Every generation has a player that they reference as a”The Greatest of All Time.” Hell, every sport can claim their “greatest.” It takes a resume that is like no other, a body of work that is tough to rival.

RIVAL. Most teams and athletes have them. Someone to push you further, to make you compete and fight for everything. Michael Jordan had no rival. There was no one, no peer, to push him further. If anything, he had to push himself to the limit.

Growing up in the 80′s and 90′s, Michael Jordan was everything. If you weren’t watching him play you saw him on commercials. He even hosted Saturday Night Live, and had to look into a mirror while saying, “I’m good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.” I will never forget that episode. Jordan had a tough time getting through that line, his infectious smile almost turned into uncontrollable laughter.

Jordan had to fight his way to the top, overcoming ledgends like Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and Isaiah Thomas before reaching his first NBA Title. It wouldn’t take Michael Jordan long before one turned into six. Two separate three-peats cemented a legacy and career that has not been rivaled since.

In this first installment of The Back In The Day Video Play, we feature Michael Jordan, The Greatest of All Time.
