Michael Jordan’s video biography

    Nice info, I didn’t know most of it to be honest, even though I’ve played basketball and used to read about him often enough. I always liked his mentality; when critics told him that he could only play offense, he got the offensive title AND defensive title the year after… Pretty cool response 🙂

      I think most people still don’t realize how great he really was. He is probably still the most recognizable basketball player in the world. I found out most of these facts through my research on Jordan and I’m more impressed by him each day.
