Book Review: The Jordan Rules
This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“… If we got to the Finals, Michael would figure out some way to win it. He’s the greatest competitor I’ve ever seen and then he goes to still another level in big games.”
Sam Smith wrote this unauthorized account of Michael Jordan’s dealings with his teammates and coaches during the Bull’s first title season. Supposedly, MJ was sort of a bully with his less-bloodthirsty teammates and was the main authority figure the Bulls players strived to satisfy. Jordan publicly came out and denied the book’s accounts when it was first released in 1992, making it a must-read going off of that alone. I’ll leave it up to the reader to decide what to believe or not believe from the Jordan Rules, but an entertaining piece of work nonetheless.
