With his iconic swagger and unrivalled skill-set, arguably no other player has had quite the same impact on the NBA and the sport of basketball as a whole as a certain Michael Jordan.

In a historic career in which he came synonymous with the Chicago Bulls franchise, two-time Olympic gold medalist and 14-time All-Star Jordan won six championships and forged a reputation as the greatest player that the league has ever seen.

Such a prestigious career was obviously littered with amazing memories that most of us mere mortals could only dream of living.

Jordan has been re-living some of those memories recently in an interview conducted in preparation for the launch of NBA 2K14 on next-generation consoles.

During the fascinating interview Jordan, who is now the majority shareholder of the Charlotte Bobcats, talks of his most-memorable dunks.

With a broad grin on his face, Jordan instantly recalls his famous slam on former New York Knicks star and close friend Patrick Ewing.

In Game three of the 1991 Eastern Conference playoff series at Madison Square Garden, Jordan skilfully rolled past Charles Oakley before rising to throw down a monster slam over the helpless Ewing.

Watch footage of that legendary slam above - with thanks to Sports Illustrated.

Part II of Jordan's recent interview can be seen here.
