“Melvin: You mentioned staying healthy and the COVID vaccine. Are you at all concerned about the protocols?

Jordan: Not at all. Not at all. I am total in unison with the league. And I think everybody, you know, has been speaking about the vaccinations. And, you know, I’m a firm believer in science and, you know, I’m going to stick with that and hopefully everybody abides by whatever the league sets the rules. I think once everybody buys in, we’re going the be fine.”

Jordan donated $10 million to open two Michael Jordan Family Clinics in his home county in North Carolina. At the time, two existing Jordan clinics had administered nearly 1,000 COVID-19 vaccinations.

Jordan also discussed his philanthropic efforts on “Today”:

Melvin: What’s driving Michael Jordan to give away so much of his money?

Jordan: Actions speed louder than words. I can say a lot of different things but my actions have been that I want to make a difference.

Michael Jordan isn’t perfect but he seems to have his heart in the right place.

Giving back on that scale must feel fantastic.
