NB85-9: Michael Jordan’s rookie NBA season – Bulls at Pistons (Nov 7), Knicks (Nov 8) – 1984 | Podcast


Michael Jordan soars baseline versus the Knicks

Adam & Aaron celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Jordan‘s (1984) arrival in the National Basketball Association. This episode covers:


* Chicago at Detroit – November 7, 1984

* Chicago at New York – November 8, 1984


In this episode, we discuss the sixth and seventh games of MJ’s professional career. We were fortunate to have access to the game DVDs, giving us plenty of topics and moments to talk about. These contests must rank as two of his most-spectacular rookie games – his visit to Detroit turned into a slam-dunk fest; his first regular-season appearance in New York, was punctuated by a cavalcade of amazing moves and jams.

Aside from a focus on Jordan’s burgeoning career, we cover numerous sub-plots, individual milestones, amusing moments and minutiae from both games.

This episode continues our coverage of the 1984-85 NBA season. We encourage your interaction. Feel free to suggest specific games, moments and events from within the season, for us to cover in future episodes of the series. Thanks for taking the time to listen to the show.
