You are Michael's Dad. When your kids are young, you build a big basketball court for them and their friends in the family's back yard. You lay the foundations for Michael's first basketball school. You encourage all of your kids to play sports.
When you find out that Michael skips school to play basketball, you tell him that basketball is important but so is High School.
You love and care for your son. You encourage Jordan to play, but you also make sure that he makes all the right decisions in life, like finishing High School, choosing a good basketball team to play for, and help him decide if he should play at all.
Michael trusts you, and consults with you a lot- he knows that you will always help him make the right choices.
