For everyone that like's Mike.


APRIL 6, 1981

This might not seem like an important date in history, but I found something today that changed my mind.

This is the day that Mike got his first real taste of the spotlight.

This was an ad McDonalds ran in the April 6th, 1981 issue of the Sports Illustrated for the 1981 High School Basketball All-American Team which also featured Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullen.

For a young country boy from North Carolina this must of been a proud moment in his life.

Little did Mike, or anyone else know at the time, but this was very beginning of something huge, something gigantic, something larger then life.

Looking back over 27 years it's difficult to really understand this magnitude of Mike's impact on the world we live in.

Thanks for all the memories Mike!
