Witness the birth of a genius.

Another YouTube gem. Highlights of Michael Jordan abusing San Antonio way back in ’84. In only his ninth pro game, he gave the Spurs 45 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. This was his first 40+ effort, but if you listen to the commentators, you’ll hear them mention that he had already scored 37 earlier in the season.

It’s all on display here. The creativity, the relentless assault on the rim, the steals, the yet to be perfected jump shot, the hang time, the passing ability, the ball-handling. Ali is probably the only athlete to ever make greatness look so damn good.
