The Michael Jordan shrug

June 3, 1992: "The Shrug" instantly became a signature move for Jordan after his performance in Game 1 of the 1992 Finals. Jordan's 3-point barrage concluded with his sixth long-range bomb of the first half over dejected Blazers forward Cliff Robinson, after which Jordan looked in the direction of the TV commentators, shrugged his shoulders and extended his hands as if to indicate, "What can I say?" He tied a Finals record for 3's in a game and set a record with 35 first-half points. Oh, the Bulls won the game 122-89 en route to their second straight NBA title.
