Dave Corzine and Michael Jordan - 1986

Adam & Aaron celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Jordan‘s second season in the National Basketball Association. This episode covers:

 

* NBA regular season – February 22 through March 8, 1986

* Insightful minutiae, all but lost to the annals of basketball history

 

In this episode, we discuss numerous happenings from the next 15-day block of the 1985-86 NBA season. The Chicago Bulls played seven games in this span – two wins and five losses.

Chicago continued to fight for playoff position, as the on-court return of Michael Jordan finally seemed a real possibility. In his absence, the great play of Michael Holton – a recent CBA All-Star signee – helped the Bulls steady the ship in a season riddled with significant injuries.

In other NBA news, the Boston Celtics became the first team to reach 50 wins for the season. That milestone also marked a seventh-consecutive season of 50-plus victories for the franchise.

Charles Oakley‘s star continued to rise as he was named February’s Rookie of the Month. His stellar play was putting pressure to perform on fellow teammate and Bulls veteran, Sidney Green. Tune in to hear this and plenty more, as we uncover some hidden gems from the NBA’s golden era.

Michael Jordan seeks a second opinion on his broken foot

Adam & Aaron celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Jordan‘s second season in the National Basketball Association. This episode covers:

 

* NBA regular season – February 7 through 21, 1986

* Insightful minutiae, all but lost to the annals of basketball history

 

In this episode, we discuss numerous happenings from the next 15-day block of the 1985-86 NBA season. The Chicago Bulls played six games in this span – two wins and four losses.

Michael Jordan sought second (and third) opinions on his broken foot, before ultimately making the difficult decision to postpone his would-be (February) comeback plans. His Chicago Bulls were facing the distinct possibility of missing the 1986 NBA Playoffs, if the team’s form continued to plummet.

In other NBA news, Alvin Robertson entered rarefied air, becoming just the second player in history (joining Nate Thurmond) to record a quadruple-double, in the San Antonio Spurs’ win versus the visiting Phoenix Suns.

Larry Bird continued to star, as his league-leading Celtics became the first team to register forty regular-season wins. Tune in to hear this and plenty more, as we uncover some hidden gems from the NBA’s golden era.
