The way Jordan's game reacted to criticism and challenges, if there was social media back then, then it would be a source of constant fire. I can only imagine.
It's the main thing that makes him the GOAT to me, that intense focused to shut people up.
Which is also something that I'm seeing a bit in Lebron, though he's had bad situations like the 2011 Finals. That's in the past though.

Jordan was not a hot head. A hot head was someone like Rasheed Wallace. Someone who lets their emotions get the better of him. When Jordan got angered, it just fed an intense focus in the game. An aggressive awareness, with his game being in complete control.
