Michael Jordan’s Basketball Hall of Fame induction speech was Jordan at his most honest, his most real. He cried, thanked his friends and family, praised his so-called enemies and proved that he is forever the most competitive person alive. In this speech Michael proved to the world that despite all the trash talking he did on the court he was a totally different person off it. He felt sorry for his kids because of the high expectations that they have to live with being the son of arguably the greatest basketball player of all time. After an earlier news conference where he did his best to sound humble, Jordan’s big speech was littered with his own tears and his own jokes, and most were good-natured, but he made it a point to recognize those who have inspired him over the years. It was certainly befitting his reputation, and it wasn’t all that funny.
