Michael Jordan's rookie NBA season - Bulls at Celtics (Mar 6), vs Clippers (Mar 8), vs Jazz (Mar 9) - 1985 - NB85-22

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

- Chicago at Boston - March 6, 1985

- L.A. Clippers at Chicago - March 8, 1985

- Utah at Chicago - March 9, 1985

In this episode, we discuss the sixty-first, sixty-second and sixty-third 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, the Bulls travel to the storied Boston Garden. Next, we chat about the L.A. Clippers' stop in Chicago - their sole trip to the Windy City, for the season. We conclude by covering another home game, this time, against the visiting Jazz of Utah.

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.
