That strip is way more impressive than the shot. If you watch even the condensed version of game 6 you’ll see over and over where Stockton feeds Malone in the post, each time you can see Jordan watching and observing.
Malone gets the ball and looks over his left shoulder every time, Jordan knew this and was waiting to exploit it. You see on the final play when Malone sets a pick for Hornesek Jordan doesn’t even get back and cover, he knows the pass is going to Malone and Malone will immediately look at Rodman. 1000 IQ play by Jordan.
