You do better work than any sports documentarian alive, including anyone at ESPN.
Fax Bruh (I’ve co-started a trend yay)
nah fr bro
All great men have at least one moment when they reach beyond time and space to create their masterwork. That entire game was Rex's moment. It was his game. His paint, the court his canvas. The subject: domination. His flow was unstoppable.
I've felt that flow before and it's 100% intoxicating.
Yep every NBA player will have that one game where they played way way over their standard and this was Chapmans game
@Kirk Ford ngl just had it a week ago, tried to control it again day by day everytime I play, but I can’t get it back anymore lol
@Mixed pleasure it’s not a coincidence that a lot of those players played and UK, Tony Delk. He had similar career.
Scary how in a one & done game rex Chapman dangerous ..in game 7 he dangerous
Rex was essentially the white jr smith, he’d either score 7 points or randomly hit like 50 threes
Naw not really. He was pretty disciplined, and actually played defense. Jimmy just hyping the video. The reason he left Miami was simply because there wasn't enough money to pay him what he wanted. The following season Miami would sign Dan Majerle, Juwan Howard (who was a legit star at the time), and PJ Brown. Juwan was initially signed to a 100m contract. Then the NBA pulled a Chris Paul on us, and axed the trade on some salary cap technicalities. Yeah this was the CP3 thing before the CP3 thing.
Anyway, Rex had earned his bag, and Miami just couldn't afford to pay him more. So he walked in FA. It worked out though, because Miami drafted a scrappy guard by the name of Voshon Leonard who would blossom into a 2 way player and become very serviceable for us. Pat would also bring in Jamal Mashburn which was nice, but didn't stop us from wondering what if???
Imagine a trio of Howard, Hardaway, and Mourning. 😰🤷♂️
FACTS LOL 😂 REX WAS A SPECIAL PIECE 🙌🏾
Yes, but Without the bonehead moments. Rex always showed great bball judgment
Daniel G Nobody think like that except for kids. Lol
Daniel G Yeah you right, I have a good memory too.
I am ashamed to say that as a child of the 90s, I had never heard of this guy. That being said, Rex Chapman went where few men had ever gone before - he humbled MJ, scoring on him multiple times and rendered his perimeter defense ineffective. He made him look mortal! That feat alone commands respect!
The more I think of it, it was because Jordan was a friend of his. When someone gives you a knife (in the back), you are not terrified, but rather dissapointed. When you have emotions with someone, and reliance on someone, it's comes off as a shock. Jordan does not look scared. This was just one night. He also looks tired. Who has it more tough? The guy who is setting records and maintaining the reputation of the most formidable, the best ever, to do it, night after night, for years, defeating foe after foe, and confirming his place, or the guy who turns his back on his friend and happens to catch the king when he is vulnerable. I see many comments saying : "Mad respect for outplaying the GOAT!". It's like one of those neighborhood stories, when some great players come to a hood court and somehow, some underdog local team wins a match against them! I did a few of those back in the day. You instantly become neighborhood superheroes. But only in our own neighborhood and in our own minds. What Jordan did, however, is testified by history.
@Simke_fn I'm inclined to agree with you sir. Very sound insight!
@Juan Rivera I didn't mean to sound too one-dimensional, about this game you still can't say : irrelevant, and shrug it off. If You've ever been an underdog, you have to cheer for Rex, at least at this, and for this one game. You've been waiting for the king to slip off. That one guy, or opportunity, or night, where someone who is almost undestructible seems vulnerable, off, or whatever, and an underdog comes on top, still shows you that it is not the size of the dog, but the fight in him. It could be inspiring for all underdogs everywhere, and celebrated. You can't NOT cheer on it, at least partly :)
Many other underdogs made it to the NBA and made a name themselves after A LOT of hard work, and enduring, and adapting. Talent can mean something, and Jordan sure had a lot of it, but the fact WAS, and still is, he worked more than anyone else. Like Kobe, like so many others. Relentless with their work ethic. I see more and more workers surviving all the age groups and getting to the nba. There will be no more cult personalities in the nba. I think Lebron is really the last one. No more one-man team idol perceptions. It seems like organizations are becoming more increasingly important than stars in this age, good relationships, And players who are more stable mentally and take care of their bodies, are more likely to succeed. These are different times.
@Simke_fn well said, exactly what I was thinking
And people say players these days can’t score on mj 🤦♂️
"Mike absolutely walked him like a dog repeatedly for the next three seasons, including a three-game playoff sweep. . . ."
I guess MJ did take it personal
MJ be like “I’m gonna ruin this man’s whole career” 😂
“But let’s not mention that part” 🙄😂
he should have cause mj was getting trashed
It's called "One hit wonder"
Yep, I was at that game! He was unstoppable , hit every 3 point shot non stop.. I was lucky enough to run into Steffi Graph and Andre Agassi and got their autographs.. Memories
And the queen of shiba. Don't forget!!!!
Where's the autographs now?
Every dog has a day and I mean just 1 day
i almost didnt belive it because i was there but when u said agassi i know youre telling the truth because he was there and he was the mannnn at that moment in time!! thats crazy!! we share a moment as strangers..
I'm a simple man. I see a Jimmy video, I click.
How do u know
I follow Josh Otusanya
*Mwah Hah Hah*
I guess we're all simple men then
Bro I literally just watched one of your shorts lmao
Mwah hah ha
we all do that.
Bro, I remember being like 10, watching the Lakers vs Suns, and Rex lit up the Lakers like Steph would to teams today. Young Shaq and KoBe had nooo answers for him. Dude was dropping insane 3 bombs after bombs. I legit fell in love with the game. I thought only MJ was capable of pulling off some magic like that.
and people are delusional thinking players would stop steph today LOL it's a joke
Great streak shooting player and in game dunker . Such a pity he fell into the prescription drug addiction and lost 50m in the process . I wish him all the best to getting back on track .
He is doing well, a great follow on Twitter.
@Michael Turner the drug addiction explains his Twitter persona
Imaginé being that guy bowing, and then you see this video all these years later and you’re just like “FUCK YEAH SOMEONE NOTICED!” Lol that would be dope
Shannon Sharpe pulled this out of no where on Undisputed today. What a memory .
It's been making its rounds on social media for like 3 or 4 days...
I love the smirk on Chapman's face when he said he got lucky
I think Jimmy has told the whole life story of MJ by now lol
That what I’m saying
Probably, maybe, perhaps even
Jxmy probably has more tbh 😆
Jimmy>the last dance
“Only a man without a conscience takes that shot”. - Love it.
Jxmy makes me go through so many emotions! I love it.
Rex was a very good player and definitely got a one-up on Mike that night for sure.
As a Heat fan from the start, I remember watching this game. 😀 Rex was always a wild card on that team, and it made for some interesting basketball.
Man, my only touch points to basketball are your videos. You're such an amazing story teller. Awesome. Keep it up
I've never seen an NBA game in its entirety. But this kinda thing is why I love basketball on Clip-Share. A game full of little stories that live on for decades.
Rex Chapman: *sees Jordan trying to guard him*
Rex Chapman: And I took that personally
Jordan got his own medicine on him!
My my my how the turntables
10:46 All this time he spends watching basketball and he actually thinks he said that LMAO
Michael Jordan would not have nodded nicely and backed off at the same time. They were just talking...
@First name Last name y'all fanboys get on your hands and knees for mj, kobe and lbj lol
I had the pleasure of seeing Rex Chapman as a Suns in the late 90s. I tell you it was fun small ball 3-point team with Kevin Johnson, Jason Kidd, Dennis Scott, Welsey Person, and Steve Nash.
Suns were lowkey TOUGH on NBA Jam. People slept on em!!
NBA jam that was the tv show 👍
Yeah, I remember this game. Rex Chapman placed like a maniac. Some of those 10 loses the Bulls got during 72-10 was when a player on the other team played lights out.
The Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf game was also during that season.
So cool. Takes literally the best game of their career to beat MJ
When people (Athletes especially) manage for a few times in their life get into the zone or flow state, something special often occurs. Awesome breakdown.
I remember this one game. T-Rex Chapman just won't stop shooting those threes against the 96 Bulls. He was like shooting forever. And MJ couldn't just care less, the camera was on focus to his reaction.
Great vid!!! Rex is a name i dont hear often in the same sentence as NBA. But you sure did a great job putting him in a well deserved spotlight. You are meant for this stuff man. Keep it up.
“Absolutely walked him like a dog” got me idk why 😂
i read this exactly as he said it on sum weird shit lmfao
And funny thing is "every dog has his day"
lmfaoo Bro that shi so funny
Don't have much time to watch NBA any more, but awesome to see these nostalgic vids. Cheers Jimmy!
After the bump out of bounds, Rex said, "Hey Mike, you might be the greatest of all time, but you're NOT the greatest tonight." Always loved Rex's style.
As a kid collecting NBA cards, I collected some…unorthodox players; Moses Malone, Joe Dumars….and Rex Chapman. I was always intrigued by his style of play but by the time he played this game I was firmly in the Shaq camp. It brought me joy just now watching this breakdown of this unshakable players moment of greatness. Well done that man
Absolutely great video (as always). I always picture Rex wearing a Charlotte jersey. Forgot how dynamic a player he was, thanks for the reminder!
Shout outs to Jimmy for putting us (who aren't the most informed) on all these legends we had no idea existed. What I wonder though is if a player is able to perform like that for even just a single night... Doesn't that mean they have the potential to play that way (more or less) every single time? I mean... I guess when they DO learn to harness their true ability, you just end up with an MJ. It all makes sense.
Mj could turn it on when needed, most guys just try to get there at all...
Gosh these old MJ videos are so interesting
Pause bro. .
Why am I able to translate to Dutch ?
These MJ vids aren't getting old though I still love watching them
@zeeee bro cmon that wasn’t even sus u made it sus
At first it looked like Rex was trash talking MJ. Then it looked like it ended in an understanding, like Rex didn't mean to foul MJ that aggressively (because unintentional hard fouls happen). If you watch carefully, you can even see that Rex was pushed into MJ. Towards the end of Rex and MJ's conversation, you can see Alonzo Mourning patting MJ's butt, while MJ appears to be nodding in understanding towards Chapman. They may seem like they're yelling because they're breathing heavy since they're physically exerting themselves, all while having to talk loud enough over the fans so that they can hear each other.
The shot that defined the game was the layup he went past the basket and made a no look shot that went in. Every time Jordan played RC he really took care of business. Winning one game in a career, almost charity really.
I’m here because Skip said nobody has ever done this to Jordan😂
Much respect to Rex Chapmen for keeping it classy and humorous at the same time
It’s not called bullied, it’s more like giving respect and avoiding having an issue with a friend. Mike’s very competitive and Rex did his thing that night. Over all the career stats don’t lie in regards to who got the best of who.
the first shot 😳 he did a Curry before Curry ever did it what in the world
Did you know curry did a dream shake against Denver?
Wrong, Curry did it in 1995.. he was 7.
Gilbert arenas did it before curry as well 🤷🏽♂️
And to top it off Rex Chapman and steph have a close relationship too
jimmy giving a quick summary of Rex's games with Jordan after this 39 piece has me dead!!
The fact that this video was even made speaks more to MJ’s dominance than it does anything else
Rex seems like such a chill nice guy. Would love to get a beer with him and hear him regale stories of his playing days. Seems really approchable.
For a three-year period between 1994 and 1997, the league reduced its 3-point line distance from 23-feet and nine inches to 22-feet . and this game was in 1996. Michael Jordan didnt need help scoring, the other shooting guards did.
@Albert Ross Almost 2 feet shorter. 21 inches shorter.
Rex was shooting his 2 feet behind the line every shot anyway
Watched this Live as a Bulls fan I always liked Chapman he was a baller for sure! Damn I thank god for the opportunity to watch Jordan play since a Rookie! Lebron whoooooo!!!!!!! MJ23 🐐
I remember watching Rex play in the 90’s. He was one of those players that you’d never know what kind of night he was going to have. He could have one of those 8 point nights or explode for 40 out of nowhere. A rare ticking time bomb on offense.
Rex was a straight baller and can’t describe him any better than you did. He went off semi often..just enough to keep you honest.
Kuzma but better?
Sound like khris middleton
sounds like inconsistency
@detective niggachu he wasn’t a top level player. But when he feeling it, look out type of player
Crazy when you think that this an entire video dedicated to how this guy played one good game against the greatest of all time
Uh he never played lebron
What a lame comment about lebron. Don't take away from how well Rex played especially in this game here. What an outing. You casuals and kids JUST DONT KNOW
@Albert Ross what
If jordan litterly one of the best defenders of all time crashed you think winny ass lebron faz jal
@Yadiel Perez lebron is a better defender than jordan
I remember watching that game live....it was a Fri night. BTW, Rex received the espy for that long, falling out of bounds 3 for the tie at the buzzer in the playoffs.
"Absolutely walked him like a dog" had me dead 💀
This was a fun video. Very nicely put together, quite interesting, and well narrated. Nicely done.
First dunk comp I watched was when Rex did the behind the back catch and reverse. I had that nailed on my 8’ ring. I still remember all the dunks from that comp.
We need to start appreciating Jimmy’s statistical and graphical knowledge
what knowledge💀💀 lol
You think you just knows off the top of his head ? 💀 props for the work he puts in the find the stats but come on dude
Idk what the first two bozos are talking about but I agree. I’m taking my capstone data analysis / visualization course and being able to express statistical insights in a clear and concise fashion is a difficult skill to hone
Yeah it takes a true brain surgeon to look at statistics. You know there's a site that has every stat recorded for every game played ever?
5:41 he's turning around before the shot falls.
He wasn't pushing Mike out of bounds he was pushed by mourning into Jordan.
Great video, what a player.
Thx I was looking for this comment!
Rex was a special player. The fact that he was that good of a 3-point shooter and could fly too. I think he won a Dunk contest as well.
i still can remember rex hitting that one legged three point shot for the suns. i would love to see that whole game again. he went off that game. i dont remember details but i do remember him going off
They should show this to rookies and young players who get in a shooting slump to show just how much a mentality can affect a player/game. Like how you can see a player in warm ups just absolutely drain every shot outside the arc and then once the whistle blows they can't get one to drop..it's all in your head dude!
For those who don't know: .333 from 3 is the respected percentage for a swingman. Kobe, MJ, McGrady, etc all shot around that percentage. And in an era where you didn't just get open shots all day cause of zone and lazy defense, that .333 is nothing to sneeze at.
You go watch the era where "you didn't just get open shots all day" again brotha. The three point line was free all the damn time in compared to today 🤣 Even with the "top 5 shooter" larry bird was getting sagged of that time 😂😂😂
I love the way you give a story behind an event in the NBA whether it is a performance, argument or a moment in time where us younger hoopers wouldn't even know of.
It's well researched, well edited, and always entertaining
Rex had a great game. As he said in the interview herein, he did not talk more trash than to tell him, "I can't let you dunk", so Michael didn't back down, he doesn't even look pissed at all. Hyped my man.
Great video. I remember his time on the Phoenix Suns when he was well out of his prime but still effective
Damn, he really humbled the shit out of MJ on this night, Mike couldn’t even say nothing back at 7:57
MJ wasn’t humbled and hasn’t been humbled. MJ averaged 30+ points against Rex. Thats almost Rexs career high. AND THATS ONLY AGAINST REX
Rex Chapman was a hell of a Basketball player. And this one of those games he was on Fire/ In his Bag.. I remember it like it was yesterday. He had a 39 point Game in the 1993/ 1994 season when he was playing for the Washington bullets food for thought
Look at 5:40 and all I see where steph got it from wow what a shot in that era and confidence
Mad respect for Chapman having the best game of his life when it mattered... Not many can say that for a brief moment of time they've outplayed the goat in his prime.
Not hating but really Clip-Share? Not gna waste my time about a player who had a good game 1 time against the goat.. the goat brings it every game , top of he’s game n opponent that’s the real conversation.. the preparation and mentality for that is insane.. 1 game!!!! 🤦🏻♂️
Chris Jackson gave it to 23 too... but where is Jimmy's video on that? Mahmoud Abdul bro the Rauf ... In the dunk contest too .. this Rex thing is a surprise though... More than once 23 had no ANSWER for skilled quick guards.
Follow Jesus either way
@King6d9 Torched?!!! One game does not put things into perspective, that’s like me beating an NBA player one night and they beat me in every other game before and after. Come on now pipe it down!
when it mattered? you think the playoff series against jordan would've mattered more than a regular season game.
Not even watching that much basketball, but man your videos are even interesting and entertaining to people outside the game. great stuff...
For people that don't know Rex....please get caught up on your basketball history! I always loved watching Rex ball when he was in his groove!!
I’m here because Shannon Sharpe said Rex Chapmen talked trashed to MJ lol
Great story 😊 keep them coming us Chicago and Jordan fans love it
1) your research skill is awesome. I only managed to hear about that Chapman interview about 6 months sans wonder the footage was like. You actually went to get the footage with great analysis of the story! Great job and no wonder your subscriptions are getting higher!
2) did you notice how chapman got pushed into Jordan by his teammate? Was they PJ Brown? Anyway, I think he just reluctantly got into it with Mike but he didn’t back down! Ups to him!
3) Have always loved Chapman since his Suns days with JKidd. Mad hops and wild shots! Truly unique player!
Thanks for another superb video!
Can you imagine what Twitter would have looked like after this game 😂
It would have broken it
"Michael Jordan is Overrated" is what woulda been trending if Twitter was invented back then 😂🤣
@Narrow Imagine Skip and Shannon at that time, Shannon would go: SKIUUUP!!, YOUR SO CALLED "GOAT" GOT BULLIED BY A ROLE PLAYER!
@Sheyar James i can only imagine the excuses skip would come up with 🤣
I remember watching King Rex in high school. The only high school kid that ever amazed my father.
That was a great game, watched it live. Was pissed when Rex didn't resign with the Heat.
Every now and then MJ wanted to know what it felt like to be on the other team.
My hometown guy! I've been a fan since a kid. I remember being little, and not understanding why he was leaving Kentucky to play in the pros
Shannon got skip on this one😂😂
since jimmy forgot to say it
i gotcha y’all
jimmy: hope you all enjoyed and as always until next time.
Thanks I was waiting for it
@StyleTechnical the same here
Yoo!!🤣🤣I waited for that!
I can literally hear this comment
In 1998 I went to Gary Paytons all star charity game in Seattle.... great game, good fun... at half time they put a blind fold on Rex put him at half court and spun him 10 times. A lucky fan was to give him 3 instructions to get Rex close then score... the fan said" your Rex just shoot the ball"... nothing but net... the crowd and players all lost their mind...
I remember this game as a kid. I was a Heat and this was fun to watch.
Rex Chapman was nice asf! Dude had sooo much pressure in Kentucky and was always clutch. Let alone all the bodies he caught. Rex had game and hops frfr!
Jordan had quite a few games like this especially after the first 3peat. The 90s was not just about jordan. Alot of great players gave mj & bulls tough nights. Mj just never gave up.or forget. Chapman had a career game.
He legitimately outplayed Michael Jordan for one game. And then looked danger right in the eyes and told him, “you can’t guard me” in front of the whole arena and actually scored a career high while hitting 9 threes… WHAT A STORY FOR THE GRANDCHILDREN, THAT GOTTA BE WORTH A RING!!!
And u forgot to mention that he lost every game to MJ after that..
Bro imagine having the luxury of telling Micheal Jordan switch off and his coach actually making him do it 😭
INSANE video about a guy Ive literally never heard about in the entirety of my life. Keep up the great work, greetings from germany
Props to Rex but this story even proves Jordan's greatness. Sure if you search through the archives, you'll find many times when Jordan and the bulls got their butts absolutely torched. But who could do this on a night in and night out basis? Nobody. The bulls in the 90's were about as perfect as you could get.
He got pushed towards MJ, really hard and that’s what he was telling him. I was there listening to them.
There's another game when Rex was in Phoenix. Jordan was killin' and trash talking crazy to Rex the whole game. Rex wasn't saying anything to him. At one point in the second half Jordan must've said the magic word. Rex was furious and stormed at Mike. He then started lightin' Mike up again. I've been looking for that game for years. It's somewhere between the 97-98 seasons.
Shout to Rex. A Kentucky basketball legend and one of the real ones. The first University of Kentucky basketball player I can remember watching when I was 4 or 5. Him and Skywalker.
I'm not gonna lie, that Lil nugget about the 50 min mixtape legitimizes everything Jimmy saying, no 🧢
Why would Jimmy lie to us?
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated? I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else. Gets me frustrated. Just admit that you love the videos I make, my dear fra
@Kosher. Wise Words
@AxxL unwise words
@GoldLion90 I haven't heard of anything truer than that. Except for when Jimmy is talking about Rex Chapman of course.
that man Jxmyhighroller doesn't miss, all videos are absoutely fire, every single time
Good stuff! I miss that era of basketball
This is like the equivalent of hitting the Powerball. Will only happen once in your life and better call yourself very very lucky
As a life time Kentucky fan I appreciate you making this mini docu
I always knew what Rex was CAPABLE of doing on the court....ESPECIALLY when he got in the ZONE...I was & still am a HUGE Wildcat fan....but I'm also from Chicago, & those were my BULLS, my favorite team, my hometown team, & Mike was MY guy...so when Rex had THAT game vs MY bulls it made me ill...lol, but it was ONLY loss #6 & I knew they were going to get over it & win another RING...but when I thought Rex had TALKED shit to Mike, I was PISSED, mad that a player from my Kentucky Wilcats would show such DISRESPECT to MJ...I'm glad that I saw this clip & it was all explained by Rex...SUCKS that because of everyone jumping to conclusions (me included), I NEVER fully got to APPRECIATE the great player Rex was....
I love that Jimmy is getting his money with the ad breaks. Man deserves the money. Puts in the work and educates his audience. Congrats my man ✊🏽✊🏽
Yep, In fact, I actually watch these ads rather than swiping past em. Lol
Jimmy has a way with words, and highlighting!
I got premium but I’m glad fr this mans puts in work and is a great story teller
fr man, one of the few people where i’m like “yeah, i’ll watch this whole ad”
Looks like Mike was trying to get Rex to calm down and probably cool off, look like he was saying “Alright now, alright man” 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
MJ looked like a literal clown the entire game this is so funny what a legend
I’m not even a casual fan but the algorithm recommended these videos and man these are really really well made, excellent research, production and storytelling
I will never forget that shot by Rex in Phoenix. Rex was a Unique player
These old school videos more interesting than any modern day NBA game.
One key aspect you missed in the video is that Miami only had 8 guys dressed for that game, We (yes i said we) made a trade for Hardaway and were short handed. Local reports were the bulls were already plannin a victory celebration for after the game on the beach. Supposedly this got back to the heat and the rest is history! Rex went ape, im glad i got to witness it for myself!
Thats wild asf imagine living that
Yes sir. This way, that a way, Hardaway! R.I.P. Dr. Jack.
Oh and the next season we would go on to be on of the best teams in the league. First 60 win season!
Pretty fucking awesome if you ask me
What up Ronnie Seikaly?
What do you think about the name Bimbo Coles.
He'd fit in perfectly in today's game lol
Rex Chapman wasn't an average player. I remember him playing along Jason Kidd and Kevin Johnson for the Suns. They were a small fast team, and they were fun to watch.
Every pack of cards I opened as a kid had a daw-gon Rex Chapman card in it 🤣🤣🤣🤣😤-(Kanye Face)
You got me ready to bust out my card collection and reminisce.
