2020: The Year Professional Athletes Fully Embraced Their Freedom Of Speech

Few athletes have ever had a bigger voice than Michael Jordan. His, no doubt, still haunts opponents yet commands respect. MJ’s voice is so valuable that in the 38 years since he hit the game-winning shot against Georgetown to capture the 1982 NCAA Title for the North Carolina Tar Heels, he’s been sought after to influence your purchases of everything from shoes and underwear to restaurants and car dealerships.

Zoom Fatigue? Here’s How To Avoid Becoming Lunch For The Competition

In fact, it’s been so long since I watched sports, I will need to retrain my fingers to find ESPN on the TV remote.
