MJ: Tiger's Masters win was 'greatest comeback I've ever seen'

Woods and Jordan are widely regarded as the greatest of all time in their respective sports.

To say Woods "got back" is an understatement. He's won a tour event [the Tour Championship]. "His confidence is only going to build from here".

And Jordan readily admits that what Woods accomplished with his one-shot Masters' victory in the wake of all those back surgeries, professional setbacks and two crushing bouts of personal humiliation, was unprecedented. He's probably the only person who believed he could get back.

And Woods' return surpassed Jordan's expectations for the golfing superstar, with the National Basketball Association legend admitting he didn't think Woods would ever fully make it back to the top of the game.

"I took two years off to play baseball, but nothing like that", Jordan told Aldridge.

"Since I retired after caddying for Adam Scott - and before him Tiger Woods, Ray Floyd, Greg Norman, Ian Baker-Finch, Michael Clayton and others - I've gone back to playing the game I love", Williams wrote on the Players Voice website.

It remains unknown when the console may go on sale in China, with games needing to clear a separate approval process. Nintendo has previously released gaming devices like the N64 and the 3DS XL in China under iQue branding.

"But that's Tiger Woods - he does things no-one else could dream of doing". To me, that's a major accomplishment.

"I never thought he'd get back physically", Jordan said ...

"There were so many people that were doubting him". You're going against guys who are more gifted physically. To me, it's unbelievable. But he took it head-on.

Michael Jordan was in awe of Tiger Woods' victory at The Masters on Sunday and believes the win marked "the greatest comeback I've ever seen", according to The Athletic's David Aldridge. I was watching TV and they were congratulating him, but the first thing they bring up is the negative aspect. "The chance to see [Woods] at that place be able to come back when everybody counted him out, it's cool because I kind of have an idea of what that feels like, climbing back to the top of the mountain". Mentally, you always think you can.

"He had to change his game; he had to change his perspective a little bit", Jordan said.

Jordan ain't the only one feeling that way ... everyone from Donald Trump to Tom Brady to Michael Phelps commented on their amazement over TW's 15th major championship win.As for the debate between who's the greatest athlete of all time between Tiger and Jordan ... we actually asked Scottie Pippen that this week - and you'll wanna hear his answer ...
