Adam & Aaron celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Jordan's (1984) arrival in the National Basketball Association. This episode covers:
- Sam Smith's book: There is No Next: NBA Legends on the Legacy of Michael Jordan
In another special episode, we are joined by Bulls.com columnist, New York Times best-selling author (The Jordan Rules) and former podcast guest, Sam Smith. We deep dive into a great discussion of Michael Jordan's rookie NBA season (1984-85) and the Chicago Bulls franchise itself. We ask Sam all about his new book, which is part oral history / part narrative. Sam discussed MJ with an incredible cast of luminaries, including Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Phil Jackson, Isiah Thomas, Dominique Wilkins, President Obama and many more.
Thanks to (the appropriately named) 'Johnny Kilroy' for submitting a listener question. You'll hear Sam's answer within this episode.
