The news of the week has been the induction of Michael Jordan, David Robinson, and John Stockton into the Hall of Fame. While there really isn’t too much to actually say about the fact that they are now in the Hall but I thought we could quickly look at the issues of the day and throw in our two cents:
-MJ’s Speech: Apparently Jordan’s speech has been a bit of a hot button issue. I didn’t watch the whole thing but, from what I saw, the theme of the speech was basically that MJ talked about his drive and how it was fueled by slights throughout his career and that his still remembers those slights very well, still wants to kick everybody’s ass, and is still pretty happy that he did kick most people’s asses most of the time. He remembered his being cut from the high school team (and even invited to the Hall of Fame the guy who made the high school team over him). Jordan also brought up Jerry Krause, Bryon Russell, Pat Riley, and Jeff Van Gundy among others and ended his speech with a quasi-serious threat that he could still play and beat everyone.
