Michael Jordan isn't just the greatest basketball player of all-time. He is also the most incorrigibly shit talker. This is a man who called out his high school basketball coach and his own children during his Hall of Fame speech.
About a week ago, Ahmad Rashad asked Jordan what his dream golf foursome was. Jordan began to put President Obama on the list, but then thought better of it.
"I never played with Obama, but I would," Jordan said. "But nah, I take him out, he’s a hack. It’d be all day playing with him. I never said he wasn't a great politician, I just said he was a shitty golfer."
Obama was asked about Jordan's slight earlier this week during an interview with Wisconsin radio station WJMR. This this is what he had to say:
"Mike and I, we know each other, but I've never played golf with him. Michael wasn't very well informed about this. I think he might have just been trying to give Ahmad an extra ratings boost on his show. But there is no doubt that Michael is a better golfer than I am. Of course if I was playing twice a day for the last 15 years, then that might not be the case. He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats. Or the Hornets."While it's true the Hornets are off to a slow start, Jordan's franchise appears to be on the upswing after a playoff appearance in 2014. That plus the shellacking Obama just suffered at the polls and this might not be his best week to pick a fight with Bball's GOAT.
Then again, the US Army.
