Friday Five - Michael Jordan Moments

I had the honor of being at the Basketball Hall of Fame news conference this morning, and then at the actual enshrinement ceremony tonight. I wanted to be there just for Michael Jordan, who I regard as the greatest basketball player ever, and ESPN selected as the best athlete of the 20th century back in 1999.

Now, I was planning on tracking down my top five Jordan moments on YouTube, but ESPN.com did the heavy lifting for me.

That said, their list is slightly different from mine, so here are my top 5:

No. 5 - 1988 Slam Dunk Contest (ESPN.com’s #9)


No. 4 - Dunk over Patrick Ewing (ESPN.com’s #8)


No. 3 - “The Shot” (ESPN.com’s #2)


No. 2 - The Flu Game (ESPN.com’s #6)


No. 1 - The Last Shot (ESPN.com’s #1)
