1990-91 Jordan's second MVP season

By RJP Staff

As we prepare for the basketball season, we’d thought we’d wet your appetite with greatness. Chances are with all the back-to-backs and back-to-back-to-backs you’ll be seeing some bad basketball this from every team at least a few times this season.

Most Jordan enthusiast think they’ve seen it all, but just when you think you have seen all the Jordan footage or heard all of the stories of MJ’s heroics or just athleticism, new footage, interviews, or stories surface to remind you that you need to erase any doubt that MJ is the GOAT and accept that he’s underrated at all aspects of the game.

Check out this amazing video featuring just over an hour of MJ footage from 1990-91, his second MVP season.  It’s not all dunks either, checkout this description from the video’s creator:

Here’s a video I made highlighting just how remarkably skilled MJ was during the 90-91 season. All plays are from the 90-91 season. You’ll see the usual array of athletic plays, but I also added just as many (if not more) plays focusing on his footwork, post ups, fadeaways, defense, passing ability, spin moves, bank shots and use of his left hand — all those soft skills he mastered earlier than most people want to remember. 

Jordan’s 1990-91 season is my favorite because it perfectly blends his amazing physical capabilities with a mastery (yes, mastery) of the skills he used almost exclusively in the late 90′s. Here is my tribute to that season.

**As a bonus I wanted to show a few statlines from that season. Statistically this was actually one of his most unusual.  He was consistent with a 31 ppg average, didn’t drop 50 or record a triple double all season, but when the finals came he turned into a boxscore killer averaging over 30pts & 10ast.**
