It's marvelous the way Jordan has developed and matured over his career. He clearly has a singular talent that may make him boat-loads of money some day. He could probably stand to add a few pounds, but his slender frame and his flexibility are key assets for him; he doesn't want to try to bulk up at the expense of losing those. A guy with his kind of build can take contact on one part of his body without causing him to flinch and lose the touch on his shot. I'm fine with the number of shots he's taking. I really don't want to see him taking more, as long as the rest of the offense is clicking. But it's nice to know that he will be there to put up a big one when they need it.
