On August 3, 1993, Michael Jordan's father, James Jordan, was found dead, his body floating in a South Carolina swamp.

Nearly three months after Michael learned of his father's murder, shortly after he announced his retirement from basketball, the NBA legend sat down with Oprah on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and he seemed remarkably composed. In fact, he professed no desire for vengeance against the people who committed the crime.

In this candid clip from his interview, Michael opens up to Oprah about where he was at in the grieving process mere weeks after receiving the tragic news.
