“I have no individual goals,” said Jordan. “We play for one reason and that’s to win the title.

You will follow my lead.”

“There are plenty of teams in every sport that have great players and will never win titles,” explained Jordan. Most times, these players aren’t willing to sacrifice for the greater good of the team.
