Michael Jordan did not attend the national championship between Gonzaga and his alma mater, North Carolina. That’s odd, because he’s has attended UNC games in the past (like the one in the above photo) and last year’s national title game between UNC and Villanova, famously won by Villanova at the buzzer.
And you won’t believe this, but Michael Jordan at a big game led to Crying Jordan memes. I know. I was surprised too.
So why wasn’t Jordan at this year’s title game? Coach Roy Williams offered an explanation on The Dan Patrick Show.
