Steve Kerr believes Twitter may have spurred Michael Jordan on to more titles

Published Add your comment

Michael Jordan could not have achieved much more in the NBA - well unless he hadn't opted to retire and pursue a career in baseball.

There's a reason he is considered the greatest of all-time, but one of his former teammates believes he might have won more titles had social media been around during Jordan's playing days.

Steve Kerr, who won three rings with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s, believes Twitter may have spurred MJ on to win more titles due to the slights that would have been thrown around from other players.

That era of basketball was famed for its trash-talking, Jordan had many mammoth battles with the dominant Detroit Pistons and many players were quick to take a shot at the six-time Most Valuable Player.

Despite his dominance, people would continue trying to call out his Airness, and that only would've been intensified if the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram were around.

If anybody knows about Jordan's personality and intensity, then it is Kerr, the Golden State Warriors coach famously got into a fight with shooting guard during practice. And Kerr knows how MJ used to use any slight as motivation, he doesn't need any more.
