the real question is when does the freekish talent show up on the track? when does a michael jordan prefer track over basketball.
I btw always asked myself, which would have been Michael Jordans best event?
I remember that he stood not that much out in terms of stand still jumping ability, what we do remember had always been some kind of jump-speed athletism (including his unmatched body control of course)
Henry Lauterbach from GDR formerly had been able to jump 2,30m high combined with 8,35m longjump. I guess Michael Jordan would have been able to match these numbers in the 80ies.
Or would he have been the complete decathlete (he at least would not have lost focus over the two days)?
