On the face of the video it feels like Michael was intrinsically motivated. He does say he loves the sport, but Michael’s life after basketball is more interesting, and i’m intrigued to debate this. If he was as intrinsically motivated to play basketball, why did he switch to baseball. Maybe that’s where his true motivation lied. His ability as a basketball player is probably unquestionable but it’s how he played baseball that tells me more about his personality and motivation.
