I wont go on a rant on why I still collect tangible media and prefer printed photos in a shoebox or photo albums over digital ones in a digital folder, but I can tell you that there’s a lot of fun going through old boxes of photos and occasionally stumbling across some old pic that you forgot about or didn’t know existed. It’s a type of fun that can’t be duplicated by scrolling through thumbnails. I’m assuming it’s a fun the founder of this rare Jordan pic felt when he stumbled across the above photo.

I’m sure you felt, like me, that we probably have seen every pic and angle of Michael Jordan from his Bulls’ days online, so it’s always a pleasure to come across rare treasure like these.

But you know, Jordan didn’t deserve the 1988 dunk contest, which me, Bill Simmons and Dominique Wilkins will tell you was rigged. If you don’t believe me then I suggest you read this explanation.

You can also watch the dunk as well as the missed free throw dunk attempt that NBA history tapes like to hide below (update: what a surprise, it’s been removed from YouTube).
