Avenging a loss to Dominique Wilkins three years earlier, Jordan soared from the free throw line and won the 1988 slam dunk contest during All-Star Weekend at Chicago Stadium. Some believed MJ benefited from friendly home judges, and Jordan even acknowledged he might have lost elsewhere, but fans in the Stadium didn't argue the outcome.

After MJ scored 63 points on April 20, 1986 -- the most points by a player in a postseason game, a record that still stands -- Larry Bird said it was "God was disguised as Michael Jordan." Jordan had missed much of that season -- his second in the NBA -- with a broken foot. The Bulls lost the series, but Jordan had made a statement.

 It became known simply as "The Shot." Jordan's buzzer-beater over Craig Ehlo in Game 5 of the 1989 Eastern Conference first-round series helped launch the legend of Jordan's clutch greatness. He finished that game with 44 points.
