Some have called it the greatest move of all-time. Other have called it the most overrated, while many others thought it was unnecessary. Regardless of how you feel about it, Jordan’s “spectacular move (Marv Albert voice)” against the Lakers in the final minutes of a Game 2 win in the 1991 finals has become one of the most famous moves in sports, not just basketball, history.

What often doesn’t get mentioned about Jordan in this game was his stat line of 33 points (15 of 18 shooting), 13 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block in just 36 minutes. ¬†Oh yeah and the Bulls won that game by 21.
