One thing that’s always great to see is a legend from one type of sport showing love for another legend from a different sport. The latest example of this is Michael Jordan’s appreciation for Tiger Woods who has just gone through an incredible performance at the Masters last weekend.
At the age of 38, this was the first time that Tiger Woods has put on the green jacket since 2005, it’s his fifth time overall in his career. It’s an incredible achievement for Woods at his age and the long wait since his last Masters win 14 years ago.
In a recent interview with The Athletic's David Aldridge, NBA legend, Michael Jordan described Tiger's latest achievement as "the greatest comeback I’ve ever seen.”
“I took two years off to play baseball, but nothing like that,” Jordan told Aldridge. “I’m pretty sure he questioned himself, whether he could get it back, and he had to put a lot of work in. But he took it head-on. He had to change his game; he had to change his perspective a little bit. To me, it was the greatest comeback I’ve ever seen.”
It's an incredible compliment from arguably the most legendary athlete of the world and something that I’m sure Tiger Woods would appreciate.
Along with MJ, other sporting stars showed their support for Woods after his achievement including Serena Williams and Kobe Bryant along with a sneaker tribute from Chris Paul.
