Big Names In Basketball

There are many things that people must do, despite what is currently going on in their personal life. The person may be dealing with divorce, illness, or even the death of a family member, yet they still have to go to work or take care of children. There is a former NBA player that most fans consider to be the best player ever in professional basketball. The former playerís name is Michael Jordan, and he was excellent on offense and defense. Michael Jordan played for the Chicago Bulls, and he helped the Bulls to win six titles.

Unfortunately, despite his talent, things werenít always great for Michael Jordan. Along with fame and fortune comes heartbreak, just like for everyone else. In 1995, Michael and the Bulls played the season of a lifetime, and were headed to the playoffs once again. But in the middle of everything, something happened that no one had ever expected. Michael Jordanís dad was shot and killed in his home in North Carolina. Of course this was devastating for Jordan, and he even felt that he couldnít go on and participate in the playoffs. Miraculously, just when Michael had just about given up, he heard a voice from his father, telling him that he was still with him, no matter what. This made Michael break down in tears, ultimately deciding to go out and win the championship for his dadóand win the championship, he did.

Many of us think that we have problems in our lives that cause us to be unable to go on, but just imagine what NBA players must go through. They have to quickly get themselves together, no matter what happens in their personal lives that affects them in a major way. They have fans and team member who are counting on them, and donít want to be let down. One thing that people need to realize, though, is that just because they are professional basketball players, doesnít mean that they arenít human. NBA players are people, too, and they have feelings and emotions, just like everyone else, and should be allowed an adequate amount of time to mourn the death of a loved one.
