford that "good young talent." Players eventually flock to him, just as many top tier stars 1

We didnt start tracking games started until the 1980s. Someone like Kareem won 122 his first two seasons, and I cant imagine the Bucks brought him off the bench for much of those wins. His first NBA game ever he went for 29-12-6 in 48 minutes. 2

Yes, he would have had similar success. He had to score against defenders all over - not strictly just smaller SGs because thats the position he played. Defensive rotations and offensive movement dont mean guys like MJ were guarded only by smaller players 1

Also Jordan [averaged 31.1ppg against Dumars](https://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/tiny.fcgi?id=KM7cI) - including a 61pt game - so maybe he was just being facetious in his "praise" of Dumars. 1
