Michael Jordan’s Emotional Hall Of Fame Speech

Michael Jordan, often regarded as the most talented basketball player of all time, made an emotional speech, during his Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Springfield, Mass. yesterday. It was a speech filled with interesting stories about what drove him to such greatness. As he states, “”You look for any kind of message to get you motivated to play the game of basketball at the highest level.” The best thing about his speech, though, is that it shows you that even people as talented as Jordan had to rise above their critics and their fears. “One day you might look up and see me playing a game at 50.Don't laugh. Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.” The YouTube video is an edited version of the speech. Head on over to NBA to watch it in its entirety.
