If you were wondering whether Michael Jordan has at all changed since his third and final retirement from the NBA in 2003, the answer is a big, fat, resounding no.
He’s still A) really good at throwing a basketball through an 18-inch-wide hoop and B) the most fiercely competitive a**hole who’s ever walked the face of the earth.
The stakes: a free pair of shoes for ever kid at the camp.
The result: a bunch of sad kids, obviously.
We’re talking about the guy who once punched his teammate and squeaky-clean nice guy Steve Kerr in the face during a scrimmage. The guy who used to tell defenders exactly how he was going to embarrass them, and then proved it. The guy whose Hall of Fame acceptance speech was a 48-minute middle-finger-to-the-world that spared no one, right down to the high school coach who left him off the varsity team when he was a sophomore in high school.
But man: that cat can still ball.
