The Jordan era: the Wilmington promise or the birth of a myth

“Even Michael Jordan was fired from his high school basketball team. “ This claim comes up regularly to point out that even the greatest player of all time can be snubbed at some point in his life. Two moments engraved this fact in the collective consciousness of the fans. First, the very first documentary dedicated to Jordan, Come Fly With Me (1989), where from the fifth minute, a certain Fred Lynch, presented as his coach at the time, affirms: “Yeah, I’m the coach who sidelined Michael. He was a good player but not enough to contribute to our main team. “ Twenty years later, Jordan himself reinforced the idea during his introductory Hall of Fame speech. “You made a mistake, man! “ then affirms “His Airness”, more proud than ever.
