There was a stark difference between the two acceptance speeches.  As I listened to the two speeches, all I could think of was the old commercial catchphrase, “Like Mike… If I could be like Mike.”  Unfortunately, in this instance, Mike was the last person anyone should aspire to be like.  This was definitely not a Michael Jordan highlight.  Jordan’s Speech was self-centered, indulgent, arrogant, and at times embarrassing.  In contrast, David Robinson rose to the occasion and made a brief, inspiring, encouraging speech (see his speech here) that made his family, his team, and his friends proud.
