Classic shoot out, a vintage duel between Michael Jordan and Chris Jackson a.k.a Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. How good Abdul-Rauf was ? Answer in this highlights. He was Stephen Curry before Stephen Curry. http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/199602040DEN.html Those are Phil Jackson's comments about Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf: "Never seen anything like SCurry? Remind you of Chris Jackson/ Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, who had a short but brilliant run in NBA?" How does commenting on Rauf mean I'm comparing him to Curry? Remind, yes, quick release, cross over, Yep, MVP, nope. Get a grip!
This could be the most impressive game by an NCAA player I've ever seen. Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (or Chris Jackson) was a freshman participating in only his fifth college basketball game ever. Yet he drowns threes in the first seconds of the shot clock and fools seniors with his pump fakes and shake and bake moves like he had been doing this for years. What I loved most about the game is that he had no conscience whatever. LSU dominated the first half, only for Florida to come back and almost tie the game. Yet Jackson wouldn't let that happen by scoring 21 points in the span of about 6 or 7 minutes to ensure LSU's win. Amazing. NCAA 1988-89.
Chris Jackson and his Tigers uspet Georgetown at home.
