I think that most non-Jeter haters who watched the game would react to that by saying, "Maybe not, but so what?"
The slap was the right call AND it also fit quite well with what else we know about ARod. The two are not at all the same and it doesn't have anything to do with what team you root for.
It's not like Jordan was going up for the layup and someone came up on that side so he had to change hands to make the shot.
I advanced to a portion of the video that featured a woman saying (so help me G-d), "He came so quick!"
That's pretty much always been my opinion about the famous switching hands layup Jordan did against the Lakers in the 1991 Finals (the legendary Marv Albert call, "A spec-TAC-ular play!"). I mean, yeah, it was the Finals, but it wasn't a game changing play or anything. And it was pointless showboating. It's not like Jordan was going up for the layup and someone came up on that side so he had to change hands to make the shot. He had a wide open layup and he switched hands to make a more difficult shot just because he was Michael Jordan and because he could. Showboating annoys me; it doesn't impress me.
(and I'm going off my 11 year old boyhood memory. I apologize if some of the details aren't 100% accurate)
What did he see coming? Whatever it was, he misjudged it (as far as I can remember).
