As one of the best, most renowned professional athletes in history, Michael Jordan dominated expert basketball as no one had before. Powered by a powerful mix of charisma, nearly superhuman abilities, and a ferocious requirement to control the video game, he won 6 NBA champions with the Chicago Bulls and recorded every basketball award and award possible prior to retiring and taking a top executive post with the Washington Wizards. But retirement didn’t suit the male who was once king, and at the innovative age of thirty-eight Michael Jordan set out to recover the court that had actually been his dominion. When Absolutely Nothing Else Matters is the definitive account of Jordan'’s equally incredible and devastating return to basketball. Having gone on the road to chronicle Jordan'’s last two seasons, award-winning Washington Post writer Michael Leahy draws a fascinating portrait of a deeply intricate man waylaid by his impulses and impatience, often hindered by injuries, assaulted by more youthful gamers excited to usurp his throne, and eventually done in by his anticipation. Encouraged for 20 years by his sport'’s tycoons to think that he had no limitations or superiors, Jordan could not see his influence and power fading as his Wizards days ticked down and his group'’s losses and dissension grew. For teammates and outsiders alike, the star became a non-stop driven, sometimes unapproachable character. Leahy exposes the striking contrast in between Jordan'’s public image and the guy who could not stand not “bein'’ it.” Determined on changing the average Wizards into champion competitors, Jordan controlled every facet of his new team, dispensing orders behind the scenes to coaches and gamers. As his anger and bitterness over Washington'’s on-court obstacles became progressively public, his teammates'’ animosity of him stoked already burgeoning tensions in between Jordan and the Wizards'’ leading brass. Leahy unmasks the misconceptions and unravels the much deeper lessons behind the highs and lows of the two seasons, lighting up the agonizing reality Jordan was forced to accept after the Wizards'’ stopped working playoff quote in his final season. When Absolutely Nothing Else Matters has to do with absolutely nothing less than a guy struggling to come to grips with the end of a career, and the unpredictability of his life ahead.
