There's Jordan the player and Jordan the executive
You would think what made Michael Jordan arguably the greatest player even in basketball -- talk about a debate that is fun but unquantifiable -- would carry over to his management roles. But his extreme dedication, willingness to put in the time necessary to succeed and inner drive to win when he stepped foot on the court hasn't carried over to his stints as general manager, owner and the like. There are obviously different skills sets involved but it's like Jordan hasn't taken his off-the-court roles as a challenge to be seriously faced. Henry Abbott writes about this subject.
