GREAT INSPIRATION FROM MICHAEL JORDAN


MICHAEL JORDANMichael Jordan’s individual accolades and accomplishments include five MVP awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances, three All-Star Game MVP awards, ten scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. He holds the NBA records for highest career regular season scoring average (30.12 points per game) and highest career playoff scoring average (33.45 points per game). In 1999, he was named the greatest North American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN, and was second to Babe Ruth on the Associated Press’s list of athletes of the century. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.

Jordan is also noted for his product endorsements. He fueled the success of Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers, which were introduced in 1985 and remain popular today. Jordan also starred in the 1996 feature film Space Jam as himself. He is the majority owner and head of basketball operations for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, having won a bidding war to buy controlling interest in the team from founding owner Robert L. Johnson.

While we have been witnesses to all his achievements and have seen re-runs and highlights over and over again, and almost everybody I know has bought a Chicago Bulls shirt or hat, or a Michael Jordan shirt, hat or his poster etc all of which are a tribute to his greatness and his contribution to the NBA. However, we never see the other side, the hours at the gym, the missed shots, the failures, yes failures of M J. No I am not tripping list to his words.

MICHAEL JORDAN ON MAKING IT LOOK TOO EASY

MICHAEL JORDAN – LOOK ME IN THE EYES

Look me in the eyes.
It’s okay if you’re scared, So am I.
But we’re scared for different reasons.
I’m scared of what I won’t become, and you’re scared of what I could become.
Look at me.
I won’t let myself end where I started, I won’t let myself finish where I began.
I know what is within me, Even if you can’t see it yet.
Look me in the eyes.
I have something more important than courage, I have patience.
I will become, what I know I am.
