By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter"Winning has a price. And leadership has a price. So, I pulled people along when they didn’t want to be pulled. I challenge people when they didn’t want to be challenged. I earned that right because my teammates came after me. They didn’t endure all the things I had to endure.Once you join a team, you live a certain standard that I play the game. I wasn’t to take anything less. Now that means I have to go into you’re ass a little bit, then I did that.US will my teammates, one thing about Michael Jordan was you never asked me to do something they didn’t do.When people see this, they’re going to say, “eh, he wasn’t really a nice guy. He may have been a tyrant.” Well, that’s you because you’ve never won anything. I wanted to win but I wanted them to win and be a part of that, as well.Look, you have to do this. I’m only doing this because it is who I am. That’s how I played the game. That was my mentality. If you don’t want to play that way, don’t play that way." ~Michael Jordan
