Just when you think you have seen all the Jordan footage or heard all of the stories of MJ’s heroics or just athleticism, new footage or stories surface to remind you that you need to erase any doubt that MJ is the GOAT and accept that he’s underrated at all aspects of the game.

Check out this amazing video featuring over an hour of MJ footage from the 1990-91 season.  It’s not all dunks either.  The following is the description from the uploader of the video

Here’s a video I made highlighting just how remarkably skilled MJ was during the 90-91 season. All plays are from the 90-91 season. You’ll see the usual array of athletic plays, but I also added just as many (if not more) plays focusing on his footwork, post ups, fadeaways, defense, passing ability, spin moves, bank shots and use of his left hand — all those soft skills he mastered earlier than most people want to remember. 

Jordan’s 1990-91 season is my favorite because it perfectly blends his amazing physical capabilities with a mastery (yes, mastery) of the skills he used almost exclusively in the late 90’s. Here is my tribute to that season.

As a bonus I wanted to show a few statlines from that season. Statistically this was actually one of his most unusual.  He was consistent with a 31ppg average but didn’t have 1 50pt game or 1 triple double but when the finals came he turned into a boxscore killer averaging over 30pts & 10ast.
