A few weeks ago, I was flipping channels in time to see Michael Jordan’s induction speech for the Basketball Hall of Fame. You all know me enough by now to now that I bleed Carolina Blue. I defend the colors. I am obsessed with it’s history. But I will be the first to say this….Michael, you were a jerk. “The boy” and I often watch old clips of “His Airness” so he can see the amazing gifts and abilities of the greatest player to ever play. I’m thankful that “the boy” wasn’t watching the night I stumbled across MJ’s speech. I would have had some “splaining to do”. Enter “The Admiral”, David Robinson…..
If I need a video clip of what it means to reach the top and never forget who and what got you there, this is it. This is the complete opposite of MJ’s speech. This is a man that has never apologized for his faith or his love for his family. Watch this clip (if you don’t have time, watch the beginning for what he says to his family and forward it to the 6:41 mark to hear the end). Thank you David Robinson. You are in a class by yourself.
By the way, all was not lost. Former Tar Heel Larry Brown was on stage to represent the Carolina Blue during David’s Speech.
