Michael Jordan recently caught up with his alma mater, the North Carolina Tarheels, as they compete for a National Championship.

Jordan spotted UNC star, Harrison Barnes, wearing Kobe Bryant’s new Nike shoe, instead of the Nike Jordan 11’s, which are not sold in stores, being made specifically for the Tarheels.

“Hey Dude! Next time I see you in those Kobe Bryant’s i’m going to cut you right off”, Jordan said playfully, “I don’t care if your feet kill you; you’re going to wear those – Jordan’s!”

Jordan, would add that if the Tarheels get to the final four, they can have whatever they want.

Jordan’s last championship was in 1998, which will be 13 years ago this June.

        Nah he always throws diggs at Kobe..I think he really does feel some sort of threat…he’s the NBA’s bitch…No matter what Kobe does he will NEVER garner the same unanimous acclaim as Jordan and let’s face it..I think Mamba is a better player..people just have perfect 20/20 vision when looking back.

  • Whoa

    I’d rather pay retail on some Kobe VIs rather than spend who the hell knows what on some Jordan XIs that some idiot buys in bulk then puts on eBay.

    Much ado about nothing.


    Isn’t it a violation of the NCAA rules to give players gifts? The kids can’t get money or even have someone buy them food but Jordan can give them shoes? Booster…
