A video like this should have more than 600,000 views on YouTube. That sounds like a lot, but how many basketball fans have seen this? If you're among those of us who are watching it for the first time, you're in for a treat.

Here's what you're about to watch:

"What you're about to see is the final few baskets of a back and forth finish, and a classic shootout between Jordan and a very gutsy Craig Ehlo.This amazing footage was shot by the best sports cameraman I know, Chuck Davidson. Chuck, reporter Rich King, and I sat on the floor, as history played out before us."

There's no doubt you're aware of "The Shot" Jordan made in the 1989 playoffs to eliminate the Cavaliers. But it's the post-shot antics of the cameraman and reporter as they chase down Jordan that makes the moment so much more captivating.

A tip of the cap to Wolves TV announcer Dave Benz for sharing this on Twitter.
