Michael Jordan - Cut From His High School Team

brother deloris north varsity

Michael Jeffrey Jordan was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1963. He was the youngest of four boys born to James and Deloris Jordan. James Jordan was the son of a share cropper from rural North Carolina, and he was in Brooklyn to attend a school that trained employees of General Electric. Jordan's mother, Deloris, was a homemaker until her children were old enough to attend school, and then she became a bank clerk.

When Jordan was about seven years old, in 1970, his family moved to Wilmington, North Carolina, the town he would later consider to be his hometown. He began playing basketball at an early age, often with his older

Michael Jordan

brother Larry. "When I was younger," Jordan said on his Web site, "my motivation came from wanting to beat my brother. This inspired my extremely competitive nature."

As a freshman in high school, Jordan joined his school basketball team. It was on his high school team that Jordan chose the jersey number he was later to make famous as a pro, number 23. When later asked why he chose that number, he replied to the Associated Press, "I wanted to wear No. 45 in high school, but my older brother (Larry) wore that number. So I decided to go with half of 45, which is actually 22½." Jordan at first had trouble standing out on the school team. In fact, only a year after joining the team, as a tenth grader, he was cut from the varsity team. But this only pushed him to work harder at perfecting his game. As he later said on his Web site, "I think that not making the Varsity team drove me to really work at my game, and also taught me that if you set goals, and work hard to achieve them—the hard work can pay off."

By far the greatest to ever play or will ever play the game of basketball....As you can tell getting cut doesnt always mean "give up you wont make it" and Michael is a fine example of this!

u cant let other people define who u are, let others compromise u n tell u u cant play ball

i was cut from my JV b ball team as a freshman, played sparringly in 8th grade, I cried like a baby for a whole month after that and didnt know how to go on not being a basketball player. Eventually i stopped being a lil punk and got over it. I knew what talent waited inside me ready to ignite, so i elevated my game over the summer to a point that far surpassed any level the other guys that made the basketball team were at, then i kept working and getting better and better and better. My family moved that summer to a different part of town, so i went to a school that was in the same district and area of my old school, I tried out for their basketball team, a team more respected than my prior team, and made it with ease. I later was promoted to varsity halfway through the year, just in time to play my school last year.......... In this game i let loose all my bent up anger and talent and completely stunned them by scoring and leading my team with 25 points and grabbing ten rebounds, more points and rebounds that i had ever scored in a b ball game up to that point in my life. We won the by ten and demolished them, we also won the district title. I dont know if i mention this but i got cut from jv and i had just beaten the VARSITY team baby!!!! and my life has really become great from this point. I went from a b-c student to straight A, became a ladies man, and accomplished my dreams. i just finished my senior year and have recieved offers to play ball at division one colleges, but will attend UCLA on an academic scholarship.

In case u have not comprehended the point yet i just wanted everyone out their who has ever felt pain and dissapointment to know to never give up, anything is truly imposssible when u truly have faith in ur abilities

thank you for taking the time to read my post

GOD bless all and good luck

I have almost the same story as Michael Jordan.

I have been playing basketball for almost 15 years know.

I have been working so hard to make each one of my teams.

I have ask my brother to come and play games with me.

And he has beat me every time i have played against him.

o work harder and harder every day to be able to beat him i can touch rim now 10Ft.

I did not make my high school team but i am confident to make the team my junior year.

I have been told that i suck at basketball.

I have been told that it will never happen so stop trying.

I have been told that i will fail at everything i do.

But i take all of that negeiteve energy at it makes me want to practice so hard to where i throw up.

On the court.


From Aaron Thomas i eat drink and sleep and breathe basketball

i have hart for basketball and i will not stop in my path way to glory. No matter what it takes.

I recently got cut from the 8th grade basketball team. That was devestating for me i remeber going home crying because basketball is my life i want to play in the NBA when i grow up. Thats my dream. The thing that makes me angery the most is that i worked harder than all the guys who made the team. Since you being my favorite player of all time i remebered that you got cut to and if you didn't get cut from the 8th grade team i wouldn't play basketball ever again. i take this as motivation and im going to work harder than before and try to make the high scool team as a freshman.

Hey Mike you are my favorite player of all time and I respect you 100%. I was just cut from my 7th Grade basketball team. Everyone says I should have made it but it doesn't fill that gaping hole in my heart from not making it. I cried some when I got home. I know you were cut from your varsity team as a freshmen. How did you get over it. When other kids you know and know you are better than were playing on the team. Any advice on how I can get better and can get over it. You are a huge role model to me and I need your help.

i made the 7th grade middle school team and got cut by my jv coach and varsity coach.I worked so hard for it and got cut. All of my friends new i should have made it and theres nothing i could do.So i came into high school ready for tryouts. 2 weeks before i quit and stoped going to the open gyms. I thought what are the chances of me making the team? so i fight through it and decided to go out with everything i had and i made the team. i was more dedicated than everybody but now the problem is my coach doesnt play me. I work so hard during practice and get no time. i dont do drugs or drink or skip practice. I just dont know y he put me on the team if he aint going to use me

Today I had my varsity tryouts and at the end of the practice the coach asked me if I could talk with him privately. He told me that I would get cut from the varsity tryout and go on to be a JV player. I was in the same situation as Michael because I am also a sophomore in high school. After finding this quote from THE Michael Jordan, I have been so inspired to do my best to get into varsity next year. So thank you Michael Jordan, sir, because you are my inspiration.

It goes to show that we all are a complex composition of events over which we have little control. Had MJ not been cut from his high school team would he have been the same player? We will of course never know. It is certainly the ultimate revenge fantasy of any highschool player. To use the trauma of such rejection that many of us have faced, namely being cut, and channeling it into such an intensely motivating force is truly inspiring. This force was evidently so great and to the extent that he molded himself into the greatest basketball player that has ever walked the face of the earth! The writers at Marvel Comics would have had a difficult time creating a more far-fetched character.

well, i havent been cut. but i have been told that i would never be good at basketball. however; that was in eigth grade. i will admit that i was pretty bad my eigth grade year but now im a sophmore and unfortunatly didnt make varsity. but im a starter just like last year when i was a freshman. you see people told me that i would never be a starter, well three weeks after basketball season had started i took over the my starting position. and i finished the year of averaging 9 to 10 points a game as a center. im only 6' but thank goodness im not done growing yet. hey i can dunk now on a 10ft. goal, last year i couldnt dunk i could only touch the rim on a 10ft. goal. last year i came to the gym monday thru friday for at least two and a half hours a day and i hit the weight room two days of the week. Now i have a new coach this year and like i said he put me on jv again but he said that i could have choosen to be on varstity if i wanted to be cause of how good i had gotten. even after knowing that i told him that i wanted to play jv at least one more year so i could develope more. he said,"alton i think your disision was a good one because on jv im gonna play you pretty much the entire game". so i was excited that i was getting to play just about the whole game every game. And all of this was because of Michael Jordan, he is my inspiration to play ball. when i get out of high school if i dont go to college on a scholership i will do my best to walk on. and i if i am good enough i will hope fully be drafted into the NBA. its my dream job.

For 8 years, I played lacrosse on a lacrosse club and scored at least two goals per game. The coach of the club then became the coach of the high school team. I knew the coach didn't like me, so I worked as hard as I possibly could and pushed myself. I considered myself one of the best of the team who was trying out. I could actually run, catch, throw, and shoot the ball, unlike most of the others. I am pretty little compared to the others, but that just makes me a better player. When she called a group of girls who I knew didn't have the skill level anywhere near mine with my name last, I was shocked. She told us that we should come to practices or manage the team because we weren't good enough to play. I was shocked that I was cut. When my best friend called me up, she was so excited to be on the team. She had never done lacrosse before. I don't need to practice. I just need the coach to like me. Thanks for reading. I'm sorry it was so long, but I needed to vent.

Hey Michael,
My dream since i was in kindergarten was to be a basketball player. I played when i was little but it was all fun for me back then. I started playing for real in 8th grade, i didnt make my middle school team. Then highschool came around and i made the freshman team. Then next year i made the JV team. But i cant make varsity. The varsity coach told me im too short, he wants someone tall to play the point guard position. I'm 5'10 but ive had people who played the varsity level say that i can easily make it. I dont know what to do now...im a junior and its almost the end of the year. Next year is my last chance to play but what if i dont make it? Its gonna kill me inside. I read your quote at the end of this article and i followed it after i didnt make my middle school team but now im in a slump. I still want to play, i practice everyday for 5 hours. And on saturday i practice hardcore the whole day. Sunday i rest. My JV and freshman coach say i have one of the best shots they have ever seen in highschool. They told me i have Steve Nash tendencies and that i have court vision just like him. I have a great first step, not the greatest crossover, im more crafty. Anyways...i know i shouldnt give up, but how things look right now with me being a senior and not having another school to go to without causing family problems. Times almost up on getting a scolarship. I wont give up though, i may not be in the draft, but ill be in the NBA. Like you said, "if you set goals, and work hard to achieve them—the hard work can pay off"

If you get cut from your high school JV team, you probably should give up. MJ wasn't cut from the team all together, he just didn't make JV as a sophomore. Most sophomores are on JV anyway. He was still the best player on his JV team.
