I cannot fucking wait for Sunday.
There's been clips leaking on to Twitter all week that have just been unbelievable. One of the big things is how Jordan said that people are going to think he's a "horrible guy" after watching and as you can see his son Marcus responds to the quote.
I mean imagine growing up with Michael fucking Jordan as your father? Put all the perks aside for a second and realize how damn challenging that would be. The greatest basketball player/biggest perfectionist just watching and giving you feedback on your every move just sounds so crazy. Hell, I even remember seeing Marcus & Jeff play and it was honestly like they were their Dad. Everybody in the stands watched their every move. From walking into the gym to sitting on the bench it was all eyes on them because they were a Jordan. So I actually thought it was awesome to see his son tweet out a quote that his Dad obviously burned into him as a kid.
I also wonder what's going to be so bad that everybody is going to think he's an asshole? We all know that he wasn't reportedly the nicest guy, but I don't think there are going to be a ton of stories like alleged Wayne Gretzky one.
Urbandaddy - I remember a night when Wayne Gretzky insulted Michael Jordan at the table. It was a private salon game. Michael had ordered a drink from the cocktail waitress, and he gave her a five-dollar chip. Wayne took it off the cocktail waitress’s tray, gave it back to Michael, grabbed a hundred-dollar chip from Michael’s stack and put it on the cocktail waitress’s tray. Then he said, “That’s how we tip in Las Vegas, Michael.”
I assume it will just be more stories like this:
Which everybody will love him for.
I don't know, that's why this shit needs to come out already because it's going to be awesome.
