Where Is He?

This is from a Sports Illustrated feature by veteran photographer Walter Iooss Jr. In this excerpt, Iooss is discussing one of his favorite subjects, former NBA superstar Michael Jordan.

The error in this paragraph may not be as thrilling as, say, Air Jordan's forceful, one-handed dunk that posterized Patrick Ewing in the 1991 playoffs, but it's worth mentioning. In MJ-like fashion, it leaps off the page. Zoom in. You'll see what I mean. The camera doesn't lie: Iooss left out he between see and was.

Can we retouch that paragraph, Iooss, especially because the he in question refers to arguably the greatest basketball player of all time? (My argument: He is.)
