#TBT: MJ’s classic NBA Finals shrug vs Blazers 6/3/92


Michael Jordan’s infamous shrug after nailing his sixth three-pointer in Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers is our pick for this Throwback Thursday. Shooting the trifecta was never one of his strengths. But, on this night it was and the Blazers were not prepared.
