「Thank you very much.Thank you very much.Thank you very much.
I must say on behalf on you - my former teammates,my formar adversaries,and competitors - I want to talk my family for sticking with me for so many years as I chased my dreams of playing basketball. For all of the fans who support the game of basketball - not just Michael Jordan,I thank you for your support. I leave the game in good hands. So many great stars still in the game,so many great stars rising and playing the game. I have passed on the things that Dr.J and some of the great players - Magic Johnson,Larry Bird - have passed on to me,I pass on to these All-Stars here,as well as to the rest of the players in the NBA. I thank you for your support and now I can go home and feel at peace with the game of basketball. 」
