Michael Jordan’s son Marcus, a freshman basketball player at the Univ. of Central Florida, became rather opinionated last night when the NBA Finals Game 7 telecast featuring the Lakers and Celtics aired a graphic showing a statistical comparison between his dad and Kobe Bryant in NBA Finals series.
After he saw the graphic and heard the game broadcasters discuss the comparison, Marcus Tweeted from his Twitter account:
NO ONE…And I mean NO ONE should EVER com par kobe Bryant to my dad an say that he is anywhere near close to my dad. He’s jagging this game.
Last we heard from Marcus, his father was demanding UCF drop its school-wide, multi-million dollar endorsement agreement with adidas in favor of a new deal with Nike.
After Micheal threatened to pull his son out of school if adidas wasn’t dropped, UCF caved. The lost deal initially ended up costing the school $3 million.
If, for some strange reason, you were to wonder where the college freshman’s hubris came from to clown Kobe moments before he won his fifth NBA title, now you know.
