Michael Jordan says this 1991 dunk on Patrick Ewing is his best dunk ever

“I dunked it so hard on him it was unbelievable,” says MJ.

MICHAEL JORDAN REVEALED his most memorable dunk ever in a new promo for the NBA 2k14 video game.

He says a dunk in the 1991 NBA Playoffs on Patrick Ewing at Madison Square Garden takes the cake. His explanation:

“My most memorable dunk that I think about very, very often is the Patrick Ewing dunk. That’s only because Patrick and I are such great friends. [Charles] Oakley was a part of that whole process because he thought he could defend. We got into a screen-and-roll and I spun back and Patrick, I told him Georgetown guys don’t block shots they just take charges. And I dunked it so hard on him it was unbelievable.”

Jordan is one of the most competitive people in the history of sports, so it’s not surprising that he relishes a dunk over a friend.

Ewing now works for Jordan as an assistant coach with the Charlotte Bobcats (MJ’s the owner).
