Michael Jordan wasn’t a perfectionist; he was an improvisationist. That’s why he was hard to stop.
A perfectionist knows exactly what he’s going to do. He plans his work and works his plan. The only problem is that because he knows, the defender knows, too.
It’s easy to anticipate what a perfectionist is going to do. He’s predictable.
But no one knew what Michael was going to do, because he didn’t know himself.
