Two great ESPN stories

Here’s links to two great ESPN stories.

This is a bit about Bill Simmons’ experience in the Big Easy (New Orleans for those who don’t know that term) covering the NBA’s All-Star celebration. I love ‘nawlins and Simmons did a great job of re-selling the city as a tourist attraction.

This story might even be better. This is an article outlining Michael Jordan’s advice to the NBA. This bit might as well be a blueprint on how to walk the earth as a citizen to be admired. Not for anything special, but how to just be yourself.

Sound, sane words from MJ. Ought to be required reading for every high school senior in the US. Hell, translate it and make it a must-read worldwide for all ages.
