There’s also the question of game importance. Considering Jordan’s many masterful postseason performances, should a regular season game count? Most importantly, what would Jordan think if he just so happened to stumble upon this article? Would he agree or disagree? What about his teammates? What would they think? Or better yet, what would Steve Kerr think? These are all factors to consider when narrowing M.J’s best games down to just twelve (yes ten). So, guess we better not waste anymore time and get straight to our selections.
