Individual Success Comes From Team Success

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.”- Michael Jordan

The greatest basketball player to ever play the game knows a little something about teamwork. Even though Jordan’s personal statistics prove he was the best player of all time, he would not have been nearly as successful without his teammates.

Michael Jordan is not only the best basketball players of all time, but some credit him with being the greatest athlete to ever live. His devotion and skill has made his name both historical and admirable within the sports world. Jordan still thrives today through his partnership with Nike and his ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats. But, Michael Jordan could not have done it alone.

team success factors - quotes from real winners

Jordan played alongside Dennis Rodman, Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, and 41 other players for at least one season during his NBA Championship winning years. Jordan won the NBA Championship six times with the Chicago Bulls and was the NBA Finals MVP every time. He was also named the NBA Most Valuable Player five times among many other prestigious awards, won two Olympic gold medals and was apart of The Dream Team in the 1992 Barcelona games.

Sports, like any major operation, requires effective teamwork for team success. Basketball is played with five men on the court for each team, and those players need to work together in order to win a game. Obviously individual talent plays a factor within team success as part of any overall sport, but (like Jordan believed) working together is a major team success factor that wins championships.
