Happy Birthday MJ! What’s Your Favorite Jordan Highlight?


Today we are gathered here to celebrate the birthday of the GOAT. We are no longer debating whether or not MJ is the GOAT. If you disagree, you’ll have to vent in the comments.

On this glorious day, I thought it would be the perfect time to reflect on the moments that put Jordan in the conversation of being the GOAT, to later owning the title.

What’s your favorite Michael Jordan highlight of all time? Yes, there are many. Like, a lot! Some of y’all might know your favorite highlight off the rip, while others may have to think on it or visit YouTube.

Do whatever you gotta do, but take a minute or two and share your favorite moment in the comments.

To refresh your memory or educate, the video below is MJ’s Top 50 All Time Plays.

  • [ ] close to tears…. Watcing MJ play live and living in Chicago during the ’85 Bears season has added quite a bit of seasoning to my journey…

    Crying Jordan at the Hall of Fame of course.

    Haven’t watched the video yet but I definitely will. Off the top of my head my favorite highlight had to be the switching hands lay-up only because I was practicing the hell out of that move. My favorite game was actually when my Celtics beat MJ during his last year on the Bulls. I could’ve sworn that Celtics team was gonna be good but Pitino messed around and traded a bunch of guys because of an off the court incident.

    ? Ummmm….Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the GOAT, sir.
    I know, i know….subject to one’s own opinion. But that’s mine ?

  • Jay

    I only seen Kareem at the end of his career but he’s definitely on that top list for me.

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    Fuck MJ, YA-ERRD!!

    But as far as the bball career goes, probably the “Last Shot” against Utah in ’98 since errbody in ‘Murica was pullin for “TGWH’s”(y’all try ‘n figure that out….), Stockton & Malone, to pull it off against MJ. ?? Damn “Nabiscos” were sick as hell lol.
    The 69-point game is #2 after that…i think.

  • Slam

    Gotta say it would be the layup-steal-jumper sequence in the ’98 finals. Layup to get within one, steal on Malone, jumper to win it. GOAT.

    But also 63 against the Cs, gamewinner in the ’97 finals, and the 55 he dropped on the Knicks the first time he came back.

  • javi

    Fuck MJ?..yet you continue to give him all your money WTF!!!!. Pretty sure he’ll take it?

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    Lol. I know the game you mean. I remember MJ being pissed about that L bcus the Celtics (paraphrasing MJ’s words…) “celebrated like they won the championship..” . i remember Walter McCarty being dumb-geeked after that win, too lol

  • DJR

    McCarty was a herb man (probably still is). I remember he got a chick at my school prego and she wasn’t even all that. I’m thinking damn man you knocking up chicks I could probably pull but you in the league hahahahahahaha.

  • You win!!!!!

  • javi

    Nobody cares about your stupid opinion hype. Get a hobby to keep you busy?

  • Thad Greer

    Aside from the more notable moments, I still can’t get enough of Jordan escaping Oak and Starks off the baseline and posterizing Ewing.

  • Heezyholly

    Jordan baseline dunk against my Knicks

  • Heezyholly

    Love my Knicks but that was my favorite too

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    I’m a Patrick Ewing/G’town fan. So that one AIN’T my favorite ?

  • David N

    That unhuman layup against the powder blue jersey’d Nets.

  • rico strong

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won
