I never thought a role model should be negative.
In reality, I never want to grow up.
I wasn’t really a work-conscious type of person. I was a player. I loved to play sports.
I won’t have any competitive instincts in any sports, other than golf. I can’t see being competitive in sports any more.
Purchasing the Bobcats is the culmination of my post-playing career goal of becoming the majority owner of an NBA franchise.
I think the players win the championship, and the organization has something to do with it, don’t get me wrong. But don’t try to put the organization above the players.
I can’t speak for the future. I have no crystal ball.
When I was playing before I retired, I never really understood the appreciation and the respect that people gave me. People had treated me like a god or something, and that was very embarrassing.
I want to play for years.
It’s hard to say if the NBA is hurt by the influx of younger players, but it’s definitely impacted the league.
I’ve had tendinitis since college.
There’s only one Michael Jordan.
I like control.
Being Michael Jordan means acting the same as I always have.
In college I never realized the opportunities available to a pro athlete. I’ve been given the chance to meet all kinds of people, to travel and expand my financial capabilities, to get ideas and learn about life, to create a world apart from basketball.
