Michael Jordan's rookie NBA season - Spurs (Nov 13), 76ers (Nov 17) at Bulls - 1984 - NB85-11

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

- San Antonio at Chicago: November 13, 1984

- Philadelphia at Chicago: November 17, 1984

In this episode, we discuss the ninth and eleventh games of MJ's professional career. We were fortunate to have access to the game DVDs, giving us plenty of topics and moments to talk about. In our first game for discussion, Jordan lights up the Spurs with one of his seven, 40-plus (point) games of the 1984-85 NBA season. Following that masterclass, MJ's Bulls are schooled by The Doctor and his rampaging Philadelphia teammates.

Aside from a focus on Jordan's burgeoning career, we cover numerous sub-plots, individual milestones, amusing moments and minutiae from both games.

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.
