Bryant and Michael
Jordanoh this is the message that every guys been waiting to see I learned a lot this cared a lot about how technically sound Michael was this is one thing I'm watching them play and then there's nothing playing against them he's out of the postgraduate course for this technique was flawless I wanted to make sure my technique was just as flawless big down a half court he wanted to know how when I turn around on my jump shot how to do the defense I told me she feels the defense with the legs once the through the defense's her leg you can take advantage of that that was very inspiring for me I remember talking to Michael about his motivation every night and he used to say that maybe there was somebody in the stands that never had a chance to see me play for the first time and I want to make sure they go home and they see the best of me I remember being a kid in growing games expecting to see the players play a number curtain at the time that they might be tired sore they might be sick never curse me I just wanted to see them do what they do I think about that doesn't matter if I'm saved doesn't matter if I have explained ankle the kid that sent in there might be the next me sitting up there watching and trying to get inspiration from that I need to go out there and play we're talking about I'm 36 years old 19th season in the league planet the best one ever felt like work...
to me no once I came to the NBA I looked around I saw all the guys that weren't working as much as I was then I started to understand that you know how I went about it is hard work to me it was just I just love what I do so I want to do it as much as possible passion and people have to be lucky to find passion and oh yeah you do you're doing if you're really lucky you finally out of early age I am a 17 year old kid at the same time you have to understand when to separate business more pleasure mix the two that's when we start to fall no now it's time to go in there it's time to do some work on the west coast at least show Tom doing that thing back down fadeaway crossover playground moons shades going behind your leg like that did you set goals when you started in the NBA did you have goals at that point certain things that you wanted to do it was really simple for me at the time which is where as many championships as possible fact that was that was it growing up I understood that to be the standard much magical fine I watched Michael win six people talk about your relationship with Michael
Jordanstraighten this out first the time at the forum or wherever that was Phil had Michael come to the game it's at the table you remember that I read somewhere where it said that you didn't challenge him or he didn't challenge you it didn't happen it did happen because I was sitting right at the table at the table so Phil asked Michael if he...
wasn't do anything just come by practice maybe want to play maybe we can find out what you got and then you said back no maybe I find out what you got and then he said that way you can't guard me and then you said you can't guard me you how were you 21 21 years old there's a silent moment and then when we walked out when walk down the hall Mike goes I love that dude man he's a warrior cuz you did not step back is like well maybe we'll see let's play when we can play tomorrow I got used a bat all day long I know you ain't talking oh you wait yeah you only got three max ha ha you only got three man I grew up watching him and I grew up having that same type of edge and competitiveness I know you gotta get up quick if you knew where I was or why you go over to Baker Mike after you favor ball real smooth up your feet everywhere else you going on the game I go for you explore your hope for these fields right here Michael I both know certain players that we can intimidate in certain players aren't free sorry hey I should have been with a clap going down every now and then you went to a player and it has the same DNA G got st. peddle of spirit you you quickly realize that the bullying and trash-talking is not gonna work for this person this you can watch nothing on I know you lost your mind he's going makes you think they're back in scoring ya know I'm pretty confident you don't talk to Sophie to get 50 drop have you run into...
anybody playing to their young younger players that have that same fire that same passion that you have for the game Westbrook plays he plays me like I did with an aggression watch the way I play
