Adam & Aaron celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Jordan's (1984) arrival in the National Basketball Association. This episode covers:

- NBA regular season - October 26 through November 9, 1984

- Chicago and Milwaukee's home-and-home series (Oct 27 & 29)

- Insightful early-season minutiae, all but lost to the annals of basketball history

In this episode, we discuss numerous happenings from the first 15 days of the 1984-85 NBA season. We talk about the debut of future Hall of Fame players - Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon & John Stockton, then detail the Bulls' (late October) home-and-home series with the Bucks.

We chat about Stockton's unwitting role in a Seattle radio station contest; his last-ditch shot had one-million dollars riding on it. In more random news of the era, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's BMW succumbs to foul play (no pun intended). We also talk about the NBA's best-performing players, milestones reached, the infamous Julius Erving & Larry Bird fight and much more.

This episode continues our coverage of the 1984-85 NBA season. We encourage your interaction. Feel free to suggest specific games, moments and events from within the season, for us to cover in future episodes of the series. Thanks for taking the time to listen to the show.
