Wow that was almost... Wade-like.

Just kidding... that guy was not playing the game on a human level. The godlike play every star swingman since has tried to emulate... but with MJ we actually were visited by a demigod. You know it, too, because he did it in every way, not just scoring a lot but also being the best shotblocker under 6'9 ever. He doesn't just block those shots he *stuff* them and *swats* them. Amazing.

It didnt include his last famous block as a Wizard when he did a game saving Block on Ron Mercer and pinned it against the backboard and grabbed it as a rebound. that was just amazing

Always loved the block at 1:56 on Mullin even if it was a foul - Jordan looks like he's literally flying and levitating, and he's crazy determined to get that block (check his face after he lands on Grant - dude WANTS to pack Mullin's shot).

there are still a few competitive NBA players today, but all of them together don't have half of what MJ had.

What Was More Amazing Was The Age When He Blocked That. What Was He 39 Years Old and Had Not Played Pro for like 4 Years?
