    No other perimiter player will ever have the same playing resume, effect on the game, and singular accomplishments that Michael did. The best ever? Bet on Black.

    Tears. Can’t thank Rtbulls enough for putting this together today. He’s been representing the Bulls right since the beginning.

    *sheds a tear* MJ is the GOAT, no doubt. :)

    on a different note: Have you guys heard Pat Riley’s suggestion for the NBA to retire the number 23?

    @ LeoneL – I think that’s a great idea. Nobody should sport that number, it’s sacred. Just like #99 in the NHL.

    @Wayno, That’s what Pat said. I too think it’s a great idea. The HEAT retired the number and the GOAT never played for them so it should be no problem for other teams (except maybe for Cleveland..lol).

    I believe that #23 should be retired by every team. Sort of like baseball did where Mariano Rivera continues to wear his number since it was league-retired after he began wearing it.

    EBoy: Shouldn’t it be bet on RED for this instance? IIRC the Bulls had a horrible record with those black jerseys.

    Respect Paid.

    Well, Black was a nickname he went by, so that was the reference point.

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    Congrats, MJ. Classy move by picking David Thompson too.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Well, that was wonderful.

    Great stuff… but there’s a boatload of repeated footage in those videos. Dude couldn’t find more JORDAN footage? Really?

  • Jake

    Ah,just when I thought I was over MJ being retired,he re-opens the wounds.I don’t care what anyone says..there will never be another one like him.Anyone similar is just a copycat and I’m the biggest Kobe fan out there but the imitation is never as good as the real thing.Marcus Jordan-NBA draft 2012?

  • a_whiteman

    hes the reason my son is named jordan. If i was deserted on an island and could have 1 movie to watch, it would without a doubt be my ultimate jordan.

  • jaeM.

    MJ is the greatest ever, But now watch out for Lebron James.

  • http://nba.com tealish

    It was a nice video but I couldn’t help but think those same thoughts, Jukai.
    I like the tagline at the end. All too true.

  • http://nba.com tealish

    @Jake: Marcus has given up on that dream already.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Congratulations, Michael Jordan!

  • J.C.

    I’d love someone to suggest league-retiring #23 just to see LeBron’s reaction. He’d probably immediately think of changing to #24 and when he realised Kobe already had that he’d flip.

  • Lz – Cphfinest3

    Simply the greatest ever and it’s not even close. Money was Mike/Mike was Money.

  • http:///realcavsfans.com Anton

    @ J.C. not that you care, but he’d change it to # 6

  • Clay

    Cool video and amazing player. Respect GOAT
    I feel very lucky to have been old enough to remember watching his career from ’91

    Every team should retire #23 and just let LBJ keep wearing it…

    C’mmon people stop putting Mj and Lebron James in the same sentence, please..

  • http:///www.realcavsfans.com Anton

    Both Michael Jordan and LeBron James enjoy ice cream as a tasty dessert.

  • Damir

    and that’s about it Anton:)

  • http://bulls.com airs

    okay did anyone else read today’s article on yahoo about MJ being petty?? i acutally missed the cereony but this seemed ridiculously petty itself. sounded like a jazz fan wrote it.


    is he for real?

    My favorite moment of Jordan’s career was when he went back in time and stopped himself from playing for the wizards lol

    Still the best, always will be the best..

  • Erika Badu

    overrated, selfish, egomaniac who was coddled by the league and refs his whole career. I hate this man.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Wait, hold up. Overrated?

  • Jap Rheberg

    Nid I Explain??
    He is the greatest!

    Even with speakers off (sitting at work, ahem) I still have the announcers in my head “look at the hangtime, look at the flying motion” …
