“The Shot” 25th Anniversary

May 7, 1989 — 25 years ago today, one of the most iconic Michael Jordan, and NBA moments happened. You’re no doubt familiar with this one, doubling as the late Johnny Kerr’s most signature reaction, “GOOD! The Bulls win! They win it!”, which is forever ingrained in my memory from childhood.

But have you ever seen this raw footage? I remember watching this awhile ago but ran it back today and was as equally astonished as the first play. These uncut reactions of both the media crew bum rushing MJ and MJ himself, just a moment or two after he hit the shot are simply phenomenal. Watch and enjoy, and hold your heads up today Bulls fans because even though we’re not in it today, we had some pretty amazing glory days.
