Michael Jordan HOF Acceptance Speech

I took the chance to watch Michael Jordan acceptance speech.

It was pretty good, and very inspirational.

The one powerful thing in all of the acceptance speech was the fact that he really gave props to the people that inspired him and the why behind it. I love that he chose David Thompson. David Thompson was a man who conquered and failed, then conquered again.

Michael Jordan was probably my second biggest inspiration growing up as a kid outside of John Elway. I loved his fight, he always had the fight in him to keep pushing on even when things didnt go his way. An underlying thing that helped inspired my competitive nature.

This speech is one of the most memorable in all of the sports world as far as actually having some meat to absorb. It's not just a thank you, and pat on the back kind of things that is so common with Hall of Fame speeches.
