If Jordan was in the league today then he would probably be ranked as the number 1 player in the NBA to be honest.
The freedom of movement that players are given today would be perfect for Jordan. In the 1990s, hand checking and lack of foul calls for Jordan made the game harder for Jordan but he still dominated every part of the game.
Jordan averaged 8.2 free throw attempts per game and made 6.8 of them for his career. The attempted free throws would probably go up to 11 in the league today. As for the banning of hand checking, it would be much easier for Jordan to just glide to the basket.
Jordan's outstanding athletic feats wouldn't be as insane as they were in the 80s and 90s since athletes today are more athletic, but he would still be one of the most athletic players ever with his 46 inch vertical, third all time behind Wilt Chamberlain and Darrell Griffith, 48.
Jordan's best season averages today (still playing in the triangle offense): 36.3, 7.2, 6.8, 2.8 spg, 1.3 bpg
