Jordan’s Competiveness

Quote from Bill Simmon’s “Book of Basketball” on Michael Jordan:

“He soaked teammates in poker on team flights so brutally that coaches warned rookies to stay away. He once lost to teammate Rod Higgins in Ping-Pong, bought a table and became the best player on the team. He dunked on Utah’s John Stockton once, heard Utah owner Larry Miller scream, "Why don’t you pick on someone your own size?" then dunked on center Mel Turpin and hissed at Miller afterward, "He big enough for you?”
