Video: Watch Michael Jordan soar and bang his head on the backboard in 1983

We love hoops, in any form, at any level. Boy or girl, man or woman. And we are, sincerely, looking forward to this year's 2011-12 NCAA hoops season, even if the NBA's lockout decides to resolve itself by the end of the working day on Thursday.

And then we see this clip, via TBJ, of Michael Jordan soaring to swoop in and block a shot during a 28-year-old North Carolina/Duke game in 1983, and immediately ... well, watch:

Hurry back, NBA. Jerks.
