Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “28 examples of Michael Jordan's incredible competitiveness”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Jordan was known as one of the fiercest competitors in the NBA, unafraid to talk trash and mix it up with other players. 

However, that competitiveness extended beyond the court. He was known to be ruthless in golf and would look to make everything a competition — even drinking water.

"Mike will compete with anything, though. If we're drinking water, Mike will be like, 'I'll race you!'"

As it's told in "The Last Dance," Jordan and his teammates' mocking of Krause was a result of feeling like Krause didn't appreciate their work and success as a team. They often tried to prove points about their talent over other players to make a point to Krause.

"He punched me in the face … It was one of the best things that ever happened for me. I needed to stand up and go back at him. I think I earned some respect. But, we have a great relationship ever since … you gotta prove it, and then once you prove it, you're fine."
