never knew he ran a 4.3 40..

his competitiveness and fierceness impressed me so much.. when he was zoned in, no one could do anything.. it was just impossible to stop him.

Yeah, he ran a 4.3 in college after his huge growth spurt where he shot up by 4 inches or something.  He had the small joints and reactivity to be really fast without having that much muscle.  I think he was only 180-190 pounds when he started playing.  He lifted more so that teams like the knicks and pistons couldn't try to stop him by being super physical with him.  He definitely got stronger and bigger, but I think he lost some of his athleticism.  Didn't matter too much though because he shot the ball a lot better as he kept playing.

When people see Kobe get mad at teammates or asked to be traded or something, they really are seeing the same desire to win that MJ had.  MJ was really hard on his teammates whenever they made mistakes and was also critical of management when they made moves he didn't like, like when the they traded for Bill Cartwright.  They both wanted to win so badly that they couldn't tolerate anyone else messing up.

i heard MJ beat the shit out of steve kerr during a practice... true? haha

mj's fade away = gold..

his fadeaway is similar to kareem's sky hook, hardly anyone will ever master those shots.. im surprised you dont see sky hook type shots anymore, kareem just had some sick finesse.. i think yao uses it occasionally.. but last one to actually do it was olajuwan .. /tangent

;)

This was a nice game by him.  Don't know if some people find the music annoying but you could just mute it.

Gerald Wilkins, Dominique's brother, was pretty athletic and known for being a pretty good defender but in this game Jordan was way too quick for him in the half-court.  Rick Pitino was coaching the knicks at that time and he had that full court press he liked to use.  The press gave MJ a few open jumpers also resulted in him dunking the ball and hitting Patrick Ewing in the face.

love the reverse layup at 38..

one of my favorite dunks all time is when mj goes baseline on starks and dunks on ewing.. so crazy

one of my other favorites is KJ over olajuwan.
