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.



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