Jordan’s Liver Is Mighty Cold

The Best Part of Being Like Mike

An NBA rookie
May be a tough cookie
And maybe he has Michael’s hands;

Perhaps the kid’s fleet;
He has got Michael’s feet,
And runs ’em, to cheers from the stands;

Each shot he lets fly
Shows he’s got Michael’s eye;
He’s Like Mike, but only in part:

He’ll have to deliver
Without Michael’s liver…
And never will have Michael’s heart!

– The Yellow Doggerelist
