Jordan didn't want to be viewed exclusively as a scorer. His defensive skills were as sharp, if not as flashy, and he became the first player in NBA history to win Defensive Player of the Year and MVP awards in the same year when he did it in 1988. He's one of the all-time leaders in steals and set records for a guard with blocked shots.
