Imagine what would have happened to all the fans who love and adore Jordan if he had not shifted to playing basketball? Jordan's first love was baseball but he did play football and basketball. However, he only started loving the game after his older brother continuously beat him in one-on-one games. This urged Jordan to try and become a better player than his brother.
