His scoring would go up a bunch, with his efficiency taking a slight hit due to being a more superstar oriented game at the time. I'd expect 30+ppg on about 52% shooting.
Could you name one player other than Michael Jordan and Karl Malone (during 1989-90 season) who average more than 30 ppg during the 90s ?
Just a hint: Shaq and Drob never scores 30 ppg during their careers, and the young AI was NBA leading scorer in 98-99 season with 26.8 ppg.
