this is why MJ is the greatest...no other athlete has had a more in depth and personal struggle broadcast before the world...and won. he didn't win because it was what we expected. he won for himself and it is what he expected. he won to squelch his enemies (personally, physically, mentally, and on the court). he is the ultimate competitor because his opponent was himself and no other athlete. this is what the younger generation never got to witness...and while watching tapes are great, witnessing it was another story (life changing you could say).
