Michael Jordan in the post. Amazing compilation.
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfSftZvpHJg

Great job by the uploader. Pretty much covered all aspects of his post-up game.

- Phenomenal footwork, so graceful and fluid. Poetry in motion.
- Unreal how much space he creates and how much lift he gets on the jumper
- Little wasted motion and another often overlooked aspect is how great of a job he does protecting the ball so defenders can't poke it away
- Reading the defense and timely decision making. If the double is coming, he can fade on the baseline to negate it. There's also quite a few plays where he sees the double team coming and spins baseline quickly to evade the double team and of course, a few plays where he'll split the double
- How he gets the feel of the defender, creating space off the contact and how he often works to get better position when played in single coverage
- Quick upper body movements (arms, shoulders) allowing for deadly shot fakes and body fakes
- A few crisp passes out of the post showcasing his ability to recognize the double team, pass in traffic often adjusting in mid air

13:57 is a rare play, not sure if I've seen it before. Looks like a game from Shaq's rookie year.

:oldlol: 15:02 They have illegal defense, that should be illegal offense - Doug Collins. That shit was nasty, the ball fake and then the step through making it look effortless.

17:18. That shake on Willie Anderson is one of my favorite Jordan plays. I think its from game 3 vs New York in the 1996 playoffs.

Its like a VIDEO GAME mode.

Its amazing his Upper body in tandem with lower body footwork.

He never ever looks awkward or forcing the issue.

Easily the best PERIMETER post player ever!

Nobody is even close.

NONE!

Do you consider SF's perimeter players though?

Looking back at this now and watching some of today's players, what impresses me the most is his recognition and court awareness.

Seriously, as nice as some of those moves are, they can be duplicated by many players in the history of the game. But where he separates himself is in the court awareness, recognition, reaction and execution. It annoys me when players get trapped so easily, I sit there thinking "didn't they see the defender?" "why didn't they react on time?"

You see MJ avoiding the double 'before' they get a chance to get close to him in many of the clips below, and I'm sure there's hundreds of others like that.

He was truly on another level. I'm so happy to have been able to follow his whole career. I think Kobe does similar things and certainly Lebron could too if the latest rules didn't make it unnecessary to develop his game in the same way. But, as mentioned above, the awareness and BBIQ of Jordan was just off the charts. God playing BBall.:bowdown:

The separation and body control is amazing. :bowdown:

GOAT perimeter post player.

Decision making is also off the charts. The split second moves he makes, right before the double comes is woah.

LMAO at Shaq trying to double on MJ. Dude got left in the dust.

That level of post dominance is only matched by Hakeem, McHale, and Shaq. The thing that separates MJ from them is, the way he can pass out of doubles.

U forget how EASY Jordan made that Fadeaway look. :bowdown: Not many guys can hit those shots consistently.

Spin move into pump fake, banker off glass is by far my favorite move of his.

Or the spin move as the double comes, and dunk.

Man thats why Lebron will never be better, Jordans skills are above and beyond.
