    The new Ultimate Jordan 20th Anniversary DVD being released this Tuesday features 5 complete games that are referred to as "Jordan's best games". Does anyone know which ones are on the disc? I'm just trying to find out what's included on the DVD so please don't turn this thread into a debate about Jordan as a player. Thanks.

    This looks like a incredible pickup!!!!
    I wish the major sports leagues would pick up on the complete game idea!!!

    There are a LOT of NFL games I'd love to see in their completeness!!!

    And two of those are on the Chicago Bulls set, released earlier this year (1997 Finals: Game 5 and 1998 Finals: Game 6).

    Dammit.

    It's a little unclear, but it looks like the Best Buy versions will include a bonus DVD of the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest. Pretty cool. They're selling it for $23.99.

    Amazon's got it for $20.99, but they don't list anything about the bonus dunk contest disc.

    I'm a sucker for all things Jordan, so I guess I'll be hitting up Best Buy this week. . .

    Are there any other sports themed releases that have complete games?

    There are the 2 NBA Dynasty Series sets...the L.A. Lakers, and the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls set has 6 complete games, one from each of their NBA Finals appearances...and the Lakers DVD set has either 8 or 9 games on it.

    The closest thing you'll probably get to a complete game from the NFL outside of the release of each of the past few Superbowls, is what you find on releases like the complete history of the Oakland Raiders DVD, or Green Bay Packers...they've got sets for the Giants, Cowboys, Eagles, Raiders, and Packers that I know of...and since I have the Raider set, I can tell you that a majority of the disc is taken up with a 1977 game against the Baltimore Colts...only its not really complete as it is intercut with interviews that were taped later, and shows the beginning of the game, and a lot of the key drives...and big moments...but it runs for a good while. I think the ICeBowl is the game on the Packers DVD.

    Matt,

    I'm also a little ticked off that two of the games on the Ultimate Jordan DVD were already included on the Bulls Dynasty release. Instead of the '97 and '98 Finals games, I think they should have included the "double nickel" game(55 pts. against the Knicks in March of 1995) and "The Shot"(1989 playoffs game 5 vs. the Cavs). These are 2 classic games that easily could have replaced the duplicate games(assuming people buy both sets).

    I'd love to see baseball get this treatment. Though maybe focus on one team rather than players. (Sadly, it'd probably be the Yankees that'd get the treatment though.)

    Yeah, it's lazy.

    The three "new" games, they're great. (I'm especially glad to see the '93 Phoenix game on there--before the game, I called it that he was gonna score 55 points, and sure enough, that's exactly what he got.) [​IMG]

    I'm just trying to think of a good reason why we're getting the two "old" games again.

    I wonder if this will cost them any sales from people that already have the Bulls set.

    I'm surprised that Game 1 from the 1992 Finals against Portland isn't on there. That first half where he went for 35 points and 7 three pointers will always be remembered as one of his greatest games. Don't get me wrong, I will pick this up anyway, I will own anything with MJ or the Bulls dynasty years on dvd.

    . . .Then you should already know that Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals is on the Chicago Bulls set, released earlier this year.

    I agree with your picks here, both of these would be good. I'm more of a Lakers fan than a Bulls/Jordan fan, but I do own the Bulls collection, and will consider picking this up, but I wish they had picked 2 different games.

    I still haven't decided whether to pick this up or not. Since I have the original 2-disc set and two of the games from this new release are on the Bulls Dynasty set, I'd basically be double-dipping for the 69 pt. game vs. Cleveland, the 63 pt. game vs. Boston and the 55 pt. game vs. Phoenix. I'm just not sure it's worth it. [​IMG]

    I agree considering i have the 2-disc set also.

I know i have the whole pheonix series the double nickel game portland 49 points against philly that was good i can't believe phil pulled him before he hit that 50th point.....okay enough reminising i need to go through these tapes[​IMG]

    Jeff,

    I have you beat......just by a little. [​IMG] I have about 150 Jordan games on VHS(around 125 Bulls games and 25 or so Wizards games). I have all of them labeled so I know exactly what games they are(year, opponent, points scored, etc). I know I'll probably never watch most of them, but it's still cool to have all of his greatest performances on tape. I'd love to transfer them all over to DVD, but I would probably have to set aside a full year to do it. [​IMG]

    Brent, they have DVD recorders out now that you can treat like a VHS machine. In other words, send the RCA-out of your VHS into RCA-in of the DVD recorder. Presto chango, in 2.5 hours you have a DVD. You could probably do at least one per day, so no more than 150 days. Do 2 a day, and you could be done in a few months. Just saying. [​IMG]

    Mikah,

    Yeah, I've thought about doing that, but it just seems like a lot of work to do for a bunch of games I'll probably never watch again anyway. At some point I might actually break down and do it, but for right now I think I'll just keep the games on video. Thanks for the suggestion, though. [​IMG]
