Just like the game that he was great at he was one of the best, but his tongue is slick, and just like the game of basketball that he played he's good at it!

Reply Ron F. says: July 29, 2019 at 4:19 am Among HOF speeches, only one close to MJ is Shaq but I'll give MJ my vote. He deserves the MVP for HOF speech. Reply Chris Heckert says: July 29, 2019 at 5:06 am 0:35 when you applauding the man who got you banned off the Dream Team. 1:31 A meme is born. 2:50 When you insult the guy inducting you. 6:45 When you insult the guy from you high school basketball team. 7:10 When you insult the Player of the Year. 8:06 When you burn your college coach who happens to be a legend. 11:05 When you wonder if he going to bring up that time you got into a fistfight. 11:55 When you almost let the word "nigga" slip out. 12:30 When Jordan maps out his ownership style – which he then refuses to obey. 12:55 When you imply you're bigger than the HoF. 14:40 Thanks the man who he kept off the Dream Team because that guy beat the crap out of him in the 80s which he used as motivation. 16:30 Mentions my fav player Jon Starks sarcastically. Probably still glad Starks had that 3 waived off at the buzzer when the Knicks beat the Bulls. Then takes shots at a HoF coach & his assistant. 19:25 That look you get when you're like "What dis nigga say?" 22:43 He threatens to do the one thing I believe he could have done, but for whatever reason became too soft to do. 22:52 Awww when you have such a bright future.

In Jordans time they didn't coddle you, he played through true adversity his whole basketball career. Reply askaboutdannyb says: July 30, 2019 at 1:57 pm He didn't mention his first wife Juanita I don't think!!

So, if youre going run down the middle and no is there…. is what like playing alone. when you have no cover, it easy to look like youre better.

I used this clip to explain how a leader talks to lots of people. His job was not in banking or engineering or teaching, he just played basketball but excelled because of his mindset as it happens with other professionals. Really an example for the masses, fantastic MJ.

Reply Ashaun Walwyn says: August 13, 2019 at 11:37 am mike is one big mf i always thought he was tall and lanky because of pic but then i saw the real perspective and he is one of those guys that are taller in real life Reply William Cooper says: August 13, 2019 at 1:18 pm You know. He was THE GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER to ever do it. For what he's done for the game, he paid tribute to the past with David Thompson. And with his business acumen, he set everything up for LEBRON JAMES to become individual corporate brands. As far as the argument between LEBRON and MJ as basketball players, It's not about statistics. It's more psychological. HIS WILL would destroy LeBron's, and NEVER once would he call himself KING, as you see in some of LEBRON'S TWEETS. Now, to agree with many, JORDAN WOULD NOT HAVE WON WITHOUT PIPPEN. But what many don't realize is that JORDAN MADE PIPPEN INTO THE PLAYER HE WAS. HE made PIPPEN INTO AN ALL-STAR after hours after Practices, teaching a kid from Arkansas the Carolina way. PIPPEN was his championship project. I wish LEBRON would have taken time out to do that, just once. BIG HUGE DIFFERENCE. It takes more work, but the appreciation is better when you build it from the ground up and endure, not go and join up with other superstars.
