Professional athletes love to talk about all the people who don’t believe in them, even if everyone believes in them. Some get creative. Throughout his NBA career, Michael Jordan referenced a high school coach cutting him. That was because nobody really doubted Jordan during his time at North Carolina and with the Chicago Bulls. But…
