Michael Jordan had an incredible ability to perceive basketball. His skill went beyond human. Even if he told opponents what he was going to do or how he was going to score, they couldn’t stop him. The basketball court was his little playground and few other players could prevent him from doing what he wanted.
But his competitiveness bordered on insanity and he wasn’t necessarily quiet and humble on the court. Nonetheless, he helped the NBA grow in popularity around the world and redefined what people thought was possible for athletes.
