Adam & Aaron celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Jordan's (1984) arrival in the National Basketball Association. This episode covers:

- NBA regular season - November 25 through December 9, 1984

- Insightful early-season 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 1984-85 NBA season. The Chicago Bulls played seven games in this span - five wins and two losses - continuing their run of hot and cold streaks.

We talk about an incident at a Bulls training session, involving David Greenwood and Sidney Green; each fighting - literally and figuratively - for on-court minutes. We also unveil a new 'NBA Trivia' feature. How strong is your basketball knowledge?! We chat about the NBA's best-performing players, milestones reached and much more. Further, you'll learn about a bizarre, in-game promotion that received a very 'chili' reaction. The episode is punctuated by a whirling dervish of high-scoring performances, from two superstars with contrasting offensive prowess; Larry Bird and Dominique Wilkins.

This episode continues our coverage of the 1984-85 NBA season. We encourage your interaction. Feel free to suggest specific games, moments and events from within the season, for us to cover in future episodes of the series. Thanks for taking the time to listen to the show.
