Studying The Dance | Ep. 05
Featuring Roger Sheung
Thank you Roger for taking the time to share some of your favourite MJ moments with us. We know how much you respect Jordan and what he's done for the game of basketball and your career. It just wouldn't feel right if we didn't have you share your thoughts on MJ, so Thank you!
Favourite MJ Moments
Q: We're sure you have more than one favourite MJ moments. Players have confirmed The Shot, The Flu Game, and many other iconic moments in MJ's career as their favourite moments. What are some of your favourite iconic moments from MJ's career?
A: One would have to be the 'closed eyes free throw' against Mutombo.
A: And another one of my favourites, the 40-point game at 40 years old.
R: Nice! Respect the 40-point game at 40. No one really ever mentions that.
Favourite MJ Quote
Q: You've been absolutely consistent in all your years with us in the Metro League, which Jordan talks about frequently as an important habit to establish, working hard and being consistent. Tell us, growing up, was there a quote from MJ that resonated with you?
A: "I’ve had tendinitis since college "...I feel that this quote speaks to me. Lol!
Q: And of course, we can't end this without asking you, favourite Js, which would you go with?
A: By far the 11s.
Q: Any specific pair of the 11s?
A: Honestly, any colour way.
Q: We couldn't agree more.
Roger, thank you again for taking the time to chat with us. We know how busy you are with your family and your newborn baby, and the Metro League family just wants to say extend our congratulations and best energy to you. We know the little one is going to be a hooper just like you.
