1985 Push Excel All-star game

At the end of the 84-85 season, the Push Excel program sponsored an all-star game between NBA veterans and NBA rookies. Push Excel is a program led by the Rev. Jesse Jackson with the goal of pushing disadvantaged youths towards academic excellence. Since this was a game purely for entertainment purposes, it is filled with highlights and fun plays. The final score of the game was 177-155, with the NBA veterans winning in style. Jordan contributed 37 points, and plenty of highlight dunks to his team.
