One of the Instagram handles posted a reel of Jordan talking about what it takes to be successful. NBA great said how he missed 900 shots and lost 300 games in his career.

Back in 2020, Morgan expressed his admiration of the Charlotte Hornets owner while replying to a tweet with a small video clip of Jordan. The former Daily Mail editor said, “This is the greatest two minutes of advice anyone could ever watch if they want to understand what it takes to be a champion like Michael Jordan. Incredible,” replying to a tweet.

Notably, Morgan even changed his stance on Naomi Osaka when she revealed she drew inspiration from Michael Jordan. Earlier, Morgan slammed the tennis sensation for her break from tennis. However, the moment Osaka shared her inspiration was Jordan to continue during a game when she was injured, Morgan praised the tennis star. Osaka drew her inspiration from NBA great playing and scoring 38 points despite suffering from food poisoning in an NBA final 5 in 1997 against Utah Jazz.
