I'm not crazy about birthdays, skipped my high school 10-year reunion, almost forgot about my 10-year anniversary with my wife but I didn't forget that 10 years ago today was Michael Jordan's last game in the NBA! How could I forget something of such importance?
The 40-year-old GOAT finished with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists in 24 minutes against Allen Iverson and the 76ers but nobody really cared about his stat line or the Wizards losing another game. Everybody was there to cheer MJ when he was on the floor and to boo him when he wanted to rest -- even when the Wiz were losing by 21 points in the 4th quarter.
"WE WANT MIKE! WE WANT MIKE!"
"The game didn't merit me going back in,'' Jordan said. "Obviously, they wanted to see me make a couple of baskets. That
was very, very respectful.''
