“Talent counts.. But Talent without effort may end up with nothing…”
Michael Jordon could be considered as one of the top NBA stars ever in the history. No one could ever doubt his talent and ability. However, who knows that he was actually rejected by his university basketball team in his sophomore year for being too short (He was 1.80m at that time.. )
Not giving up, he trained hard and proved his game in the junior squad and progress into the main squad. Needless to say, the career achievement was there to see. Despite being a top scorer for the team, he contributes to the defensive side of the game. He was named NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 1988 and a 9-time NBA All Defensive First Team.
