“For years, you know you find yourself doing things for them (public) trying to please them. When you’re out in the public, they come up, wanna meet, greet, say hello, sign autographs. But I want them to understand, this is my time. This is not your time, this is my time now.” Even today, fans always rush up to athletes or their favorite celebrities as it could be something that is unavoidable when you’re famous.

But Michael Jordan, it was a whole other level of fame. This man was like a god amongst men during his playing days and in fact is still looked at the same way. Him along with Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman made the greatest roster of all time. These three men were the biggest reason the Bulls were as dominant as they were.
