March 22 1998: Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman visit Rookie Tracy McGrady, Marcus Camby, Chauncy Billups, and Doug Christie up North and the contest goes down to the wire. This was the season before Vince Carter arrived. Now imagine if that team had stuck together; by 2002, it was basically the late Cretacious for the what-could've- been Raptors of the early 2000's. Watch MJ steal the inbounds pass in the corner and focus on how he throws that pass upcourt to Steve Kerr (who pulled up and bricked a jumper). The use of floor level camera shots gives you a sense of how much more physical the game was and the players themselves were. I wasn't able to fit in the ending. Jordan hit a falling down fadeaway with 3 defenders draped on him to break a tie 20 seconds left. Raptors then find Doug Christie, who shakes Pippen and hits a deep 2 to even the score. Less than 10 seconds left, Jordan hits another contested fadeaway runner to put the Bulls back up 2. With 7 seconds left, Chauncy Billups raced down court to rush up an airball for 35ft. Game over. Jordan is seen on camera winking at the broadcast booth.
Kim Jong-un's boy doubled his point total with rebounds, again.
