Last week, ESPN was more or less totally dedicated to celebrating Michael Jordan's 50th birthday. And if you flipped by SportsCenter over the weekend, you probably also got sucked in when the Mothership began counting down Jordan's top-50 all-time moments. Spaced out over several hours, by the way. That was a brilliant and incredibly evil way to get you to watch five hours straight of the effing show.
Anyway, another random YouTuber also got into the ranking game today, and now we're left with another solid top-50 list. All the great moments are on here—the
Flu Hangover Game, the switch-hand layup against the Lakers, the Craig Ehlo shot. Its only downside? I could have used few more clips that feature his homicidally intense trash talking. Calling Mugsy Bogues a "fucking midget," thereby leaving the Hornet permanently mentally damaged and prematurely ending his career is a top-20 moment, no doubt.
Two warnings: 1. This is a really, really easy way to kill 15 minutes. 2. A related video features Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith arguing about whether Jordan could average double-digits at age 50. Just... Just don't watch it.
