When it comes to Michael Jordan vs arguments, people get caught up in stats and accolades. What makes Jordan the GOAT is that he’s one of the few players ever to actually put fear into other players. I’ve heard countless stories (many off the record) of former players actually saying they or teammates were intimated by Jordan. And it wasn’t just how Jordan acted on the court that created that fear and image of greatness, it’s the things he would do off of it.
Here’s an amusing story told by Chris Webber to Dan Patrick about MJ, via BleacherReport
“One time we played in Washington. We played a five game series against the Bulls. It was the year they won 72 games. We lose all three games by a total of seven points. I saw Michael Jordan come into our locker room with a cigar, while it was lit, and said, ‘Who’s going to check me tonight?’ And we looked at Calbert Cheaney and we were laughing like little school kids knowing that Calbert Cheaney was going to get him, we knew it wasn’t a game for Mike. He was going to be there and he was going to be playing like he said. Game Three we get off the bus and Juwan (Howard) is from Chicago and used to workout there. I’ll never forget, Jordan was sitting on his Ferrari and Pippen was right there and they have a cigar lit. We get off the bus and we have to pass them with a lit cigar. You want to talk about posturing? Forget Phil Jackson. You got Michael Jordan there behind the scenes smoking a cigar before the game, letting us know that he’s the Red Auerbach before the game even started. It was almost like, ‘I lit the cigar. I’m celebrating already. This is just a formality, you guys getting on the court tonight.”
THE GOAT’S FERRARI COLLECTION
Now let’s take a look at a few of those Ferraris in Jordan’s collection.
and let’s not forget the shoes, like the Air Jordan 14 Red Suede & XIV & that were inspired by Jordan’s love of the Ferrari.
