Hoopsencyclopedia's thoughts on these clips:
-Opening Ad: I found this commercial hilarious with the opening line narration. The highlights were aplenty from Day One.
-0:51: Raw athleticism, talent and control. Cannot be taught nor bought.
-1:00: Big, swooping reverse from his 59pts against Detroit. MJ runs up court as soon as he launches knowing the shot is in from the start. He barely peeks afterwards just to confirm it's a swish. The hang-reverse was just another one of his go-to shots in the clutch.
-1:15: Perfect, efficient footwork at age 35. No need to blow by them when you can outwit. MJ improvises as only he can under help defender Keith Van Horn afterwards.
-1:31: Within the Master of Fades mini-montage, MJ pulls here the turn/leaner - yet another one of his mastered shots.
-1:34: The hanging, forward fade. An early, favorite during the 80s.
-1:34: The super-juke fade. Houston is not alone on the victims list.
-1:39: Beautiful baiting of the double only to turn away on a dime.
-1:50: After defying the laws of physics with his palming advantage, MJ drains the shot there.
-1:55: The big scoop. Another early crowd-pleaser.
-2:06: The one-handed, hanging jumper is probably my favorite shot since it's impossible to even attempt without, as Charles Barkley said, "having his Frying Pan Hands."
-2:12: I believe this one of his greatest dunks.
-2:34: At the flash, one lucky cameraman gets it right at the moment with MJ's head a few inches above the rim.
-2:37: Pass went to Pippen after the one-handed, super-hanger for the assist.
-2:40: Picture perfect fade in the lefty-direction. Is there anything more aesthetically pleasing? This is art. No need to show that the shot went in of course, since you knew anyway.
Thank Hoopsencyclopedia for the video.
Looking forward to the whole video.
