This was a huge disappointment to Michael and he greatly considered giving up on basketball completely. Thanks to his parents, Michael continued on with basketball and it fueled him to work even harder and strive to get better. Between his sophomore and junior year, Michael grew from 5 foot eleven, to 6 foot 3. As an upperclassman at Laney High, Jordan continued to strive to get better and work as hard as he could. Jordan’s hard work paid off a little bit when he earned an invite to a five star basketball camp in Pittsburgh, where only the best basketball players in the nation are invited to.
