The “Windy City” and the Chicago Bulls have reportedly been picked to host the 2020 NBA All-Star Game. The current roster isn’t comprised of much talent, but those older Bulls squads? Well, that’s a whole different story.

The last time the All-Star Game was posted up in the “Windy City,” Michael Jordan was taking flight in his prime. Trace back to 1988 during the semifinals of the event, when the GOAT started from the opposite baseline, only to take off from the free throw to hammer home this monster dunk.

That, friends, is what a 50-grade dunk looks like.
