Chicago Bulls living legend Michael Jordan has plenty of iconic moments.
\He had his first when playing for the North Carolina Tar Heels in the 1982 NCAA men’s basketball championship game, hitting a game-winning shot to beat the Georgetown Hoyas. In the pros, Jordan won six championships and was the MVP of every Finals he played in. There was the switching-hands layup against the Los Angeles Lakers, the shrug versus the Portland Trail Blazers and of course, his final shot as a Bull when he defeated the Utah Jazz in 1998.
Then there was his series-clinching running jumper over Craig Ehlo and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1989 NBA Playoffs. It was a magical shot, putting Chicago into the next round. There is now perhaps the greatest Vine of all-time to celebrate that iconic play, per Insatiable July:
This is incredible. Jordan retired almost 15 years ago, and yet he remains a consistent topic in pop culture. He is still being put into video games and constantly is talked about when people ponder if he could still play premium minutes in the NBA. All of that might be the greatest monument to his dominance.
There needs to be more Vines like this. Can we get the Shaquille O’Neal dunk in the 2000 Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers in this style? How about a no-look Magic Johnson pass or LeBron James throwing down over Kevin Garnett? C’mon internet, we are counting on you.
