      Here is the breakdown on Jordan:

      yr min pct sco reb ast stl (TO) blk - total
      02 35 .461 24.1 6.4 5.8 1.5 (2.8) .5 - 37.6
      03 37 .490 21.1 6.5 4.2 1.5 (2.1) .5 - 33.2

      Net of -4.4 per 36 x 3034/36 = -372

      Improvements were in shooting pct and turnovers. While this may
      equal improved offensive efficiency to some, he didn't make up for
      lessened scoring by increased assists. Rather, both were down
      significantly.

      Being on the floor more minutes and having less to do with the ball
      may suit certain offensive makeups. In this case, I think it was
      just the inevitable effects of age/fatigue. It's a pretty smooth
      continuation of the decline first noted about 1995.

      The 3 years off probably bought MJ another year or so of productive
      age. The rust was thicker last year (bad shooting %), but the fire
      had dimmed by this season.
