Every so often, we’re blessed to watch an athlete craft a transcendent performance.
Twenty years ago today — June 3 — Michael Jordan delivered one of those performances. It came in Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals when Jordan torched the Portland Trailblazers for six 3-pointers and 35 points in the first half, both playoff records. That game forever will be remembered for Jordan’s aw-shucks shoulder shrug toward the scorer’s table after he nailed his sixth 3 late in the second quarter.
