It’s strange to think that in today’s world of 24/7 news coverage and social media, a figure like Michael Jordan (the greatest professional athlete of the 20th century) is still largely considered an enigma. Only recently have people started forming an opinion of the man whose list of nicknames include “G.O.A.T.”, “His Airness,” and “MJ.”
You’ve got to believe that his “man behind the curtain” look is intentional. Is it because of the generally negative attitude that most people have towards him or is it because a lack of public interaction only fuels his popularity?
These are questions I don’t have the answer to. Luckily, what I do have is a boatload of rare photos of MJ from back when he was playing courtesy of redditor /pvtso.
