Michael Jordan RumorsAll NBA Players
Who is the best dunker you have ever seen? Julius Erving: I’ll tell you; Zach has put on a show the last couple of years. He has to get kudos. I don’t know if the surprise factor and the timing coordination dunks that he does are as impactful as what Vince Carter brought to the scene when he did a few things that hadn’t been seen before. I think with Connie Hawkins, myself, Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins, Clyde Drexler, there’s a lineage there, and I think Vince shook it up a little bit there with a couple of dunks there. I’m gonna let him reside in that spot right there.
Anthony, who endorses Jordan’s Jumpman shoe and clothing line, was proud to hear the words from the adored fellow African-American icon who is known for staying quiet on social and racial issues. “I just read the statement before I came here. That’s big. That’s MJ. That’s Michael Jordan,” Anthony said. “As African-Americans, that’s who we look up to. He has a great voice with a great platform. I’m just glad that he came out now and he used it at this time with everything going on.”
Marc J. Spears: Carmelo Anthony told The Undefeated on Michael Jordan’s $2 million pledge: “That’s big. Thats’s MJ. That’s Michael Jordan. As African-Americans, that’s who we look up to. He’s a great voice with a great platform. I’m just glad that he came out now and he used it at this time with everything going on.”
Michael Jordan: “I was raised by parents who taught me to love and respect people regardless of their race or background, so I am saddened and frustrated by the divisive rhetoric and racial tensions that seem to be getting worse as of late. I know this country is better than that, and I can no longer stay silent. We need to find solutions that ensure people of color receive fair and equal treatment AND that police officers – who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all – are respected and supported.
Michael Jordan: “Over the past three decades I have seen up close the dedication of the law enforcement officers who protect me and my family. I have the greatest respect for their sacrifice and service. I also recognize that for many people of color their experiences with law enforcement have been different than mine. I have decided to speak out in the hope that we can come together as Americans, and through peaceful dialogue and education, achieve constructive change. To support that effort, I am making contributions of $1 million each to two organizations, the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.”
Ramona Shelburne: I let @Carmelo Anthony read the NBA’s statements about moving the ASG from Charlotte before asking for his reaction: “Aside from all the politics, I feel bad for MJ [Michael Jordan] because I knew what that was going to do for the city of Charlotte. It was definitely going to boost everything. For him being able to bring All Star weekend to Charlotte. I feel bad for him and for the NBA, too. We as players didn’t think it was going to get to this. It’s unfortunate.”
