Prof. Sirkin English 1A 19 April 2010 Words: 1200 The Bumpy Road Towards Successful Michael Jordan was probably one of the most competitive players that ever existed in the NBA. He was always the go to player at the most crucial times during tight basketball games. Jordan was entrusted with game winning shots on more than one occasion and he missed twenty six of them.
