In this day and age, we often listen to on the television and media that he or she is the “Michael Jordan” of this or that.  It provides everyone a belief that that earlier athlete was the greatest at that sport. That leads me to explain the various Michael Jordan movie documentaries that have been released since he entered the NBA in 1984.

First of all, I would like to offer you a description to the best of my know-how of who Michael Jordan is. He was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1963. But he was raised in Wilmington, North Carolina. Through his child years and adolescent days, like the video – “Come Fly With Me”  – Jordan’s first video – he clarifies the every day battles on the basketball court which he would have with his brother Larry. One of the most famous failures in the history of sport that propelled Jordan to be the ideal basketball legend of all time was when he was cut in the Varsity Basketball team. Can you even think that! Jordan getting cut on any team is incredible.

That event is which would fuel Jordan and ignite a spark in him to become the exceptional basketball player he was.  We hear it all the time, you only succeed when you fail. One of the Michael Jordan movie advertisements was a Nike advertisement when he said he fails and fails all the time. That is why he Succeeds.

The 2nd documentary is known as Michael Jordan’s playground. It starts off with a teenager attempting to make the basketball team in high school. But at some point he is not selected. He walks to the nearby basketball court and attempts to figure out why he wasn’t good enough. Then Michael Jordan appears. So essentially Jordan is telling the kid not to quit. If he doesn’t make it this year, working even harder to make the team next twelve months.  Essentially this is a Michael Jordan highlight reel of his earlier years in the NBA.

By the 1988 NBA year – Jordan won both the MVP and Defensive Player of the year award. He still wasn’t considered great yet because he had not won a title yet. Those years just before he won the championship, his main test was the Detroit Pistons. For 3 years straight the Bulls would lose to the Pistons in the Playoffs.  There have been critics stating that a scoring champion could not be a NBA winner as well. Jordan would get quite cross with this mindset and need to show everyone wrong.

He did so by winning his first NBA title in 1991 when they swept the Detroit Pistons in the Playoffs 4 games to 0. They then topped the Los Angeles Lakers – led by hall of famer – Magic Johnson, in 5 games. Jordan was announced the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player.

There have been many more Michael Jordan movie documentaries made since 1991 which chronicles his rise to the upper echelons of the NBA to the point where he is now regarded as the best basketball player ever.
