Introduction: Michael Jordan remains one of the greatest impact players in NBA history. His presence on the floor carried games into overtime and brought six championships home to Chicago. This study looks at Jordan’s influence in the first 25 games of his inaugural 1991 championship season. Jordan had phenomenal numbers in offensives rebounds (ORB), personal fouls (PF), and assists (AST), all of which contributed to his points scored in the 21 wins and four losses of the first 25 games of the season (response variable). I predict that offensive rebounds will positively correlate with points per game seeing that with each rebound at the basket, an opportunity to score or be fouled is presented. In contrast I predict that personal fouls will have a negative correlation with points per game. This is because fouls tend to take players out of the game more frequently with the presence of preserving their playing time. Overall I expect there to be positive correlation that will explain Jordan’s outstanding playing ability, otherwise the only other reasonable explanation will be the trust his teammates held in him.
