In early July, a video of 33-year old Jeffrey Harrison wearing an all-out Michael Jeffrey Jordan uniform at a pick-up game – something he’s been doing for the past 6 years – went viral. What many people didn’t know about the Jordan fanatic they were making fun of is Harrison has autism.
And on Friday, the MJ of CDA (Coeur d’Alene) got the last and biggest laugh when he got a call from the MJ of the NBA along with a couple of boxes of new Jordan gear.
“I knew it was him.” Harrison said. “It kind of brought me to tears after I got off the phone so I figured this is really going to be nice. The fact that Michael Jordan took the time to call and put all this together. I love it, even the cologne even the sweats, I love it.”
Jordan also wrote Harrison a letter with some words of inspiration.
“Continue to believe in yourself, play hard and always remember to enjoy the game.”
I’m sure he will and I can’t wait to enjoy the next video of Harrison, with his new GOAT outfit, to go viral.
