What It Was Like To Guard Michael Jordan
Craig Ehlo talks about guarding Jordan and it's a really natural, genuine and likeable story. Well worth reading, even if you have MJ fatigue (impossible!). He, of course, talks about The Shot, college kids re-enacting it to annoy him, a handful of times he managed to stop Jordan, etc.
He was never a bad talker or too arrogant, but it was just like what Jason [Williams] said: He'd tell you. He only did that to me one time, from what I remember. It was his 69-point game, and things were going so well for him that I guess he just went for it. We were running up the court side-by-side and he told me: "Listen man, I'm hitting everything, so I'm gonna tell you what I'm gonna do this time and see if you can stop it. You know you can't stop it. You know you can't stop this. You can't guard me.Full story at Deadspin
