"I got no chance of losing. None at all," Jordan told reporters conducting the 2K Sports interview. which features LeBron James on the game's cover.
As for his favorite slam, Jordan begins the play by spinning away from Charles Oakley along the baseline, then soaring high over a rim protecting Ewing for a emphatic score. Ewing is now a coach for the Charlotte Bobcats team Jordan owns.
When asked if he still visualizes or thinks about the play, Jordan answered "very, very often. He later added of Ewing, "I told him, Georgetown guys don't block shots, they take charges. I dunked it on him so hard it was unbelievable. Every time I see him, that's the first thing I remind him of."
Jordan also mentioned his 1997 dunk on Dikembe Mutombo that ended with MJ waving his finger at the Atlanta Hawks center in his trademark fashion following a blocked shot as another of his favorites.
Jordan labeled his 1995-96 season, when he averaged 30.4 points and led the Bulls to a record-setting 72-10 season, as his best. The year culminated with Jordan and the Bulls winning their fourth of six championships.
