Is this excellent retrospective is about the same man who owns the Hornets? (web)
14 September 2014 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

Unfortunately, yes: MJ the owner has the title of worst NBA team ever (in 2012, 10% of wins) but MJ the player is still (and for a long time I think) member of the best winning team (in 1996 with 72 wins). Anyway, MJ will always be my favorite player in my favorite sport!

I really take the rebound in march 1991 with new magazines and a Bulls-Spurs game. Sure, as they begun a six titles trip, those 8 years are just incredible memories of night games live, VHS tapes, bedroom plays and playground match! This documentary packs all his history and his best moves.

It's maybe a bit too centered about his Airness because his Jordanairies and Phil Jackson were also decisive in winning and the video is too short (less than hour). Thus, if his portrayal is superficial, however it says it all about MJ: a competitor, a killer, a hard-working athlete, a well-educated son, a funny man and always there for kids! That's why we miss NBA as today stars have just bad attitude, tattoos and not talent!
