Michael Jordan made number 23 famous for the Chicago Bulls, winning six world championships in professional basketball. All the ballplayers today want to wear #23 to "be like Mike." But no, the number became famous before MJ wore it. The "latest" is not always the "greatest" as the media would have us believe.

The original #23 produced a record-setting 44 points per game for his Poppa at Louisiana State University. His NBA all-star career was cut short by a knee injury. He died in mid-life of a heart attack, but had the good fortune of finding the Lord Jesus Christ before his earthly life was cut short. It was learned that he had a defective heart and should have never been playing basketball.

Who has heard of Oscar Schmidt?

Perhaps the MJ of chess is not a player - but a piece...the queen!
