(Relaxnews) – Find out about Jordan’s most memorable dunk, his dream team, and favorite court shoes in a four-minute video made for basketball game “NBA 2K14.”
“My most memorable dunk that I think about very, very often was on Patrick Ewing,” Jordan recalled. “And that’s only because Patrick and I are such great friends.”
“I dunked it so hard on him it was unbelievable! Every time I see him, that’s the first thing I remind him of,” he said with a smile.
Dikembe Mutombo also made Jordan’s list. “He knew it was coming: he did [the finger wag taunt] to everybody, he did in everybody’s building.”
“Scottie [Pippen] got him first and then I got him and he couldn’t answer, he couldn’t say anything.”
“But he’s blocked so many shots so I mean, if you’re a shot blocker that doesn’t bother you, you just wait for the next opportunity. I’m pretty sure he got me back at some point in time.”
“But to be able to do that to him? Oh, that was gratifying.”
Having spoken about his induction to the NBA, his trash talking code of honor, and current players he’d like to have played against in a video posted in October, Jordan here chose athletes for his personal all-star team: Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, and Hakeem Olajuwon — with them on court, Jordan said he would have “no chance of losing.”
Favorite shoes? The 11s, the 3s, then the 12 or 13s, in that order. But why did he wear a new pair every game?
“If you ever were a kid, if you ever put those shoes on for the first time, you feel energetic, like you’ve got something you can showcase. Well I wanted that feeling every game!” Jordan explained.
And on his best year? A number of seasons were in contention. But comparing 1992 and 1995, Jordan said that he had matured in his approach by the later season, and was able to compete “from a strategic standpoint rather than an athletic standpoint.”
