What sort of emotions run through a man’s head when he’s sitting on top of a gold mine, but doesn’t know it? The answer would simply be “nothing”, but the ’86 Boston Celtics and the Home crowd at the Boston Garden during Game 2 of the First Round match-up between the Celtics and the Chicago Bulls. For tonight’s feature of Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes?, we’ll focus on Michael’s “coming out” party – a performance that some call the greatest game ever played in NBA history.

Before we discuss Jordan’s Game 2 performance, let’s take a quick look at what went down that season. To be brief, there wasn’t much to talk about, except a broken foot that forced him out in the middle of the Bulls’ 3rd regular season game. A broken foot was the culprit, and Chicago Bulls Front Office executives intended to shut Michael down for the entire season as a precaution. After sixty-four missed games, Jordan returned to the Bulls roster and played limited minutes off the bench, but eventually made it back to the starting line-up with just one week of regular-season games to go.

A first-round match-up against the Boston Celtics was what lied ahead for the Bulls. To put it flatly, the Bulls didn’t have a shot against that Celtics team, which included Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish, Dennis Johnson, Danny Ainge, Bill Walton. The Celtics eventually won the NBA Finals that season, but perhaps it was Michael’s performances that whipped them into shape (the Celtics lost in the Finals the season before). Game 1 was on April 17th, and Michael hit half his shots and missed just two free-throws, totaling an amount of 49 points. That was Michael’s second best game of that Series.
