Michael's biggest strength was his mental game. Jordan held a decisive mental edge over his opponents throughout his entire career. It was his mental toughness... Jeff Janssen, M.S.

…he (Gretzky) was not very strong physically, but he made up for that in the mental edge he held over opponents.

Tiger Woods

there’s another quality even more important than skill. It’s his mind, and that very well could be his greatest weapon.
