Arrow NBA throwback: March 31 1991 Lewis had MJ seeing Ghosts

In that March 31 game, as Jordan pulled up for his patented fallaway -- one of the most feared weapons in basketball -- Lewis waited patiently for MJ to launch himself, then stretched his arms and timed it so he deflected the ball just as Jordan released.

The block surprised Jordan, whose otherworldly elevation usually negated any chance of a rejected shot.

Most players weren't athletic enough to literally "hang" with Jordan. Lewis was one of the exceptions.

"He was a tough matchup," Jordan said. "He had those long arms that really bothered me.

"I was trying to be aggressive with him. I was trying to take advantage of his passive demeanor, but he didn't back down. He never relinquished his own aggressiveness.

"He shocked me a little bit."

MJ dismissed Reggie's initial block as an anomaly. When it happened again, this time on a pull-up jumper, Jordan became irked.
The next time, he became concerned. And by the fourth time, on a lefty drive to the hoop, Jordan was irritated -- and somewhat spooked.

Didn't take long for a Jordaneer to come running to his defense

How is claiming in jest that MJ had Lewis killed because he blocked his shot 4 times in a game defending Jordan?

link?

FYI during the 90/91 and 91/92 seasons MJ averaged 33 ppg in 8 games vs Boston, shooting over 51% from the field.

Did you put this in the OTC to hide from 3ball?

Yup, MJ usually had his way vs Reggie Lewis, except in that game where Lewis blocked MJ's shot 4 times

It's called smoke screening.
Of course followed up by your insecureness.

So Jordan himself admits Reggie was challenging and of course y'all find a way to belittle him. Lol, nobody including OP is saying Lewis is better than Jordan. Y'all way too insecure.
