The NBA playoffs so far have been rather lackluster to say the least. Aside from the entertaining series between the Los Angeles Clippers and the San Antonio Spurs, the landscape of NBA hoops during this postseason has been pretty one-sided. Nonetheless, the thought of professional basketball operating under the premise of “finality” is still exciting as teams race to secure an elusive championship.

So, with all of this hoops action going on, it seemed fitting that within the latest edition of Nice Kicks Throwback Thursday, we take a look at the history of the iconic 63 point performance by Michael Jordan. Incorporating backstory from Larry Bird and Sonny Vaccaro, this edition of #TBT may be the best yet.

New Kid On The Block

By his second season in the NBA, plenty of people firmly understood the transcendent talent that Michael Jordan possessed. With his immense skill and ferocious competitiveness, Jordan would dominate during his rookie season by putting up averages of 28.2 points per game, 6.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists, along with securing Rookie of the Year honors. However, despite his affinity for success the Bulls continued to be one of the bottom dwellers within the Eastern Conference. 

Ultimately with the help of Sonny Vaccaro and the Nike brand, the star that was Michael Jordan would ascend to even higher heights.
