Michael Jordan Hall of Fame Speech

Jordan delivers a candid, heartfelt speech on one of the biggest nights in his illustrious career. Watch:

The 6-time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls and five-time league most valuable player referred often to his famed competitiveness, saying he’d “do anything to win” and would probably still be on a court somewhere trying to beat someone when he’s 50.

“One day you might look up and see me playing a game at 50,” he said. “Don’t laugh. Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.”

No one should ever doubt MJ’s greatness! Congrats Mike!
