Don’t let the stories of Michael Jordan punching Will Purdue or Steve Kerr or the video game Chaos in the Windy City fool you, the GOAT wasn’t much of a fighter. I’m not saying this because he ran from Mike Tyson when the former heavy weight champ wanted to beat his A$$ over Robin Givens, I’m saying that because Reggie Miller almost beat MJ’s A$$.
But on Saturday night after the Mayweather and Pacquiao “fight,” MJ supposedly stopped a fight between a pretty tough looking dude and J’s bodyguard. It’s hard to figure out exactly what’s going on in this video other than some real thirsty fan wants MJ’s attention, but here’s youtuber DelFunkBoy explaining what happened.
We thought it was powerful how Michael Jordan quelled a situation that was going to get out of hand real fast if he had not stepped in. Michael Jordan was actually protecting his bodyguard after the bodyguard pushed that black guy for no reason. The black guy that the bodyguard push was a major player and Michael Jordan knew that. Out of respect for MJ the black guy let it go. That goes to show Michael Jordan’s power and influence off the court. FYI, it wasn’t us asking for a picture with MJ and I’m with you on that one, he sounded like a buster.
Crazy right. Who would have thought a 52 year old Jordan and his ridiculous jeans would be so cool and calm in that situation – without his friend/enforcer Charles Oakley. Speaking of Oak, I will forever have this image of him getting out of a car at All-Star weekend, wearing an all-white suit, followed by 4 guys who look like extras from a Martin Scorsese gangster film.
Back to MJ, I hope we have find out more details about this almost fight that happened after an almost fight this past weekend. In the meantime, let’s watch some of MJ’s best NBA fights followed by a Mike Tyson Punch Out version of the Mayweather “fight.”
