To mark 30 years since Michael Jordan made his debut for Chicago Bulls, BBC Sport speak to his former manager Rod Thorn and Bulls point guard Derrick Rose to discuss the athlete's influence on the sport.
Thorn, who was influential in signing Jordan in the 1984 draft, describes the Bulls star as a "special talent" which might never be replicated in the sport.
Rose says Jordan brought "excitement" to Chicago and is still a "huge figure" for athletes.
