The Shrug.

The Shot.

Here is Scottie Pippen’s dunk over Patrick Ewing. Note how Pippen walks over to Spike Lee – a vocal Knicks fan – and tells him to “sit down, bitch.”

Yeah, yeah, we’re giving out free advertisement to Jordan and Nike. Well, when your ads are this good, we’ll post them too. Here is Alex’s favourite from the ‘Become Legendary’ campaign.

Here is the Gatorade commercial, where an aging Michael Jordan plays against a younger version of himself.

LeBron James kind of demolished his public image this past summer. This is Nike’s response to that.
