Michael was better than people give him credit for

In a recent interview with Drink Champs, New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter talked about NBA GOAT Michael Jordan. Michael was a lot better than people give him credit for, Jeter continued as he instantly began complimenting Jordan.

Before digging into MJ’s time in the Minor League, Captain Clutch described the setup of the league.

Before reaching the Major Leagues, you play in rookie ball, Low A, High A, Double A, and Triple-A. From High A to Double-A is where you make the biggest jump after you reach double-A. And if he is capable of playing baseball in Double-A, you are capable of playing in the Major Leagues.

Jeter was questioned about the baseball skills of his good friend Jordan. Yes! was the prompt response from Jeter, who then launched into a discussion about the criticism Jordan faced for quitting the NBA too soon after winning three World Championships. Jordan’s statistics at the lesser level were also frequently below average. Jeter, though, did not think that way.
