MJ being MJ

As a fan of the Tar Heels, obviously Michael Jordan is one of our most cherished icons. In the Tar Heel museum, there is a typed letter to Michael from dook’s coach that wished him well and said they were sorry he wasn’t going to attend there. They said it was the number one requested item when people come to the museum. MJ has done pretty well for himself over the years and this clip is funny to see. Several thoughts after the jump…

First of all, how about that ATV thing he was messing with? It’s no doubt his and no doubt expensive.

Second, MJ is still so competitive he won’t even let Harrison Barnes wear Kobe’s model of Nike? Ever the competitor

Third, I love that he challenged them on their recent loss to you-know-who. Mike’s no dummy. It’s that fire that drove him.

Forth, before you call the NCAA for violations on getting free stuff, The Jordan Brand supplies the team with gear, shoes and uniforms.

Fifth, I can’t get over how much MJ looks like his Dad now.

Sixth, I would love to be a fly on the wall for the conversation with Coach K.

He was probably reminding him about that letter…..

    As much as I love seeing a legend hanging and influencing with young student athletes, the one thing that is strange to me is the amount of North Carolina basketball players that have Beats by Dre headphones. $150 to $200 per pair seems like a lot for a college student athlete to be able to afford. Hmmmm….

      Not going to lie….I had the same thought. You never know though. Maybe they got them for the Big10-ACC Challenge. In previous years ESPN has given the players from the schools that participated GPS’s, PS3’s and iPods.
