Why you want Lebron James on your team, not Michael Jordan
There’s been a lot of flack given to Lebron James about him being in opportunist who abandoned Cleveland. I disagree with the heat he has received and find that there was another NBA star who really deserved the heat that James got – Michael Jordan.
Jordan’s 2nd retirement happened during the lockout in 1999 when the bulls traded away Pippen and Rodman and coach Phil Jackson left. Jordan left the bulls without any of their starting three although he could have stayed and played with a new supporting team. Instead he chose to walk away when he still had gas in the tank.
I’d much rather have on my team people who are hungry for winning and a new opportunity than someone who walks away because their is a new boss or his friends were transferred or traded.
If you want to hate someone, hate Jordan, not Lebron.
