SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Michael Jordan, often considered the best player ever, has been enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame.
Jordan cried at the start of his speech Friday night, then entertained the crowd at Springfield's Symphony Hall with stories of how opponents, coaches, and the media challenged him to become of the greats of the game.
The six-time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls and five-time league MVP referred often to his famed competitiveness, saying he'd "do anything to win" and would probably still be on a court somewhere trying to beat someone when he's 50.
Earlier Friday, Jordan's 1992 Olympic teammates, John Stockton and David Robinson, and coaches Jerry Sloan and C. Vivian Stringer were enshrined.
