A Legacy Comes To An End

Posted on: September 15, 2009

When the majority of the world sees Michael Jordan (MJ) on TV he is making a big shot in the playoffs or holding another MVP trophy. Rarely did we see MJ like we saw him on September 11 2009… He was crying like a little baby. Of course, a lot of people would be crying too if you were thought to be the greatest basketball player of all time and your career was coming to an end. However MJ didn’t let his fans down. He thanked them all for there support and thanked every coach he ever had. On the other hand, some people thought that his speech was cocky and arrogant. People think that it was wrong to invite the player that made the varsity team instead of him to his hall of fame induction and make fun of him on how he never made it and he did. Or stabbing his teammates and North Carolina in the back by having a North Carolina State coach standing on the stage with him while he was giving his speech. However, MJ has the right to do all that he does as he is considered the greatest basketball player of all time. Regardless if he would shoot over you, dunk on top of you or talk trash, he still is the greatest player. “I don’t look at being inducted into the hall of fame as the end of my career, but as a continuation of something I started a long time ago. Who knows maybe you’ll look up and see me playing at fifty. O don’t laugh because limits are like fears the are often just an illusion.” Michael Jordan Class of 2009michael_jordan1242892345
