NBA Classic Theater: Michael Jordan’s Defense

By: Kels Dayton

His Airness is always being lauded for his other-worldly offensive ability, but Jordan is rarely recognized for just how great a defensive player he was as well. MJ won the Defensive Player of the Year Award seven times in his career, and it was no fluke. Jordan hounded you on that end of the court, treating ballhandlers like thieves who had stolen what was rightfully his. This video sheds some light on Michael’s defensive and passing abilities, which each added to the wonderful legend that was his game. Kids, take notice. Just another reason why there will NEVER, EVER, EVER be another Mike.
