1.i am back! (喬丹最經典名言)
2.i can accept defeat but could not accept to give up .
3.when i step out on to the basketball court， i consider myself to be the best basketball player i can be. i have total confidence that once i step on the basketball court that i can do all the things that i'm capable of doing. 當我放大步伐走進籃球場的時候，我把自己想像成最優秀的籃球運動員，我有這樣的信心：一旦我踏進球場我能把所有我可以做的事情做好。
4."we're entertainers. i don't think my job is more important than all the firemen and policemen's jobs each and every day. there is a place for relaxation， and i think that's where my responsibility lies. hopefully， i can provide relaxation for some people." 我們球員也是演員，我不認為我每天的工作比消防員或者警察更重要，這球場是讓人們來放鬆的，而我有責任，或者能夠做點什麼去讓大家放鬆!
5.i'm not about the money. i don't care if i get paid a dime. i've said that many years. i'm going to play the game of basketball because i love it. 我不關心錢，我不在乎，哪怕我只是得到了很少的錢，我只想說在很長的歲月里，我盡力打了籃球，因為我熱愛籃球!
7."i'm not walking into this scenario thinking i'm failing. i'm walking in thinking i'm confident and pretty sure that i can make it work. if i sit here and listened to everyone else tell me that i can't do it， then obviously i wouldn't be here." 我不是帶著將失敗的情緒走進賽場的。我回來的時候滿懷信心，我相信仍然能夠有所作為。如果我只是坐在這裡聽別人告訴我不能復出，那我肯定不會出現在這裡。
8."physically， i know that i'm not 25 years old. i'm not stepping up and saying i will be 25 years old when i step on that court， but i feel like i can play the game of basketball at the highest level， and that's what i aim to do." “從身體上來說，我知道我已經不是25歲的年輕人了。當我走上賽場時，我也不會說我跟25歲時一樣強壯，但我相信我可以的最高的水平，這也是我的目標。”
9."i come from where you're expected to dominate and you are the target - everybody's shooting at you. well， here， no one's expecting anything， so i'm kind of coming from the underdog aspect of things， which is kind of different， but yet it's fresh， it's new. we're not expected to win 50 games. from what i hear from most of you guys， we're not expected to win 30 games. and that's a challenge. i'm not coming in with these preconceived ideas that we're going to be 50-32. i'll be totally surprised if we're 50-32， but i think we can be far better than 19-63." 當我退役時，我可以控制賽場，我是每一個人慾打倒而後快的目標，但現在，沒人對我有所指望，我是以低調的姿態出現的，這反差太大了，但這也很新鮮。沒人指望我們會取得50場勝利，很多人說我們不會取得30場勝利。這是一個挑戰……我並不是帶著將取得50勝的信心復出的，如果我們50勝32負的話，我會很吃驚的，但我想我們肯定會比19勝63負好.
10."i am going to have to be patient and let things fall into place and not expect myself to come out and score 40 or 50 points the first night. i'm just going to try to work my way back into the intensity of the game." 我將會有足夠的耐心，我不敢奢望在第一場比賽就拿下40分或者50分。我將以自己的方式逐漸適應激烈的比賽 .
11."if that was my concern， i wouldn't do this. i'm not afraid to take on a challenge. i'm not afraid to take a step. if i fall， i fall， pick myself up and move on." 如果關心這個，我就不會復出了……我從不害怕挑戰……我從不怕走出新的一步，如果我失敗了，那我會爬起來重新開始.
12."i'm all about challenges and seeing if i can go out and see if i can achieve something. if at the end of the day i do it， great. if i don't， i can live with myself."
13."everybody was so negative about what i was trying to do. if i read every newspaper about negative things that i was trying to do， i swear i wouldn't live in america. america's supposed to be the free will to do whatever you choose， do whatever you want to do. that's all i'm doing. i'm not committing a crime here. i'm just trying to play a game of basketball. what if i'm tired of playing ymcas or the boys and girls clubs? i want to step into the elite competition. if i can do it， great. if i can't， that's great， too. but you can't take my six championships away." 所有人都對我將要做的事情感到沮喪。如果我讀了那些反對我復出的報紙，我發誓我肯定不能夠在美國生存下去。美國的宗旨是隨心所欲地做你想做的事。我現在正是這么做的，我不是在這裡犯罪，我只是想打一場真正的籃球比賽。如果我厭倦了與小孩子的比賽，我會參加精英賽的。不論成敗與否，都是好事。不管怎么說，你不能將我的六枚總冠軍戒指剝奪。”
14."the young dogs are going to chase me around. well， i'm not going to bark too far away from them， either. i'm not running from nobody. if anything， it'll be a great challenge." 那些年輕的傢伙將在場上追得我團團轉，我也不會離他們太近的。如果是，那將會是一場很偉大的挑戰。
15."i'm not saying that i can take kobe bryant， that i can take tracy mcgrady. you guys are the only ones saying that they can take me. all good and fine. i'm pretty sure they're sitting back welcoming the challenge. guess what - i'm sitting back welcoming the challenge， too." 我不是說我可以打敗科比·布萊恩特，可以打敗麥克格拉蒂。你們都說他們將取代我，我相信他們一定在迫不及待地想會會我，我也在急著見他們。
16."i'm not walking into the dark. i know what i'm capable of doing. i know what's going to be expected of me. i know everybody's putting my head on the block. everybody's motivated to come out and play against me. everybody's motivated to come out and play against me. well， everybody was motivated to play against me when i left. so things haven't changed."我不是走進黑暗，我知道自己的實力，我知道人們對我的期望，我知道每個人都想將我打敗。當我離開時每個人都想與我比賽，現在也沒有改變.
17.if i could fly ，i would catch the sky .(air jordan. he has given all the audience a flying image.)
18."obviously， when i left the game， i left something on the floor. you guys may not be able to understand that. after we won the last title， i didn't sit down， ready to quit the game. i didn't want to go through the whole rebuilding process at that time. if phil (jackson) had stayed there and the team had stayed intact， i would have still been playing." 很顯然，在我離開比賽時，我在賽場上留下了一些東西。你們也許不會懂，當我們取得最後一個總冠軍時，我並沒有打算退役，我並沒有打算在當時推翻建立起來的基業。如果菲爾(傑克遜)呆在公牛隊的話，我現在還會在比賽。”
19."there's an itch that still needs to be scratched here， and i want to make sure the scratch doesn't bother me for the rest of my life." 如果自己被當作某場比賽的最佳球員，我就得向人們展示自己有那種水平，是因為我比別 人更努力、付出更多。我的成功並非來自安逸享受。(這句的原文不太一致)
20."i didn't realize the scratch was still there until i got close to the game， became involved in the responsibility， got close to the players. i understood that the competition created an itch. what i'm trying to do now is get that last scratch in - so that when i walk away i don't have to worry about that itch." 在我接近比賽之前，參加了比賽接近運動員之前，我沒有意識到這癢。我現在要做的就是撓最後一癢，當我再次離開時我就不會有所遺憾了.
21."a lot of people were very nervous about me stopping the growth of the nba because of my participation. i'm here to aid， to help， and at the same time， get that itch scratched. i'm not asking for the league to market me in any way. i'm not asking them to put me on television. i just want to play the game of basketball." 許多人都擔心我的復出會讓nba的成長停止。我就是出來幫助(nba成長)的。我沒有讓他們在商場掛我的logo，我也沒有叫他們用電視轉播我的比賽，我打籃球只是出於對這項運動的熱愛。
25.i love this game!
26.step by step，i can not see any other way of accomplishing anything.
27.talent wins games，but teamwork wins championships.天才可以贏得一些比賽，團隊合作才能贏得冠軍 .
