Michael Jordan Goes Super Saiyan After Hitting ‘The Shot’ (Video)

I know that headline might not make a lot of sense to people who are older than about 30, so allow me to elaborate. Super Saiyan is a transformation in Dragonball Z that makes a character super-powerful. A reddit user by the name of noise_filter put the graphic on Michael Jordan after he hit “The Shot” over Craig Ehlo to steal Game 5 in the first round of the 1989 playoffs from Cleveland.

(I promise the GIF is more fun than the explanation.)

Do you see the difference? It’s subtle, but it’s there.
