Michael Jordan is widely considered to be the greatest basketball player of all time. He’s arguably one of the greatest athletes of all time. He was a four-time gold medalist with USA Basketball, including winning two Olympic golds, and was twice named the USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year. For more than a decade, he was the face of the NBA.
When we think of Micheal Jordan, we all remember the 6 championships. We all remember the slam dunks, the tongue out. But winning for Micheal only started when he learned that he had to use his teammates. Micheal was so great as an individual that he could come down the court and score anytime he wanted to, literally. The problem with that was you had 4 other players on your team not involved, not engaged, and did not feel valued. “We were all his teammates, but we feared him”- Jud Buechler, Chicago Bulls Player.
Micheal began to learn that to be successful; he had to work on using his teammates. This is when Jordan truly became great. During his championship games, some of his great game-winners came from him passing to his teammates and them knocking down the shot. Whether it was his pass to John Paxon or Steve Kerr Michael learned the Power of Teamwork. Always remember that “teamwork makes the dream work,” so be sure to empower those you surround yourself with.
