Default Michael Jordan's Attitude

I read an article about Jordan that doesn't get along with his teammates cuz he was a total a$$hole. Even though he was that he still dominated and help the Bulls won 6 NBA titles. lol Jordan gets along with his opponents but most of his teammates hates him. Why is that? I remember him having beef with Will Perdue, I think he had a fight with Steve Kerr and of course called Kwame names. His Wizards teammates was distant to him too. What I also hated about Jordan is that he was cocky. There are a lot of Jordan groupies who still like him even though he was a a$$hole. Shaq's attitude is worse than Jordan's. He's lazy, acts like the GM of his team and trades his teammates if he doesn't like what he sees. Why? Why do you people like superstars who like to treat their teammates like dirt and destroy their confidence?

What he did was not being a leader. Jordan's lucky he had Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Horace Grant, Toni Kukoc and Ron Harper on his team also Phil Jackson as his coach.

First of all, you are an idiot.

Second, Kobe thread it is. Good call.

leader? who else was the leader of the team livingston? Pippen could have easily been replaced by kemp, barkely or drexler. Rodman was only there for the last few. We saw how well grant did on his own. Kukoc and harper where also not there for the firsts few. Maybe you can argue that Phil was important but the rest of the guys could easily be replaced. And yes Jordan is and A@@hole.

The guy who he 'punched' sings his praises today when he has no reason to. What does that say!

I've read that teammates like Pippen MORE than Jordan. They said Jordan wasn't the true leader of the team. It was PIPPEN.

there is a good saying that Barkley or whoever alwys throws around, I dunno the exact quote but basically to be a true great in this game, you HAVE to have that mean streak, the killer instinct, the "i'm the alpha dog, you mess with me i'll kill you" attitude.

Larry Bird had it also. Jordan's not buddy buddy with his teammates because he demands perfection. He probably screams at you if you miss a wide open layup in practice or slacks off on a defensive rotation.

Obviously, if you're the 9th man on an NBA team, you're gonna be better friends with someone like Stephen Jackson, who takse you to strip clubs, shows up to practice lates, probably loans you his porn, then someone like Jordan or Bird, who would give you the devil eye if you are too slow to a loose ball or didn't box out your man.

These threads are stupid, Jordan was overly competitive, EVERYONE knows this. It's what makes him great, he wanted to kill everyone on the court. He wouldn't be the greatest if he had a lazier attitude like Shaq. What do these threads prove? That Jordan wasn't buddy buddy with his teammates? What does tha thave to do with basketball?

Robert De Niro is a very private person, he doesn't go out much, after the director yells cut he jsut goes back to his trailer and studies his lines. So is he somehow not as nice a person as say, Paris Hilton? She's out with everyone and partying every night.

And this will only turn into a Kobe thread if Kobe fans start jumping on the poster's bandwagon and make claims like "Yeah dude Jordan is a jerk man, he's not nice to Kwame Brown like kobe is".

Meaning Kobe fans would turn this into a Kobe thread, not jordan fans, not anyone else.

Well...I love and respect Mike but he did destroy Kwame's confidence. With him playing with Kobe he's playing a lot better than he did with the Wiz. Kwame has been boosting Kobe's confidence.
