Funny thing. I didn't get to see the speech live myself, but there seemed to be more than one "colomnist" that took acception to MJ's speech. Saying he couldn't just be gracious and accept, but had to put in some "old wounds" like talking about his problems with van gundy and his old high school coach for not playing him. Then failing to recognize anyone else on his teams, except a sentence on Pippen. Guess his point was he did it all in spite of everyone.
