It should be clear that superstar numbers don't rise and fall perfectly with pace.
Im just looking at sheer numbers. It would be hard for a player to score at that rate with less opportunities to do so.
Sure perhaps on a bad team his stats could reach 80s level. But im assuming the whole Celtics squad and Magic and his Lakers squad are in the fray.
