This guy was hyper-intelligent. He understood that it was a battle between himself and his desires, and that his mind was in control, and he knew that no one else understood that the same way he did, and that alone put him on another level.He was at the pinnacle of self control/self manipulation, where others would let things get in the way, fear/doubt/complacency/fatigue, etc. He mastered the ability to make his mind and body do whatever it needed to to achieve his desire. If I were a neuroscientist, or even a psychologist I'd be all over Jordan, asking to study him. One in a 100 billion mind.
He possessed The Master Key and used It to unlock his own " Hidden Splendor. "
True I noticed that about MJ. It’s like his mind and body are in perfect motion together like a car. I just wish I had the same physical attributes my dream was to be a basketball player
This post is illuminating. But I would substitute "desires" with "instincts", it suits better to me. Whatever, again, great point.
This is the first time I have ever taken a screenshot of a Clip-Share comment
I have a question. Is it possible to gain this kind of mindset?
"Work ethic elminates fear. If you put forth the work, then what are you fearing? You know what you're capable of doing and what your not."
Work ethic eliminates fear. If you put forth the work, then what are you fearing? You know what you're capable of doing and what you're not.
It seems as if Michael Jordan let everyone know where they belong!!
This is why him and Kobe are in a completely different class than the rest!
That's golden rt there!!!!
"Work ethic eliminates fear" Powerful statement!!
Michael Jordan is the most athletic human being I've ever seen. When you take his leaping ability, hang time, speed, agility, body control, hand-eye coordination, strength, and quickness and consider the fact that he's 6' 6", his athleticism was absolutely off the charts. Then when you combine that unmatched athletic ability with his phenomenal work ethic and competitive fire, you get the greatest player of all time.
You forgot to add his intelligence, basketball IQ, leadership, shooting ability, discipline, seriousness and clutch factor.
Jordan was the hardest working and most disciplined basketball player there ever was and he is still unmatched in the game...by ANYONE.
jliveslife the game became a long distance battle, 3pt competition.....…
What about Kobe?
@oihgrtzjgggjkk Kobe came close but wasn’t there but Kobe has his own legacy that will be remembered forever and he’s his own man
This man, no excuses, no bs! MJ found solutions and ways to make it happen!Every time this man's foot touched the court you knew something amazingly magical was going to happen.
"work ethic eliminate d fear." - MJ was, is and forever be d GOAT 👊👊👊
I'll show you my goat.
work eliminates fear... preach MJ!
listening to MJ talk explains perfectly why he's the goat!!
Mike said he physically couldn't compete with the Pistons. He got in the weight room & got bigger & stronger. Champion bred no excuses he elevated.
Thats a champion talking. Champion in life for me. He talks about his passion like he is still playing. Thats obsession brother.
Listening to a legend wow mentally trick himself to be better strong headed strong on court
“Work ethic eliminates fear.” Thank you MJ!
MJ: "WHEN YOU HAVE LOVE FOR ANYTHING YOU'LL GO TO THE EXTREME, TO MAINTAIN THAT LOVE. THAT'S WHAT LOVE DOES, IT'S LOVE DRIVES YOU TO DO EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO, TO MAINTAIN THAT CONNECTION".
He will always be the greatest he changed the game
Growing up in the heart of Chicago, it was this man alone that kept me out of trouble and hanging with the wrong crowds.
Im not from Chicago nor I am from the US of A but MJs inspiration grew all over the world so I wont be wondering if he inspired people from Chicago to be better lucky city to have such inspiration as the GOAT himself
It was awesome living in Chicago in that era , everyone wanted to be like Mike it was fun playing ball at that time .
And a bigger man you turned out to be.👍
Being a Kobe fan, got to say MJ is the best of all time. No doubt. The mental Game of this guy was just in another level.
Same here dude!!!!
Kobe was a great player and he's better than Lebron, but he ain't in jordans league
Lebron is great he is skilled but he lacks the mind, the will to win
Kobe emulated all of Jordan’s moves. He couldn’t help but be great.
"LOVE for the game" that's what pushes him Truly an incredible person and athlete. GOAT
I remember MJ battling New York some of the best I seen.MJ had that fire not to lose by any means necessary.The G.O.A.T....So blessed to have watched MJ play..
Not best ever
God bless you 23...greatest athlete of all time and a great human being
Put MJ or atleast orginal 23, other people may think it's lebron.. Lolz
cheeze zlayer damn right
I dont know why it never struck me before, but when The Flu game ended Jordan falls into Pippens arms, it really shows how close they were. Not a lot of people can get close to MJ, not a lot of teammates especially, but Pippen and MJ loved each other.
They more or less grew up in the league together.LeBron fans seem to think that Pippen was an established star when he came to Chicago. Pippen was one of those late blooming prospects that needed polishing. Pippen was a draft day trade that was made by the 80s version of Danny Ainge.
Rofl he didn't have the flu. He partied too hard and long thr night before.
Jordan highlights still gives me chills....like no other basketball player ever
To him, the greatest thing abt basketball is passion and love. To the world, the greatest thing abt basketball is MJ. As a basketball fan, I'm lucky Jordan played my sport.
Perfect lesson of personal motivation course from the greatest of all time.
Some have just the physical, some have just the mental, but Jordan had Both at a high level, the Perfect Shooting guard/Basketball player
He was so good that never allowed a game 7 WHEN IT MATTERED. But, I can only imagine how this man would play on a game 7 of the finals. He would have destroyed everyone.
Neither did. LeBron....he got swept
Ulysses432 talk about the Finals but I get your point
Nathan K. When he was a rookie smh
You can see it when they play against indiana at semi finals game 7. He may not scored well but on defense he gave his all. Reggie miller is point less in the 4th qtr. They maybe older ( mike, rodman, and pip compared to indiana) but they have the heart of a legend. The desire to win nothngs compare. Look how exausted Mike after the game. During the game you cant see that they are tired.
Dashing_Davey Just to clarify, the Bulls lost to the Pistons in 6 games in 1989. They took them to 7 games in the Eastern Conference Finals in 1990 but lost. Then in 1991 the Bulls finally got their revenge and swept the 2-time defending champion Pistons en route to their 1st of 3 straight championships. Being born and raised in Chicago since 1983 these are some of my best memories, hard to forget.
His words about passion and love at the end are eternal. Passion is what made him what he is. Those who find that kind of passion in life, and are able to hold on to it, are blessed.
I've seen everything this man did in the league but it never gets old.
“Work ethic eliminates fear.” -M.J.Faxts.
Greatness personified! He is and always will be the best to ever do it!
Work ethic eliminates fear! What a profound statement! You can always tell when someone is experienced in whatever they're talking about (has put whatever work into) soley based on their words and how they're able to communicate and express what they mean, know and have personally experienced. Work ethic reveals so much about who someone is. Something that most that don't have work ethic are confused by and or interpretate wrong.
His movements on the court were so graceful, was pure artistry. No one has ever come close except Kobe (RIP) to some degree....
This is what I remember that motivation was growing up, he fought and came back MJ, thanks for being awesome
I’m a musician and I model my playing after what Micheal Jordan says. Especially when he said “practice as if you’re playing for real, so the time comes to do it for real it’s not new to you.”
“I practice as if I'm playing a game, so when the moment comes in the game, its not new to me."
Luc longley said that practice was easier than game played
Ulysses432 you understood my thoughts
What does that mean for? I cant really understand it.
@Deo Saut the pratices were very hard
MJ is the GOAT but I loved watching Clyde "The Glide" Drexler too. Drexler was an elite player and he's a class act. No one is, or was, as good as Jordan. Clyde was one step down, in the Jordan era, and Portland was the perfect City for him. He's a smart guy and could have been more of a star but he always struck me as an introvert. He wanted to, and played to, win but I never sensed he wanted the spotlight, tons of commercials a big shoe deal etc. He's always listed as a SG but I think he was more of an undersized, absurdly athletic SF. His shot was super unorthodox. His Portland teams always contended and, like so many, Jordan kept a ring from Clyde. I've seen him once in Seattle and once in Portland. People love him!! I hope he's healthy and wealthy!
james lachs very slept on player just cuz he played in the same era as MJ
Good post. Drex gets little respect but he was great. And yeah, he was more like an undersized SF than a SG.
Yes it’s unfortunate but losing to the best over is nothing to be shamed.
Chicago was blessed to have this man!
It was the greatest moment for chicago city..
Definitely loved and cherished every minute of it. ♥️🖤
during the championship seasons the bull never had a 3 game losing streak
MJ and Brady have a lot alike when you listen to them speak - practice, preparation, teammates, knowing your opponent...this is what separates the good ones from the great ones.
Simply the greatest, Michael Jordan
THE BEST TO EVER PLAY THE GAME. MICHAEL JEFFREY JORDAN #23 .........G.O.A.T, PERIOD!
Michael Jordan is the GOAT hands down no body could touch his legacy
Michael Jordan had the skill set as the Best Player of all time. People acknowledge him as the GOAT because his passion and attitude for the game made him the Champion he was. He competed against himself. The only player with a similar passion and attitude for the game was Kobe Bryant. His legacy as the GOAT, will never be matched.
I disagree with u abt the competitiveness. Magic and Bird were just as competitive and they hated losing to each other. Bird still mad cus he lost to Magic in the ncaa championship and Magic still let him know he beat him.....lol
@Leroy Mckenzie Jr. JNF Enterprises LLC. yep. Bird n magic were indeed hyper competitive similar to MJ. Kobe was too, but I'm not convinced he was on the other threes level.. I watched pretty much every playoff game Jordan ever played, he never folded, shyed away, submitted, disappeared. But Kobe has. I watched him throw in the towel to the Celtics. Right in the same situations I've seen Jordan in, except Jordan pushed harder when that happened, he dug deep and willed his team to victory, or to at least go down swinging. I'll never forget sitting there saying ok Kobe u gotta do something now's the Time(same thing I used to say in bulls games), but he never even tried. He was deflated. N so was I, I lost all belief that he was anywhere close to MJ.
Poor clyde. He was so good too. Elite basketball player.
Born in the wrong era. Lol. Clyde was damn special too.
The problem is that Clyde was a very similar type of player to MJ, and that meant he would inevitably be overshadowed.
Jordan robbed so many greats of titles. Good thing for the Rockets he took a break. :)
It doesn't matter
@DFTA (Don't Feed The Animals) Man could've won 8 titles in a row, it's insane when you think about it
The reason MJ is the greatest is because he's the only guy youd have to actually kill if you managed to get him in a finals game 7 to take a title from.
I forgot his name but he's one of MJ23's tough competitor, he said you have to rip MJ23's heart out to beat him.
Johnny Walker, I believe that comment was said by George Karl, former coach of the Seattle SuperSonics.
Kenneth Erickson haha you nailed it...
Jordan never played a game 7
Which of course never happened. Whenever MJ sniffed the smell of an NBA title, 6 games were the maximum opponents could hope for.
When you swing your baseball bat, while smoking a cuban Churchill in a locker room before a playoff NBA game, you know you are the league’s daddy.
You Betta know it !!!!!!!!!
We need more competitive spirits in the current NBA. Draymond's got it, few others do now.
Ray Smith yea most definitely
Players more worried about looking cool than trying hard. I believe one day someone like Jordan will come along and change that though. Somebody dominant and hyper competitive. And everyone else will have to rise to that level to compete w him.
I needed inspiration with my studies. Thanks Jordan for sharing your mindset.
Passion!!! No other word to subscribe this!!! You are the best basketball 🏀 player in the world !!!hands down!! ..and thank you for the greatest memories ever !! U are in inspiration to all basketball player of how you should play the game!!! With passion!!MJ23!!!
Man. Watching this video made me realize how soft the NBA is right now.
Haruno Kenji ikr, shits sad
Nba is wild soft rn😂😂
Haruno Kenji facts
I totally agree 💯%
He was competitive on a level of legends.
What makes MJ special is that he never forgot about Scottie Pippen during his Enshrinement Speech.After everything was said and done.. Teams win Championships.
yeah it took mj a minute to figure it out..but he did.
@Paul Kim it's coming along for the best moment
"Anything try'n to take something from us... That's rivalry"Imagine putting this guy in today's NBA. Damn.
"Work ethic eliminates fear" If Michael Jordan never played basketball he would have been a great man doing something else. His parents raised him right and his siblings as well.
Jordan Did Attempt Baseball
He had nothing else to prove after his first ring. Yet he played his entire career like he had everything to prove
That phone call with Ahmad was comedy gold 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
"Anybody who tries to take anything from us is a rival" That's how you protect a legacy. Don't let them catch you lacking, because you underestimated your opponent.
Simply put, THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER!
"Work ethics eliminates fear." -Michael Jordan
This is truly my favorite.Thanks to Michael Jordan for extremely valuable information which is the truth and the person (man or woman) who upload this video to Clip-Share.
Most of us know MJ was the best during those years particularly when he was at the prime of his career. He should be the reason today’s and future players should strive to be better at their game.
His competitiveness started out playing against his older brother Larry......then him not making the varsity squad only fueled his desire to make sure that it will never happen again.
JPLMONEY23 u mean larry bird?! lol
mj was the friend you didn't want to play nintendo wth. you'd end up giving him a purple nurple because you didn't quite want to punch your friend.....but you wanted him to feel something..lol
BASELINE JORDAN!!!!! No, true story about him being competitive with his older brother. It’s the reason why he wore 23 which was half of 45. 45 divided by two is 22.5.
I've been there, got that same fire, but my fire faded, MJs never did. It stayed burning hot as fk for decades. I'll never understand how he stayed so driven.
@M Frusciante yeah I hated him because he killed my team the Lakers the first time he won his championship but I was said to myself this guy is the best
Work erases FEAR cause now you know you capabilities and limitations. WoW MJ, thanks!
And that ladies and gentlemen what separates this man from the rest, PERIOD!!!!!
Of course, everyone is going to have there favorites no matter what anyone says. I say MJ is the best because I grew up watching him and cheering for him. Even when he beat my Pacers. It's the same with anything. I grew up in the '70s and '80s and love that era's music over what is being played today. That's not saying I can't enjoy things today or players of today. When you see all the replays of MJ you see him getting bashed making a basket. Todays NBA is a lot different than back then. There are way too many whiners when they get fouled. I think when the GOAT gets thrown around today it should be by the era not of all time. Just like MJ says you disrespect the players before you. Stick with the era.
It seems to me that guys like MJ, Tiger Woods, Nikki Lauda, Christiano Ronlado have similar mindsets...borderline insane ultra competitive streak, obsession with work ethic and need to be the best of the best. Also they all seem to give zero thought of what haters think of them. God I wish I had that passion!!!
I have that passion.
Absolutely true. Very early in my life, I recognized the value and the uniqueness of life. I made a decision. I wanted to be free. If you want to be free, independent and autonomous, you need to educate yourself! Don't hesitate. Go for it!
If youre into sports its hard not to admire this guy, all the goats of this generation of every sport look up to jordan. His mentality is real.
He took whatever he did in practice and did it in the game plan as simple I’ve learned from the best and I do it all the time it works either u make the basket or not it’s all about effort salute to the greatest player of all time
How lucky I grew up in Chicago and Jordan played for us. Can't imagine if he played for someone else. So lucky.
Very articulate and educated when he speaks. No uhms and ahhs, straight to the point, evry statement is sensible. He plays as a leader and speaks as a leader.. GOAT in evry sense of the word! 👏👏👏👌
fish ball 🐐
Len Bias would've definitely given him a run for the money. We must never forget Len Bias. M. J. had the mind of a complete athlete and competitor. The mind is always the priority over just the body.
Jordan beat len bias in college.. I don't know if len made it into the nba that would be something worth to see
No athlete inspired my life more than Jordan. Faced with any obstacle I can watch footage of him and feel like I can do anything. The name Jordan will mean pure greatness to an entire generation. Nobody in any sport is ever going to reach his level. He wasn't once in a generation. He was once in lifetime. There's no discussion of who the greatest is. Anybody who wants to argue that has no knowledge of the game or is an idiot. Period.
THIS IS WHY!!! I LOVE MICHAEL JEFFREY JORDAN!!!! SPIRIT OF A GOD!!!!
@5:13Legendary words straight from the legend... love it
As competitive as Kobe was....I sense a competitive rage when I hear Jordan talk.
Kobe wasn't as competitive at all..
yeah okayyyy. Kobe was just as competitive. Search up stories bruh.
Kobe told Jordan I would beat you! Done....
+Forgem Nos"The [competitiveness] for Kobe [stops] at the [basketball court]. He's not competitive anymore. With Michael, he wants to race you in a car, he wants to beat ya at ping-pong, he wants to play cards with ya, he wants to play ya in golf, all of those things. He's competitive [all the way through]."Phil Jackson: "10 Differences Between Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant clip-share.net/video/LxO3vzp4gTI/video.html
Listen to him and then listen to the casual approach players take today. A world of difference...that's why MJ will always be the GOAT...
man, this one's a beast. i wish i couldve seen him play
"If you have a passion for something, you'll go to the extreme to maintain that love."
I was there. This man is the GOAT.
The repetition of greatness is legendary
You can't watch this and say anyone else is the BEST. MJ is TBE
This guy breathes and live just for the competition and the challenge and to win
We lived to see a legend
I love Jordan he's the first player i learned of the love and his passion he came in and started the evolution of the kobes and lebrons and the hardens durants and the Westbrook's ask any of them and they say MJ was my guy MJ came in and at the right time just changed the game forever that's why he is the greatest
Absolute GOAT. Jordan alwsys on fire when he talks about basketball.
Think about this. In the same season Jordan won mvp defensive player of the year and the scoring title. That will never ever happen again
I hate basketball with a passion......BUT ill stop and watch JORDAN play anytime...HE WAS THAT GREAT. To make a non basketball fan stop and watch a whole game is saying something. the TRUE AND ONE AND ONLY BASKETBALL GOAT
Legend. Bow for his game
The fire and intensity in these players is remarkable.
Notice how he said the coach, then him, then Scottie etc. Even Jordan respected his coaching. Something these kids today don’t do and why they will never be on the levels of Jordan, Bird, and Magic.
kkash72 yesterday Lebron proclaim himself as the GOAT lol😊😊😊😊 I KNOW you’re the GOAT =going on another team 😊😊😊very delusional ! I feel sorry to LEBRON
This exactly what I keep hearing about lebron
It was Phil Jackson
absolutely on point
damn...the greatest thing about basketball (according to mj), is the passion HE brings to the game...lol
Jordan talking with that cigar in his mouth while swing that bat is like basketball Negan.
I like that.That looked like back in the days when video and photographs are b&w.MJ's so confident he can smoke a cigar and play around with a baseball bat in the freakin' locker room!MJ's the GOAT!
Alberto Mangila what’s wrong?
There's an old quote by Calvin Coolidge "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." In Jordan's case, he had it all AND persistence.. Add that to an abject refusal to lose and that's what makes him the G.O.A.T.
No doubt no question MJ is the GOAT on and off the court! Anyone that doubts that is a goat!
SAVAGE! = Any means necessary = MJ GOAT
"...send a message coming in to play us your 10 points down..." Straight 🐐 talk 👈💯#theGoat
this man is a genius.
the part he told about his experience against Detroit is why he became Goat. Every year he made it a point to become stronger than he was prior.
Kid Peligro - Agree. Without the Pistons Jordan still would have had an unbelievable career. Probably would have even won a title or 2. But it was Detroit that created the ruthless, cut-throat, maniacally obsessed, do anything it takes to win, assassin that we all know and love today..
work ethic eliminates fear - I never tried to play like jordan but I dam sure thought like him
That *jordan rule* though......a plan to contain mj.......that's how good he is...nah...not just good...no word to describe his greatness....#GOAT
When lebron lost in finals...he said "its just basketball"mj didnt want to loose...that how competitive mj was than lebron..
Jhen Dela Rosa yeah and meanwhile while LeBron is losing in the finals he says I'm averaging a triple double yeah you are but are those triple doubles consists of wins for your team only one but you lose in 5
charlie davis when did LeBron say it's ok because he had triple doubles. You're confusing what fans said with what he said
Jhen Dela Rosa MJ would be roasting his team that they failed in life and as men as if they had been death if they lost.
Jhen dela. It wasnt just that MJ didn't want to lose.. he refused to lose..
Blissful solitude of legend competitive mind Jordan
"work ethic eliminates fear" GOD DAMN.
