With the NBA on it’s single-day hiatus following the 2013 All-Star Weekend, NBA TV ran a series of interviews that included a one-on-one sit-down between Ahmad Rashad and Michael Jordan, delving into all topics.
Jordan was mostly answering questions that we’ve heard answered in the past, about this game and that, what he was feeling, what he was thinking, how he prepared, how he compares himself to this guy or that, but it was still as captivating as the first time around.
In Ahmad Rashad, a man whose broadcasting career exploded by the time Michael Jordan was reaching his heights, we had an interviewer who has known the man for years and knew just how to lead Jordan down certain paths toward certain stories.
In the end, new information about Jordan was really at a minimum, but the same insightful look back into the past was there every step of the way.
Even though there were no real breakthroughs into the question of who this man really is at his core, there were some moments and observations to take away from the hour-long interview.
