“My dad has given us so much, in everything, and not only to me, to the whole family. The only way we can say thank you is to perform week in, week out for him to be proud and that’s what we try to do,” he said.
Moreover, Jordan revealed an anecdote on their father. Saying that he doesn’t watch live games.
“He doesn’t watch the games live because he’s a bit too anxious, so they record them and he watches them afterwards,”
