          The reason why i liked the book Michael Jordan because it expires kids to play basketball. Another reason why i liked it because i learned that he went to unc and got drafted his second year at unc. last reason that i like this book because he has got cut from his virtuosity school team because he wasn't good enough so he made a choice to work back up to that starter possession and he got it.
