    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.

      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. 😰🤷‍♂️

    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!

    • Simke_fn
      Simke_fn Year ago +31

      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.

    • Juan Rivera

      @Simke_fn I'm inclined to agree with you sir. Very sound insight!

    • Simke_fn
      Simke_fn Year ago +3

      @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.

    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

    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.

    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.

  • Jim Camp

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • meg

    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.

      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.

    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!

    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...

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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....

    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!
