I think Michael Jordan demonstrates intrinsic motivation but also has been motivated by success. Like many great sports people, I believe Michael Jordan would have been motivated just by his love of the sport. Basketball is part of his life and his being and this would have been the case even if he hadn’t been so successful. nevertheless I think success breeds success and his competitive drive to be the best also demonstrates extrinsic motivation.
