    It's better than the 85 gold or sapphire and the ruby dunker. I dropped 68 my first game with him. The lower speed will honestly just force you to play smarter with him. This one is insane in the post.

    Well said. There's so much more to Jordan than driving to the hoop and dunking on the whole team.

    yeah his and 1 are good

    To me, he is better than Ruby Dunker mj and Sapphire. Last game I played he was 4 for 5 from three off my bench. He has an amazing release and a large "green" window.

    He is a tad slow, but can keep up with most players with his 99 defense. I usually only notice it on a fast break.

    On offense he can cross over anyone, it's weird, almost like they move out of his way. I look forward to using him more until I can afford a better mj or get that PD.

    Oh and by the way, he has had the sickest dunks so far of the 3 mjs I have tried, including the dunker ruby.

    Forgot to mention, his free throw is a weekness and he will miss sometimes like Lebron does.

    Also, I recommend getting him with all his badges.

    0

    other players move out of the way when he crosses over because they don't want to be the next Byron Russell

    he's pretty cheap should i get him over 90 91 92 93 or onyx kobe or is he way worse becuz I'm considering him to save money

    Get 93 mj just as good or better than 96 I had both

    How does he get a 99 overall when James Harden, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have better seasons and they don't get past 96 overall, Kevin Love put up better stats with the T-Wolves and he only got an 89 overall for that. Heck even Jerry Stackhouse had a better season (2000-01) and he doesn't even have a card! Monta Ellis, Lebron, T-Mac, D-Wade, AI, Vince Carter, Baron Davis (no card either), D-Rose the list goes on of players who have had better seasons than MJ's 1997-98 season and aren't rated above 96 (except Lebron.)

    Bud. Similar stats does not mean they are the same caliber of player. Do you think Karl-Anthony Towns in college was worse than Tyler Harvey?

    Well in Jordan's prime those guys weren't as good but this isn't his prime. It's like giving Kobe a 95+ overall because he was a top 3 player in the 2000's at least. Jordan wasn't the best player in 1998 (the MVP was BS) and didn't do close to enough to deserve a 99, caliber shouldn't mean anything since it doesn't measure how good someone is at that time, Michael Jordan cards are the only ones with BS ratings too so I don't think 2K judge by caliber on anyone else.

    While this card is a tad too high, it's not out of this world high. His defense at that point still was the best in the league for guards and around this time his post fade had become one of the most effective moves in league history. Sure while some of his defensive stats are high (80 low post IQ I cant defend), they still are near representative of how amazing his defense was. Maybe you can take down his athleticism a little, put the driving dunk to an 80, change the post control, but other than that the card is fine, sure it'd be better suited as a 97 or a 98, but it still is a fine card.
    Also the MVP was BS? Without Jordan that season, the Bulls would have fallen apart when Pippen was out (he only played 44 games that season). Even with that deficit the Bulls finished with 62 wins, tied for the best record in the league. The only other person you could give that award to was Malone, who's team remained healthy throughout the season.
    Also in case you haven't noticed, Kobe and Duncan's ratings are both rated higher than they should have been this year.

    To me it looks like this year 2k took peoples total careers into account, not just going by the stats of that year. For example, look at Wilt's gold cards, they have good passing for a big man, but he didnt have crazy assists those years. However, he did lead the league in assists once, so they gave him those stats.

    However, this card deserves to be 99 based on attributes. It has a lot more total attributes than gold lebron, one of the best 98 overalls. What you should be questioning instead of funneling your Jordan hate is wondering why PD curry is a 99 overall but onyx dr. j isn't. smh

    -2

    Well, they shouldn't... That Curry is an MVP pink diamond, which honestly I don't think he really deserved but it's a PD so 2K can do what ever they want.. Dr.J a 99? First you have to tell me what makes him better than Adrian Dantley and Bernard King, below 90 overalls.

    1

    Curry has 3200 something attributes and is a 99, but onyx dr. j has either 3600 or 3800 and is a 98.

    I could be due to positions, like the 17 worst cards by total stats are centers or PF's but none of them are the lowest rated player, SF Jakkarr Sampson is.

    He would have been a lower overall if his name wasn't "Michael Jordan"

    Yep, it's annoying.

    Just pick him up for 108000 which I thought was pretty cheap. Just wondering if anyone knows of he shoots threes well or if he will still dunk with an 84 dunk. Thank you!

    If you think this Jordan sucks, then you should consider quitting NBA 2k15.
    Says 84 dunk, feels like 92-95, Says 73 standing 3s, feels like 88 at least. His post game and especially his fade away is OP!
    Midrange is also very very good.
    I love this card. He´s a beast.

    Lol u got 2 excited this jordan is trash compared 2 93 n 96 I had every jordan other than 91 u can't take games over like u can wit 93-96 mj this mj feels way 2 slow always gets his shot contested due 2 it and his 3pointer is ass same with his dunking misses at least 1-2 dunks a game

    1

    This was my first MJ (Got the 95-96 now) but saying this Jordan is trash is just dumb. Yeah he aint as fast as the others but he still took games over for me. Just use him right....
