    it's easy to dismiss MJ as an a-hole, but if you really look into it, you discover that beside personal ambition and extreme competitiveness, there was also the fact that he wanted to do things for other people: if you bought a ticket, he wanted you to get your money's worth; when doug collins had his first coaching game with the bulls, MJ told him "i am not going to let you lose your first game with us". and he always speaks with great warmth about rodman and pippen. they were his boys. was he hard on everyone? yes, no doubt. but was it all a "me, me, me" thing with him? absolutely not. he wanted company at the top. he wanted everyone there with him. and then of course, there was kobe. MJ turned himself into a reference library for that guy. those aren't the actions of a selfish man.

    Craig Sager at 2:54 "Starks told me moments ago the Knicks still plan to have him go one on one, no double teaming, he wasn't intimidated before and he's not now and he says he's eager for the challenge" To MJ : hold my beer after scoring 55 points, it wasn't much of a challenge.

    I don’t understand the Goat debate clearly MJ is above all. The defense is clearly much better in the 90s if you play basketball you know that is much difficult to score when you play physical basketball. Stept and harden even giannis dont have success on playing in playoff because its more physical in playoffs. In 90s the preseason is equivalent to NBA finals today Or maybe more physical back then.

    This is probably my favorite Jordan game that's not part of any of their 6 championship seasons. Jordan was only 3/9 in the 4th Quarter and 7/18 overall in the 2nd half. No doubt that the inactivity weakened his stamina. That, and the Knicks most likely increased the intensity of their defense. The block by Ewing around the 1:42:00 mark set up Jordan's pass to Wennington in the end of the game as a double-team was anticipated. Good IQ by Jordan and/or Phil Jackson.

    I was at this game 8 rows behind the Knicks bench!! It was my junior year in High School!! And me being a life long die hard Knicks fan and it was my 23rd Knick game I ever saw live my 18th at The Garden and 5 at the Meadowlands vrs The Nets (Im born, raised, and still live in New Jersey, East Orange aka ill town) Anyways I was so happy and pumped up for this game!! I had my white Anthony Mason Jersey on and The Garden was the ONLY arena where we would give Jordan and the Bulls HELL! There was always your group of front running Bulls fans at The Garden but they didnt act crazy cause they knew better they in MSG, COME ON NOW!!! LOL Jordan loved playing here 1 cause he was born in Brooklyn and 2 us Knick fans would give him hell and Jordan loved that about us lol!! But for some reason I knew he was going to have a great game!! He didnt miss anything!! Starks did not know what to do!! I remember yelling in the 4th quarter "Yo Starks!! WHAT IS UP DOG, DO SOMETHING TO STOP HIM" And Starks must of heard me cause he looked right at me and just shrugged his shoulders like he was saying im trying everything!! what you want me to do!!! But MJ could not be stopped that game, he was NBA JAM "HE'S HEATING UP"!! THEN ON FIRE LIKE FLAMES WERE GOING THROUGH THE BASKET EVERYTIME HE MADE A SHOT!!!! It proved he indeed was back!! And yea being a die hard Knick fan I was just in Awwww on his performance and he was loving every minute of it!!! My pops told me during the game "Shawn remember this game cause you will NEVER see a performance in person like Jordan is putting on right now"!! It was me 16 years old at the time, my pops, and my little brother Kevin who was 10 at the time and was the only knick game we ever went to that he didnt ask me pops to take him to the bathroom lol thats how much he was into what he was witnessing on that court that day!!! It still remains one of my favorite memories growing up and I will NEVER EVER FORGET THE DOUBLE NICKEL GAME NEVER!!! THE NIGHT JORDAN TOOK OVER MSG AND LET THE ENTIRE NBA THAT "HE'S BACK" SMH HE HAD 20 POINTS IN THE 1ST QUARTER ALONE I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO HIT 60 BUT HE WAS ONLY 5 POINTS AWAY FROM MY PREDICTION I TOLD MY POPS AFTER THE 1ST QUARTER!! AND ALSO THANK YOU TO MY POPS FOR SURPRISING ME AND MY BROTHER WITH THE TICKETS TO THE GAME THAT HE SHOWED US THE MORNING OF SMH THAT WAS MY POPS LOVED TO SURPRISE US AND SEE US HAPPY AND A SMILE ON MINE AND MY BROTHERS FACE ALWAYS!!! JUST HAD TO SHARE THIS MEMORY!! AND STILL IM A DIE HARD KNICKS FAN FOREVER
