NBA2k14 released part 2 of their Michael Jordan interview called “Michael Jordan Uncensored Part 2.” A few of the topics included his favorite Jordan sneakers and dunk, his best season, and what four players he would take to form the ultimate starting five.
He explained the significance of the #23 which was his 2nd option. Somehow his favorite number was also his teammate/brother’s fav and since his brother was older he got the number.
Jordan also touched on the Orlando incident when he had to wear #12 but didn’t make it sound like it was as big of a deal as it was. In 1989, Jordan’s jersey was stolen in the locker room before a game against Magic. The arena actually sealed off the building and searched departing employees. Security was so desperate to find the jersey they even took one from a kid in the crowd and checked with Jordan to see if it was his. It wasn’t, so he had to wear a nameless jersey with the #12 on it. The number change didn’t seem to bother MJ as he scored 49pts. After the game he said he would not sign autographs in Orlando again.
