The Jordan Shrug is right up there with the Flu Game for the greatest tricks Michael Jordan ever pulled. You think Jordan was actually surprised hit all those threes? Of course not.
Love this kid. That’s how you celebrate a win right there. None of this Cam Newton dancing. None of this Peyton Manning quiet professionalism. This is a mind game. You fake shock on your opponent. It drives them insane. When you act surprised, your opponent let’s his guard down. Gets overconfident. Thinks, “aright that was a fluke, I got him this time”. Little do they know, you’re about to rip their heart out.
That’s why the Jordan Shrug is right up there with the Flu Game for the greatest tricks Michael Jordan ever pulled.
You think Jordan was actually surprised hit all those threes? Of course not. That was all a ploy to fuck with the Blazers heads. All just a way to trick the Blazers into thinking there might be a chink in the armor, so that he could rip their hearts out even more viciously. Same thing as the Flu Game. Jordan wasn’t actually sick. If you buy that you’re the biggest sucker in the world. You’re talking about a guy coming off the greatest movie ever made, Space Jam. You think he wasn’t just breaking out those acting chops again? Come on. It was all a show. He got Utah to let its guard down, and he crushed them. Classic Rope a Dope from Jordan. That’s why he’s the GOAT (who will actually only be considered the GOAT for a few more years once Porzingis hits his prime).
