Michael Jordan Picture - Unstoppable
Since he started playing pro, Michael Jordan showed the world how basketball should be played.
He was one of the few players with the heart and tenacity to play from the tip-off to the buzzer. His raw talent was perpetually honed into unstoppable skill and even if you weren't a Bulls fan (myself included) you had to have a lot of respect for Mike for his ability and reputation.
He had no drugs or real scandals throughout his career. That in and of itself speaks volumes. He brought attention back to the NBA and created fans every time he touched the ball.
No other player can come out of retirement twice and still look so great. He was an amazing player and a thrill to watch.
