Dear MJ:

When you came into the league (NBA) in 1984 I was seven years old. My big focus was getting to know my new classmates and learning how to read small books with a few words in a big font on each page.

It was Saturday afternoon.  Less than three days ago.  A slight overcast watched from a distance. My brother and I had just finished playing two games of one-on-one. He had just beaten me twice. After walking together to get some water, we sat on the steel criss-cross patterned, green bench, just to the side of […]
