Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss admitted that she couldn’t stand Michael Jordan, but now she raises a toast to him:

“Tonight my toast is to Michael Jordan. I couldn’t stand your name in the 90s’ you were dominating everything, but over the last few years I’ve really grown to admire you, we have built a friendship of mutual love and respect and all along this journey I have learned that when you honor your opponent it actually brings out the best in you, so Michael, thank you for bringing the best in so many of us,” Buss said.
