Speaking of Heroes

The name Jordan is one of the best know surnames, not just in sports, thanks to the now legendary exploits of former professional basketballer, Michael Jordan. Throughout the late 80s and 90s, basketball and in particular the NBA was huge. It was shown on free-to-air TV here in Australia, first on ABC then on Channel 10, with a massive following of the NBA all around the world. Basketball was the only team sport I ever played, so it was natural that I was a huge fan of his airness. No matter who you speak to, anyone remotely interesting basketball had a deep admiration for his skills, the results he achieved and his mystique. I took this photo at a private party recently, and the jersey seemed to conjure up fond memories for anyone that noticed it. Kobe, Lebron and Dwyane have all been touted as “the next Michael Jordan” but so far, none have attracted the the same accolades. Will there be another? Here’s hoping.
