NBA 2K19: 1985-1986 Chicago Bulls Player Ratings and Roster

This Chicago Bulls team was extremely lackluster in performance among all other teams in the league during the 1985-1986 season. Part of these results could be chalked up to fact that the star player, Michael Jordan, suffered a foot injury mid season and could only play a handful of games for the team. Their season ended with a 30-52 record and they finished fourth in the NBA central division.  

Starting Lineup

Kyle Macy, PG (OVR 72)

Age: 29

Height: 6’3” 

Traits: Two-way point

Best Stats: 3pt, Ball Handling, Passing

Macy is an average player who fulfilled his job but didn’t exceed expectations. His strengths were not geared towards being a star player in scoring, but in aiding his team as a leader. Out of the 82 games he played as a Bull, he only had averages of 5.4 assists and 8.6 points per game.

Michael Jordan, SG (OVR 91)

Age: 23

Height: 6’6”

Traits: Two-Way Star

Best Attributes: Stamina, Vertical, Layups

Michael Jordan is easily one of best players of all time. Unfortunately, he had an injury that only let him play 18 games in this regular season.

George Gervin, SF (OVR 82) 

Age: 34

Height: 6’7”
