This was MJ's response.Jaylen is awesome. Such a great character and the skills are catching up to his character as well. Rooting for guys like him is what makes sports fun for me.
Meanwhile, probably worth a separate thread but god forbid a guy like MJ step up and join in stuff like this. All we have are athletes who post some thoughts and prayers on twitter but don’t do much else. Guys like Jaylen who walk the walk are too few and far between.
Just imagine if you’d have guys with greater visibility and following like MJ leading the charge as well. LeBron, to his credit, seems to be more active on this front. But I really wish MJ would step up for once here. When he talks, people listen, as we just saw with that documentary. This goes the same for famous white athletes as well.
Only took 25 years for MJ to sort of become a caring human and not a logo. Great!
Nike took a stand first, so it was ok for MJ to speak outOnly took 25 years for MJ to sort of become a caring human and not a logo. Great!
Kareem, Jalen, and so many others don't need this guy's "static"... when he's all in... he'll let us know, or maybe Nike will.
I vote for forever.I love Jaylen so much. I'm so happy he's going to be a Celtic for a long, long time.
Not just the awareness, I had no idea he could physically make that pass. The list of non-PGs who can consistently thrown a long distance bounce pass like that is very small, it was like watching Kemba thrown down a windmill dunk.
