About this deal

The book that I read was For the Love of the Game: My Story by Micheal Jordan himself. This story is told by one of the greatest of all-time and how he became a legend. He begins the story with how he started his professional career. He reflected on his college career and what he went through while he was at North Carolina. He explains how all the attention he was getting from reporters did not change his play style. This is a story that truly shows a Great in the making.

The flu game process was an interesting read where even more was going on and he was basically chugging coffee just to survive. For 13 brilliant seasons Michael Jordan danced the dance of greatness across hardwood floors of basketball arenas from New York to Los Angeles to Barcelona and Paris. With a warrior's heart and an artist's grace, Jordan long ago transcended the sport to become one of the 20th century's global icons.

I was amazed by Jordan’s relentlessness as a competitor. He was truly an assassin on the basketball court. If there was any small chance....000001% chance that you would challenge Jordan’s ability to win or his status as the best, you would be sought out, humiliated, defeated and your reputation stomped on. Michael would then give a great press conference interview after the game to make you look like his inferior in every way. Teammates experienced a mix of awe and fear as he demanded absolute perfection, even in the most mundane practice situations. MJ was the perfect mix of other-worldly athleticism, iron-hard competitiveness, and savvy charisma. Una obra apasionante de Mr. Lazenby que, con una documentación brutal sobre el tema, nos comparte toda la complejidad de la personalidad, ideología, hechos y momentos que hicieron de "Su Majestad" uno de los atletas más grande de la historia del deporte y del marketing mundial.

On the court, his almost mythic flair for the spectacular prompted former Los Angeles Laker superstar Magic Johnson to say simply, "There's Michael, then there's all the rest of us." La obra podrá parecer extensa (unas 700 y pico de páginas), pero no se sienten para nada. La forma de escribir del autor es tan certera pero, a la vez, tan amena que el libro se te va muy rápido. Me gustó que no hiciera énfasis en lo que está documentado a nivel de cancha (cosas que puedes ver en Youtube, o en su documental "The Last Dance"), sino que nos presentan los sucesos "tras bambalinas" que un aficionado de a pie (como yo) nunca supimos; y que, en efecto, nos da una buena idea de todo lo que podría rondar por la cabeza de Michael Jordan.
