Michael Jordan just bought the Charlotte Bobcats. And then he proceeded to show the team how great he was…by showing up at a shootaround wearing mom jeans and a smile. And then, I guess, Gerald Henderson challenged him to a game of H-O-R-S-E for his Big Mac or something.
Needling Henderson relentlessly for being from Duke, the North Carolina product kept clanging jumpers off the rim as Henderson quickly won the first shooting game.
But then Jordan, wearing jeans and sneakers, started getting hot. He hit a free throw with his eyes closed to take the lead in the second game.[..]
But Jordan did start missing, and Henderson, who has played little this season, started making shots. Teammate Gerald Wallace even started calling him Kobe Bryant. –CBS Sports.
In summation, arguably the greatest player to ever put on a pair of shorts lost two straight games of H-O-R-S-E to a guy that’s playing less than 10 minutes a game. For the Bobcats. I blame the mom jeans. And the incessant hitting on younger women. But mostly the jeans.
