Such is the power of Michael Jordan that all he needs to do is lightly touch a person and utter a few words to turn an almost-fight into a complete non-event.
As Jordan was leaving the MGM Grand after the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight, one of his bodyguards shoved a man aside, something to which the man took exception. For a second, it looked as if the confrontation would escalate into a full-on fight, until MJ intervened. Jordan simply put his arm on the man’s chest, told/asked him “We’re cool, right?” and there was peace in the land once more (or, at least as much as Las Vegas can be peaceful).
Michael Jordan: Millionaire, multiple-time NBA champion and MVP, quite possibly the greatest player in the history of basketball and now, apparently, expert peacekeeper.
