Somebody mentioned this story in a thread the other day, but I hadn't seen the video, pretty crazy, I don't get how you get the point where you'd act like that if you're Jordan, there's just no reason to treat people like that.
That's true. I respect Jordan as a player but people forget the fact he is a jerk. When I was younger I bought the media image of him as a "nice guy" but as I got older I realized the media kisses butt to people who are nice to them and treats players badly who are not nice to them. IE. Barry Bonds
Jordan was not liked by teammates in Chicago at times and was known for many years to be cheating on his ex-wife Juanita but the media looked the other way.
That's why I always question when announcers say how nice a player is, but they really aren't.
I'm a 49ers fan but I know that Joe Montana hated Steve Young and that Jerry Rice is one conceded jerk. Great players yes, but at times not nice people.
