HelpfulSilver4I'll Drink to That

So a lot of people know this story that has been told by JR Rider and Kevin Garnett on podcasts in the last couple years. About how they were doing well against the Bulls, Kevin Garnett started saying JR was too strong for Michael, in front of Michael, and Michael then went off and the Bulls blew them out.

Like a good Redditor with access to the internet, I went ahead and located the game in question (2/27/1996, Box Score Per Basketball-Reference) and found not only when MJ went off, but also an image of this event.

Here on the Game Highlights, with 1:32 left in the 3rd quarter and the Bulls leading by 2. MJ attempts to post up JR, and JR fouls him, and Garnett then grabs JR and starts talking to him. As the game goes to commercial, you can see Garnett continuing to hold JR and talk, while MJ himself appears for just a second in the corner of the screen. This is a screenshot of the moment in question. Pretty lucky that the cameraman caught it.

Obviously things happened during the commercial break. As when they come back, Jordan is at the free-throw line, and then scores 8 points in the next 90 seconds (meaning that angry Michael Jordan scores roughly 256 points per 48 minutes if my math is correct). The announcer at one point even sys about MJ "I didn't think he was going to have 20 tonight, now he's got 33."

As per the Box Score, the Bulls went on to win by 21 points.

As a female of the Celtics organization, watching these last few days unfold has been heartbreaking.

Seeing uninvolved people's names thrown around in the media, including mine, with such carelessness is disgusting. This is a step backwards for women in sports who have worked hard to prove themselves in an industry they deserve to be in.
