Michael Jordan Speech VIDEO

michael11 Michael Jordan Speech VIDEO

Michael Jordan’s Hall of Fame Speech was really emotional, but some people feel Michael was slamming people from his past. Read more and see Michael Jordan’s speech video below.

Michael Jordan, 46, was entered into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., on Sept. 11, 2009.

Michael Jeffrey Jordan, the former Chicago Bulls & Washington Wizards guard, delivered an emotional speech.

Jordan now joins the pair of a Dream Team of 1992, the famous and great teammates ‘David Robinson and John Stockton.’ His coaches Jerry Sloan and C. Vivian Stringer enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame.

Michael Jordan was tearful but went on to remind everyone he never forgets a slight by thanking all those who snubbed him over the years:

The coach who cut him from the varsity. “I wanted to make sure you understood: You made a mistake dude.”

Isiah Thomas, who allegedly led a “freeze out” in his first All-Star Game: “I wanted to prove to you, Magic, Larry, George (Gervin), everybody that I deserved (to be there) just as much as anybody else.”

The news media that said he would never win like Isiah, Bird or Magic. “I had to listen to all that, and that put so much wood on the fire that it kept me each and every day trying to get better as a basketball player.

He took a shot at Bulls exec Jerry Krause who Jordan claimed said that organizations, not players, win titles. Krause claims he said players alone don’t win titles.

The reaction to Michael Jordan’s speech was really mixed. Michael Wilbon of The Washington Post, wrote, between those who saw Jordan’s speech as “candid, funny, raw, refreshing and perfectly representative of the ruthlessness with which he played; and those who think one’s Hall of Fame induction speech should be more more deferential, gracious and appropriate…”

What do you guys think of Jordan’s speech?
