This iconic photo of Michael Jordan during the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest shaped the way I looked at Basketball for many years. The dunk was enough for MJ to overcome Dominque Wilkins and win the dunk contest in front of the hometown crowd. At at time when adversity was overcome seldom, this photo signifies the magnitude MJ went through to overcome and prevail.
This photo is one of those when I see it I immediately remember where I was when I heard about the chase. I was outside playing baseball with friends and we all went into the closest house with cable to view the chase.
