Facing Michael Jordan: Players Recall the Greatest Basketball Player Who Ever Lived

Kent MCDILL (With) Sean Deveney (Editor)


Relive the magic of the greatest player to ever step on the court.

"Air Jordan," "His Airness," "MJ."

Whatever you call him, Michael Jeffrey Jordan can be considered one of the greatest basketball players of all-time. During his career, Jordan won six NBA championships and was a 14-time All-Star, five-time NBA MVP, and six-time NBA Finals MVP. To say Jordan was dominant during his career would be a severe understatement.

Now for the first time ever, hear stories from opponents, teammates, and coaches about what it was like to go against MJ in Facing Michael Jordan. You will hear stories from such All-Stars as:

Charles Barkley
Dennis Rodman
Robert Parish
Terry Porter
And many more

From the moment Jordan stepped onto the court, he dominated the game of basketball. No matter who comes around today or tomorrow, Jordan's name and the number 23 will resonate with basketball fans for all eternity.
