Layups: Leroy Smith, the Man Who Motivated MJ

Posted by Neil Paine on June 3, 2009

Back in high school, Leroy made the varsity team instead of Mike. Mike was motivated by this, and became the greatest of all time. Now Leroy wants to motivate you, too.

(For those wanting the real story behind the site -- and, yes, Nike is obviously behind it -- go here. As an added bonus, it also has all of Leroy's "infomercials" embedded on one page. Love that Charlie Murphy!)
