This past weekend, I showed you a bunch of NBA players who were exceptional football players in high school or college. One player I left off the list was the GOAT. The reason why Michael Jordan wasn’t on the list is because he never played football in high school or college. The reason why he’s getting his own football post is because he had a pretty impressive arm, as evident in this behind the scenes “NBA Inside Stuff” video, with his main man Ahmad Rashad. Ahmad probably wasn’t that impressed considering he was 4x Pro Bowl player in the NFL.
Now I’m not saying MJ had any shot at playing Pro Football like a LeBron, Iverson, Matt Barnes or Nate Robinson, but I am impressed that he was able to throw a ball that far and on cue (also amusing that he sticks his tongue out while playing football too).
The closest Jordan came to playing pro football was fighting crime alongside Bo Jackson in the 90’s cartoon Pro Stars.
