Bronzed Heroes – Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan ruined professional basketball for me. When you grow up watching the best ever it is hard to watch anyone else. I loved the way he played the game. He had a lot of talent, but also the drive to keep improving. The statue captures one of Michael’s famous poses. He was by far my favorite pro player, but I am sure that a lot of people can say that.
This statue sits outside of the United Center. I was lucky enough to get a good shot of it yesterday with nobody around. I knew that today would be the day to do it because it usually draws a crowd. While I was at the United Center today I noticed that they sent out a tweet that in a couple of weeks Scottie Pippen will get his own statue. That is great that these two will be in bronze outside of where they brought us so much joy. I will have to add that one when I can.
