A Kingdom Man Has Got It

I’ve got it.
—Tony Evans, Kingdom Man

The Chicago Bulls were losing a normal, regular season game early in Michael Jordan’s career. Jordan reentered the game and poured in about 25 points. The Bulls won.
As they walked off the court, assistant coach Tex Winter turned to Jordan and said, “You know, there’s no I in team.”

“There’s not an I in team,” Jordan replied. “But there’s an I in win.”

Jordan and the Bulls championship dynasty still lay ahead, and it would take the contributions of entire teams to rise to their eventual dominance. But when the game was on the line, no one rose to the challenge like Jordan. He was the leader. MJ was the man.

When a problem comes up in the Evans home, I sometimes raise three fingers, which stand for three words: I’ve got it.
