Line(s) of the Day #MichaelJordan


Winning has a price. And leadership has a price. So I pulled people along when they didn’t want to be pulled. I challenged people when they didn’t want to be challenged. And I earned that right as my teammates came after me. They didn’t endure all the things I had to endure. 

The extraordinary sporting icon that is Michael Jordan (1963 – ) on being asked whether his intensity came at the being at the expense of being a nice guy. Jordan’s ferocious will-to-win and extraordinary succeess are highlighted in the enthralling Netflix sporting documentary The Last Dance (2020). You can find another of his great insights here.

  1. My husband has been watching this series…I’ve sat through enough of it to know it’s really interesting….I love when they show me the clips of what others said about him….

    • It’s soooo good. And perfect timing too. It’s fascinating knowing what teammates and rivals thought of him, and what he used as motivation to keep going. Especially when an opponent had a good game against him. When one got 37, he made sure in the next one he got more than that in the first half haha.

    • You’ll love it. So insightful and revealing. Basketball wasn’t that big here in the 90s but he always was. Even the stuff I knew about I’m finding new information and insight on.

    • So gifted. I love that photo. But wow he went all out for it. Intense winning mentality. You could see how much it took out of him. The whole show reveals so much.

  2. Absolutely loving this series. Seeing life behind the scenes is so enlightening. Did I ever tell you I saw him play in person? 🤩

    • I won’t be forgetting haha. Just majestic even watching him on highlights. Just incredible. The show gives so much detail and insight. They even got Obama on there! More than a few heroes and villains in there and winners and losers. Not to mention “interesting” management techiques at board level haha.
