Celebrating Michael Jordan's 50th: Analyzing the college years

In honor of Michael Jordan's 50th birthday, I decided to play a game of sorts with his North Carolina numbers. Although he played prior to the advanced-stats era, it was possible to create estimations from existing data. I obtained the Tar Heels' season box scores from the Jordan years and then worked with John Ezekowitz of the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective to estimate Jordan's efficiency ratings and advanced statistics for each of those seasons.
