Michael Jordan was inspired by singer Anita Baker!
We all have inspirations in life and Michael Jordan was no different. Jordan was inspired by R&B singer Anita Baker. He used her music in Space Jam and also prepare for a game. Former NBA striker Roshown McLeod recalls that Jordan “sang her music to the boys when he played”.
He says MJ’s favorite song was “Giving You The Best That I Got” and he sang it to Jerry Stackhouse while earning 48 points. Before MJ “The Shot” hit Craig Ehlo, he wrote to Anita Baker that she had made him ready to play in the locker room. He says he blew up his favorite song “Giving You The Best That I Got” before the game.
