      Of course he can't levitate or stay in the air that would mean he's able to fly but your perception is reality but he's so good at what he does "MJ" he makes you believe he's levitating ! The goat 🐐!

      That's the most iconic dunk of MJ. But its nothing compared interms of beauty and difficulty to his "reverse elbow dunk" You guys must search it. I also know a video of MJ with one handed 360 dunk that maybe all of you didn't know.

    You also forgot that in the 94-5 season we got to see that the bulls were not elite with Pippen as the star player. To maintain that level of intensity to even win 3 in a row is intense. Though the bulls were the juggernaut of the 90’s, losing Horace and Cartwright left them very small and it’s hard to win an efficiency battle when the other team is getting layups from big men and you are shooting midrange and 3 (and Steph and Klay are not on your team)

      Nobody did. The content creator is scraping for content. Also, nobody thought Bird was the best 3 pointer because he sat in the back undefended, shooting 3s but because he played a full game and when it was clutch, could hit those threes.

    Love your videos, but saying that Bird isn't one of the best shooters of all time by comparing his numbers to today's standards is the same as saying that Mark Spitz isn't one of the best swimmers of all time because his records in the 70s wouldn't be enough to even qualify for the 2020 olympics.

      @Brandon Cooke: She was saying that Jordan DID more with his body to foster the illusion that he was hanging in mid air than most other players. I don’t know why you interpret the word “did” as meaning that he actually defied gravity. That’s not what the words “do” and “did” mean. If you’re DOING something to create an illusion, then you’re still DOING.

      I always understood hang time to mean length of time in the air, not some flat earth belief in stalling in the air. I mean punts have hang time defined as length of time in the air, literally clocked and shown on screen with no one ever saying it paused in some way.

    Strange view of hang time. I always thought hangtime meant people stayed in the air longer because they could jump higher , not because they could actually hang, hover or levitate.

  • JD's Variety Channel - Treasure Quest Chronicles

    I think the key to "hang time" is making it look like you're not moving in the air. Most players these days are always contorting their body and trying to do something flashy. If you watch some of the longest dunks recorded their knees are tucked in they are holding their arm out with the ball and just waiting to reach the rim, as if they're floating. Nothing fancy, but it looks like they're up there forever.

    Jordan still holds the NBA record for the highest vertical. They were trying to figure out his hang time even in the 80’s and they may have the scientific data that shows he is not actually hanging in the air but look at the highlights and it’s the vertical plus talent and MJ is just the best at it.

      The FT line was further back than it is today.

    • inefekt69
      inefekt69 Miesiąc temu

      Which one? He did multiple FT line dunks, the most famous of which, obviously the very first one in the ABA in 1976, he did with almost his entire front foot OVER the line:
      plclip.com/video/0Cdy_JP13NE/wideo.html&ab_channel=NBA
      He did it again in 1984 but again, his entire foot was in front of the free throw line:
      plclip.com/video/EcYwzsxWsEQ/wideo.html&ab_channel=ProHoopsDaily
      In 1985 he did the same dunk a third time and was even further beyond the line, perhaps 2 feet over:
      plclip.com/video/9Owpz92eQgU/wideo.html&ab_channel=ProHoopsDaily
      So, none of the Dr J FT dunks I could find were behind the line, or even close to it as his heel wasn't behind, his entire foot was over the line. MJ's FT line dunk shown in this video at 3:09 shows a good portion of his front foot BEHIND the line, so MJ was further back, not Dr J. I'll gladly be proven wrong if you can link to a Dr J dunk that shows his foot 'much further back' than MJ's...

    If jordan stays either the bulls hang on to grant or replace him the same way they did w Rodman in 96. All though I do agree jordan was burnt out and saying he would win 8 straight is insane.

  • CanthusOfCandE
    CanthusOfCandE 5 miesięcy temu +6

    Another point about hangtime. If you hold the ball at a constant height as he did it masks the parabala of the jump compared to holding the ball at a stretch, which is what he does in these clips, holding it at waist-shoulder level for most of the jump and then pushing for it right at the last second. So the ball seems to rise, plateau and then rise rather than rise, briefly peak and then descend.

    I would argue on the Bird one that the degree of difficulty on his shots has only one rival, Steph.

    I saw the name "Johnny Dawkins" and it sure brings back memories of him at Duke vs. Mark Price...Price was a PG and Dawkins was a shooting guard that couldn't shoot from outside but was more like an Allen Iverson-lite in that he was sooo quick, he got his buckets with the penetration moves instead of outside shooting. I remember at Duke, right before the first-half buzzer, he had a breakaway of sorts w/only one defender. He went up over him - at 6'1" - and did a reverse jam on him so I could totally see him in a slam-dunk contest.
    MJ and Dominique Wilkins were the best 'dunkers' in history IMO, but there sure were a lot of really good ones...

    Bulls 94 were pretty good and Grant was still there. Add MJ to that team and I think they have a good chance.
    If Bulls 95 end up being the roster it was back then, I dont see the bulls winning it all either. But I can speculate that had the Bulls gotten a ring in 94 and with MJ still being there, they could have managed to sign a better PF and build a better roster overall.

    "Hang time" has never meant "time spent paused in mid-air;" it has always been well-understood to mean simply how long a person jumping stays in the the air - from the moment his toe leaves earth to moment in lands.

    Another great video and very well done. I just want to remind the audience that Bird growing up never had a 3 point line in high school or college and the line was new in the NBA in Bird's rookie season. Bird's first coach, as well as many other coaches at the time discouraged the 3 point shot. Bird even admitted that he did not practice the 3 point shot until just before the 3 point shoot out at the all star game. I would have loved to see Bird in todays era!!

    Michael might have scored more on his late return but numbers don’t show how Michael presence during an entire season effects the entire performance of a championship level team. As well that his stats in the second three peat don’t matter as much since the offense was significantly decentralized from Jordan with the triangle offense which significantly improved his game as a team member

    I gave up on basketball after middle school, in middle school I was 5' 8" so I was taller than most of my classmates. I played on an intermural basketball team where the only person taller than me was out center at 5' 11". I hoped I would get a big growth spurt throughout highschool, but only ended up gaining 2 more inches and a lot of weight. Granted covid started junior year and I am still trying to burn off the covid weight, I'm comfortable for my height and I can do well in street ball, but anything above that and I can't compete. Though I have massive shoulders and a decent wingspan, but small hands combined with the weight don't help, used to play in post with my friend and then he ended up being 6' 3". P.S the guy who was 5' 11" ended up being 6' 2" and switched from basketball to baseball.

    I'm so confused. For 40 years, I always thought hang time was universally understood to mean time spent off the ground. Had I misunderstood it this whole time? Does it, as this video claims, mean to sustain the peak elevation of the jump over time? It's hard to believe everyone believed Jordan broke the laws of physics.

    • Dru Won
      Dru Won 5 miesięcy temu

      You're saying the definition of hangtime in basketball has always just been equivalent to vertical height and length of jump ? Thats not how most people have always viewed hangtime or it never wouldve been called hangtime ...
      For most it's always meant what SEEMS like the ability to stay in the air longer compared to someone with similar jumping capabilities. Even when most of us know it's an illusion with other factors involved. Jordan for instance could do things in the air that most players with similar jumping ability couldn't which is why people have always said "hanging in the air"

      @GoodRebelMusic well, the curvature of the earth is the only thing that could possibly add any amount of hangtime to a jump (unless they have some way to fly or float momentarily) lol I mean if you shoot a bullet from your gun and drop a different bullet at the exact same time, both of the bullets are gonna hit the ground at the exact same time. Having the same amount of hang time. (The earth curves an incredibly small amount constantly since it's a circle. So I guess there might be some incredibly tiny increment of time that the curvature of the earth would add to the amount of hang time. However, that amount would be negligible, and is ignored.)

And Believe or not,I've done it before In my youth🤷🏾‍♂️.
    And Bird is top 3pt shooter ever,isn't just because of volume & percentage. It's cause he's gr8 at hitting them in pressure/clutch moments. Sometimes when things are too good to be true,Sometimes it is true.👍🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

      Exactly. While I don't believe the Bulls were winning eight straight either (winner's fatigue and what not), using the Bulls losing to the Magic in 95 as proof of the "eight straight legend" being a myth lacks serious context. After losing Grant (free agency), Cartwright (traded), and Paxon (retired), the Bulls struggled in the regular season before Jordan's return. When he did return, he only played 17 games and the Bulls were able to make the playoffs as a fifth seed. No one should have realistically expected them to win it all. Yes the Bulls lost at the end of the day, but that take wasn't it from Jimmy.

After Grant left they needed Rodman and I wouldn't count out some of the bench moves they made as well after their loss to Orlando. I would also credit Rodman as being the MVP of the 96 finals against Seattle. Hard to do if you're not a leading scorer and especially on the same team as Jordan, but in that series, he deserved it. No criticism of the rest of the Bulls, but they lacked that one key element and Rodman gave it to them. Once he joined there was no hope for the rest of the league.

Even good HIGH SCHOOL players make damn near every shot they put up when they’re just shooting around. I’m not talking about 5 star recruits going to UCLA after they graduate, I’m talking about unranked nobodies that are going to in n out after they graduate lol. Any solid basketball player that has a good jumper knocks down like 80 percent of their shoot around jump shots. I could literally go into the gym today, literally a nobody, and get a video of me making 10+ wide open 3s in a row, let alone NBA PLAYERS lol. Making jump shots and getting buckets are two different things.

      @Melcavic42 degree of difficulty counts whe your comparing similar play styles, when your consistently MAKING harder shots it should be noted. But you completely ignored the fact that he’s consistently scoring 3’s at a higher volume. Plus the actual skill of shooting has levels. Have you never played before? A stand still catch and shoot 3 is infinitely easier than running off of a screen, or even off the dribble, which he’s great at. And since you mentioned AI(a different type of player entirely, I’d like to compare him with someone with a similar play style) Jamal Crawford never had the same touch as ai, and was never a better player, but the degree of difficulty of his shots were even more impressive than AI’s. J crossover was the better SHOOTER and that shows with Jamal leading the all time leaderboards with 4point plays.

      @Bryan Chandler even at the youth level and up as recently as the 90s taking a three, especially contested 3 was considered a bad shot and even selfish in a way. Ask this analytics stuff and odds of winning math did not come out till fairly recently and then even that took some years to fully implement. Now teams literally play 5 wings and no center its wild how much sports have all changed in favor of offense and more risk taking. More teams going for 4th downs like some kids knew going back to madden but took the NFL another 2 decades to have less punts. Harden makes sense because he was the main shooter on a 5 wing team and was launching 3s by the dozen per game lol. Sheesh honestly watching 5 guys basically stand there, no pick and roll, just wait for your turn to chuck a three was the most boring 3 years ever. Then in the playoffs it proved it's not really how you won when guys are playing harder, less fouls are called.

      @RemyKingKen this isn't gymnastics bro, degree of difficulty points are not added in to your shooting %. It's possible that having a better team around you would give you better shots per night and your % would increase but that's totally a hypothetical. I was gigantic Iverson fan dude played threw more pain and daily grind injury cause of his play style but often by the end of the night he was 13/35 to get his 33 points with foul shots. He had some great teams around him but his shooting% never got better in only using that as an example of a great player that i know pretty well who was a volume shooter with better teams than dame has but it didn't help his shooting%. Not comparing their shooting ability.

      @Melcavic42 honestly the thing about harden that blows my mind is that he's number fourth on all time three-point makes like what the fuck?

      Dude imagine if he would of never got hurt and missed almost 3 seasons. That's at least 500 3pointers he would of had to add to his stats. The way these guys are shooting they all are going to pass REGGIE MILLER CAREER TOTAL 3POINTS MADE IN HALF THE SEASONS IT TOOK HIM THATS JUST INSANE
