Basketball legend Magic Johnson recently shared a story about Michael Jordan's competitiveness during the 1992 NBA Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers. The night before game one, Magic was playing cards with Jordan and beating him badly. Despite Magic suggesting they stop so Jordan could rest for the game, Jordan insisted on continuing to play. This apparently put Jordan in a sour mood, but he took out his frustration on the court the next day, making six three-pointers in the first half, including the famous shrug towards Magic after the sixth. Magic believes Jordan's hot shooting may have been a result of his anger towards him for losing at cards the night before.
