Michael Jordan 1996-98

I finally decided to make my own Jordan CAP this year, and uploaded it to the 360 server. DOWNLOAD IT NOW! I probably have the most accurate ratings for Jordan (I.E. not 99 in every category) as let's not forget this is age 32-34 (post-prime) and he wasn't the elite athlete of his younger days.

Michael Jordan

Offense 97
Defense 97
Rebound 58

Overall 99
Inside 92 - might be too high, maybe lower it to 90?
Close 95
Medium 95
3PT 72
LowPost 95
FreeThrow 83

Good to see his rebounding where it needs to be. People often overlook that. I know you've probably been asked this a billion times, but do you prefer any sliders particularly? The default setup is fairly irritating to me.

over-rated!

I made a '98 Jordon and it was pretty similar, afew things I had different (different enough to warrant mentioning anyway)

Inside - 90
Medium - 95 (the mid range fade away was his bread and butter and he had probably one of the best mid range games of all time post-retirement)
Low Post - 91 (the CAP became a little TOO unstoppable down low any higher)
Def Clutch - 99 (made huge defensive stops, including the famed strip of Malone that step up The Shot)
Speed - 88
Quick - 90
Vert - 88
Emotion - 99 (Unless I've misinformed, I'm told the Emotion ability helps you draw fouls easier, and this was Jordon so I'd say he got easy calls)

I never played more than afew games with my CAP, but I'll try your's. Looks pretty fair, not over-rated anywhere really. People sometimes do forget just how good Jordon was.

@Shelb....you are a complete idiot...Jordan not Jordon and to say he got easy foul calls because he was "Jordan' is about as dumb as saying Lady gaga has real talent lol freaking idiot and wtf is up saying "people just forget how good Jordan was" looooooooool oh yeah just how i forgot how good Shaq was in the 90s and how good the 72-10 Bulls were and how i forgot how dominant Olajuwon was in the low post
