Got Next Jordan tab from Cleveland State coach Kevin Mackey in 1986; played in oblivion with Clippers before riding MJ's coattails to three titles.
Baby Jordan hype flared after he won slam dunk titles, in '93 and again in '95; by fall '96 he was out of the NBA.
Averaged 19.7 points in first four years: since slowed by injuries and breakup of would-be Orlando dynasty.
Five-time All-Star and triple-double machine has the goods (career 21.6 point scorer) but has yet to advance past first round of the playoffs.
Like Jordan, left North Carolina early and shoots at will; has unMikelike .416 career field goal percentage.
