    When I first signed with the Chicago Bulls in 1984, the NBA's Uniform Player's Contract included a clause that prohibited players from certain activities during the offseason, including playing the game. If you played without obtaining permission from the team and were injured, the team could get out of their contract with you. There was no way I could live with that kind of restriction. I needed to play. Not only had I always found comfort on the court, but I used the summer to improve. The Bulls finally agreed to what I called the "Love of the Game Clause". At the time, very few players, if any, had that kind of freedom the Bulls gave me.”
    -- Michael Jordan
