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

- NBA regular season - February 8 through 22, 1985

- Insightful 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 five games in this span – one win and four losses.

We chat about the impending (majority) ownership of Jerry Reinsdorf and his (not-too-distant) personnel moves that would change the face of Chicago's franchise. We also talk about the NBA's best-performing players - including Larry Bird's astonishing, near quadruple-double - milestones reached and much more.

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.
