A Must Read Piece on Michael Jordan

Because ESPN doesn’t really talk about anything serious, they have provided for us a month-long special on Michael Jordan.  He turned 50 this past Sunday (Feb 17).

MJ was my hero when I was a kid.  I literally had everything MJ.  When I was 9, I even went to the store and purchased his #45 jersey with a bunch quarters, nickels, and dimes, the day it was released.  I had over 300+ MJ cards.  I had the posters.  I had the wardrobe.   I had the shoes.  In my opinion, there is no question he is still the greatest basketball player ever to play.  Will Lebron be better?  I honestly don’t think so.  There is only one MJ.

ESPN’s, Wright Thompson, released a pretty impressive long-form piece on MJ’s basketball career, business endeavors, and current mental psyche.  I have to admit, I felt absolutely empty as I read it.  As I finished the article, I felt extremely sad for MJ.  In a way, my childhood heart aches for him.

I mean, this guy has everything.  But, really, he has nothing.

If you are a child of the 80s and 90s, then take 30-minutes and read this article.  I bet your childhood heart breaks too.

Uprinting is a pretty cool company that does promotional material for non-profits.  They just picked up my ministry, The Veritas Network, as one of their sponsors.  Love it.
