Rookie-Freeze Out

Year: 1985
Stat Line: 7 PTS, 2 AST, 6 REB

The West won the 1985 All-Star game in Indianapolis, but that's just the side story. Legend has it that Magic and Isiah Thomas orchestrated a plan to freeze rookie Michael Jordan out of the game. The message was received loud and clear and with that a rivalry was born. MJ years later would make sure Isiah wasn't part of the Dream Team, and this personal rivalry was on constant display during those epic Bulls vs. Piston matchups. There isn't many Jordan highlights from this game due to the freeze-out, but MJ's baseline slam is one of the best in the game.
