After a retirement, a comeback and yet another retirement, Michael says he's finally settling into a "normal" life. He's been out of the spotlight for a few years, testing his skills as a coach—to his three teenage children!
"It's tough for an athlete who's been all over the place, been doing a lot of things, and had a lot of responsibility for himself and [is] now just trying to quietly get back to some type of normal lifestyle," Michael says. "Before I came to Chicago, I had a normal life. I could walk down the streets. I could do a lot of things. But now I'm starting to do a [few] more things as my kids get older."
Michael may be sitting on the bench now, but today's superstar athletes, like LeBron James , still hold him in the highest esteem.
"It gives me great pride that what I've done has, I guess, risen my name, as well as my personality, to a certain good standard," Michael says.
