Hall of Famer Nikos Galis faced every European top player of his era and even his Airness, Michael Jordan himself. On the 20th of November 1983, North Caroline played in Greece against the Greek national team.

Michael Jordan was 20 years old, Galis was a household name in Greece and here’s footage from North Carolina’s archive from this game. Galis scored 24 points and Jordan had 34 as North Carolina won the game (100-83), which included a historic duel.
