Some have called it the greatest move of all-time.
Some have called it the most overrated.
Many thought it was unnecessary.
Regardless of how you feel about it, Michael Jordan’s “spectacular move (Marv Albert voice)” against the Lakers in the final minutes of Game 2 of the 1991 NBA Finals has become one of the most memorable highlights in sports (not just basketball) history.
What often doesn’t get mentioned about Jordan in this game was his spectacular stat line: 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.
THE SPECTACULAR MOVE
A fun moment after game: MJ left the Stadium to go out with good friends Spike Lee and @NBATVAhmad , and also made a new friend actor Denzel Washington. After shaking hands with Denzel, Lee whispered to Jordan: “Mike, he`s a Lakers fan.“ Replied Jordan: “We`ll convert him.“ pic.twitter.com/00RZGvwiEg

MJ’S GREATEST MOVE
Personally, I think this layup against the New Jersey Nets is MJ’s greatest move.
