For over 20 years, people have been speculating on the secret behind Michael Jordan’s success. Mars Blackmon once posed the theory that it might be his shoes, but now the truth has finally come forward to reveal the real spark behind His Airness. Despite what you may have heard, it was not Aristotle or Kubla Khan that inspired Michael. As it turns out, nearly all credit needs to be given to Leroy Smith, the visionary behind the critically acclaimed Get Your Basketball On videos. Watch all four parts of the Leroy Smith saga as he breaks down how he motivated Mike to be the greatest ever without a hint of modesty. You can see the other three videos after the jump and for more on Leroy Smith and his campaign to be recognized by the Basketball Hall of Fame, you can check out his YouTube channel and the GetYourBasketballOn website.
