1992 NBA Finals chicago Bulls and the Portland Trail Blazers. Highlights from Game 1 and more. Michael Jordan was on Fire from downtown Records
Before a deafening crowd of 18676 fans at chicago Stadium, the Bulls defeated the Pistons, 94-83, in the opening game of the four-of-seven-game Eastern Conference championship series. Jordan, whose election as the league’s most valuable player will be announced Monday, was held to 22 points, 9 points below his playoff average, on 6-for-15 shooting along with three boards, three steals and six assists. But Jordan’s teammates stepped forward — the Bulls’ bench combined for 30 points and starters Scottie Pippen (18 points), Bill Cartwright (16 points) and Horace Grant (10 rebounds) stood up to Detroit’s physical play, holding off the Pistons whenever they threatened to take control. “I had a bad game, but we still won,” Jordan said afterward. “I think that shows the maturity of our team. I think this shows them that we’ve got a team, instead of a one-man situation.” Today’s game set the tone for the remainder of the series. There was very little open-court play, and there were very few scintillating offensive moves. This series will be physical. Bodies will fly. Tempers will flare. Skin will bleed. Character will be tested. There were times away from the ball when the action resembled a rugby scrum. Players shoved, held and did whatever else they felt they could get away with. “It’s a different style of ball when you play us,” said Mark Aguirre, who led the Pistons with 25 points. “They’re not going to be able to play us like Philly, where they got a lot of running and …
malcolmxfiles.blogspot.com In an interview on chicago TV with Jim Hurlbut, Malcolm X describes his early childhood and explains that his house was burned down by the Klan and that they murdered his father. Mr. HURLBURT: You were born in Omaha, is that right? MALCOLM X: Yes, sir. Mr. HURLBURT: And you left — your family left Omaha when you were about one year old? MALCOLM X: I imagine about a year old. Mr. HURBURT: And why did they leave Omaha? MALCOLM X: Well, to my understanding the Ku Klux Klan burned one of their homes in Omaha. There’s a lot of Ku Klux Klan– Mr. HURLBURT: They made your family feel very unhappy, I’m sure. MALCOLM X: Well, insecure, if not unhappy. Mr. HURLBURT: So you must have a somewhat prejudiced point of view — a personally prejudiced point of view. In other words, you cannot look at this in a broad, academic sort of way, really, can you? MALCOLM X: I think that’s incorrect, because despite the fact that that happened in Omaha and then when moved to Lansing, Michigan our home was burned down again — in fact, my father was killed by the Ku Klux Klan, and despite all of that, no one was more thoroughly integrated with whites than I. No one has lived more so in the society of whites than I. malcolmxfiles.blogspot.com

This early regular season game between chicago and LA was seen as a part of the Bulls’ farewell tour, given their age and the time they had already spent together. Pippen was out for months and to make matters worse, sharp shooter Steve Kerr received an injury too. And from the start of the first quarter the Bulls looked very old indeed. Uncharacteristic mistakes and a terrible percentage from the field gave the Clippers an early lead. Jordan had a lot of problems with his shot release because of the dislocated finger, noticeable especially at the freethrow line. Despite a great game by Longley the Clippers led 27-14 after the 1st quarter. But the Bulls showed pride. They got back into the game with their defense and started a 18-3 scoring run to erase the Clippers’ big lead. At the end of a hard-fought 4th quarter, Barry hit two huge freethrows to tie the game at 92-92 with 10 seconds to go. A lot of time for Jordan to work his magic, but he missed at the buzzer and the game went into the first of two overtimes. The Clippers looked a bit fresher and got a four point lead with 40 seconds to go, but Jordan made two baskets to tie the game again at 102-102 and forced a second overtime. He then completely took over and scored all 9 Bulls points in the 2nd overtime. Overall he scored the last 13 points in the game, unanswered by the Clippers who couldn’t buy a basket and went scoreless on Jordan’s run. While the 34-year-old Jordan looked sharper as the game progressed, the …
The first game in the New Year between Milwaukee (14-15) and chicago (20-10) was one of those “fun games” with lots of crowd-pleasing moments. Michael Jordan and Glenn “Big Dawg” Robinson were on fire for the whole game, both scored 44 points apiece (Jordan 15-22, Robinson 18-30 from the field) and made a lot of great plays. Jordan in particular was phenomenal. He brought his vintage game – fadeaways, alley-oops, reverse layups, coast-to-coast plays – you name it. He had the fans on their feet all game long with his spectacular play, only a month before his 35th birthday. His teammates were also great, especially Longley and Rodman. Luc had almost a triple double (24 pts, 9 rbs, 8 ast) while Rodman stole the show in the last minutes. Not with his rebounding or defense, although he had 21 rebounds in this game. “The Menace” went crazy on 3-pointers. “Taco-Dennis” hit a couple of threes, rolled the score up to 114-100 and in doing so gave the jubilant crowd a round of free tacos.
Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan led a first-half assault as the chicago Bulls put together their best game of the playoffs, trouncing the Indiana Pacers, 106-87, in Game Five to regain control of the Eastern Conference finals. Pippen, who missed two crucial free throws at the end of Game Four, scored 17 of his 20 points in an outstanding all-around first half. He shot 7-of-12 from the field and again smothered Pacers point guard Mark Jackson, who managed five points. “Dealing with Monday night’s loss was very tough for me personally,” said Pippen, who had been shotting less than 40 percent from the field and under 50 percent from the line in the series. “I wanted to go and attack the basket tonight, use all the energy I had, to make up for the mistakes I made on Monday.” Jordan, who missed a three-pointer at the buzzer in Game Four and joined coach Phil Jackson in criticizing the referees afterwards, also scored 17 first-half points. He shot 12-of-20 from the field and finished with 29 points. “We came out tonight with something to prove,” Jordan said. “We decided to be the aggressors. Scottie and I had good energy going toward the basket and we were able to make it happen.” “I did not emphasize that in practice,” Jackson said. “I did not say that you have to go to the basket or that we have to go to the basket. But our players knew what they didn’t do in the previous two games. Scottie and Michael took it upon themselves to prove a point today.” Consecutive three …
Michael Jordan had another outstanding performance as host chicago defeated Atlanta, 97-90, to take over the lead in the Eastern Conference. Jordan scored 47 points and shot 69% (18-for-26 from the field) while the rest of the team, still without Scottie Pippen, combined for 50 points and 32% (19-for-59). The Hawks tried numerous defensive schemes, but Jordan at times made it look so easy that it seemed like he was playing a different game in a distinct space. Atlanta was at his mercy. “The Worm” continued his superb play from the last weeks when he collected 29 rebounds, the most in his two and a half seasons with the Bulls. He also hit a couple of tough shots that got the crowd fired up. Chicago has won seven consecutive games and defeated three division leaders (Atlanta, Miami and the Los Angeles Lakers) in a 10-day span. It was Phil Jackson’s 500th win as the head coach of the Bulls.
*Info taken from Emmanuel Manzanares’ youtube page, who edited this video. Go here for more videos: www.youtube.com * Saturday, March 27th was the first big chicago jam for Aero Chicago Parkour, which is normally called a “Beginners Jam” to bring out folks of all types and ages to come out and learn the basics of Parkour/Freerunning. This jam was important because not only was this the first major Chicago jam without founder Ryan “Cloud” Cousins at the helm, but also the last jam of fellow traceur, Jacob “Rayxna” Carlson, whom will be attending a mission for 2 years in Fresno. We dedicate this video to him, and hope this showcases the fun you can have at our jams! Please visit the forums on the Aero Chicago Parkour website to keep updated on Chicago and IL area jams. Thank you to everyone involved, and especially to Alex “Fresh” Meglei for helping to lead the jam alongside Jake. Enjoy!
