Every sports mega-star enjoys a career-defining moment and for hoops legend Michael Jordan, it came in Game 5 of the 1989 Eastern Conference Playoffs against Cleveland Cavaliers.

After sweeping aside Jordan's Chicago Bulls in regular season games 6-0, the two teams met in the Playoffs, where it was a foregone conclusion to many that the Cavs would march on. 

Instead, a buzzer-beater from Jordan gave the Bulls a 101-100 lead in the final game of the series – it was a major upset and sparked the start of a Jordan-led Bulls dynasty.

The lasting image of this titanic moment is the emphatic celebration of Jordan leaping into the air while Cavs players crumple to the ground in despair.

To celebrate Jordan's greatest moment, Complex worked with a handful of talented illustrators to recreate the magic of 'The Shot'.
