    MJ Heckles Barnes

    MJ catches the team walking to the bus and makes fun of Barnes for wearing Kobe's. Promises the team any kind of Jordan they want if they make the final four, including Jordan's that aren't made anymore...

    I find this video pretty cool, but I can see this kind of thing being turned into a fiasco.

    Somewhere in the myriad of NCAA rules I'm guessing a booster giving away $200 pairs of sneakers is illegal.

    I thought the same thing until I read...
    Upon hearing that, the words "NCAA violation" might spring into your head, but it appears that wouldn't likely be the case, as the Jordan Brand — owned by, of course, Jordan — is the team's official equipment supplier.

    I'm sure being the official supplier doesn't allow him to give anything extra to the team that they really don't need...

    It's not when it's MJ and Nike.

    What I thought was odd was when he said to Barnes, "I'm going to cut you off." Cut him off from what?

    After watching MJ's Hall of Fame induction speech, I'm sure he meant every word he said to HB and the other players even if it did sound like he was joking.

    I assume this just means the stuff that the rest of the team gets--jerseys, shorts, other gear. Don't try to read until it any more than you have to.

    Nonstory here - Jumpman = Nike = UNC equipment supplier. Nothing to see here.

    I'm just thinking how cool it would be to have MJ flip me ****. That would be pretty cool.

    Pretty sure Booker wears Jordans. And Gilstrap and Colvin both wore the retro 12's last year.

    Exactly. If you get the attention of MJ like that, you're doing something right. Anyone think MJ is going to give two ***** whether the benchwarmer averaging 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds a game if he is wearing Kobe shoes or the Jordans?

    Re: MJ Heckles Barnes

    I'm sure nothing would ever become of it but that's a straight up offer of a gift from a booster.

    Someone help me with this question. Every couple years isu has an equipment sale. What determines what a player can keep and what the school keeps?

    This was my immediate reaction as well. I can't believe just how bitter MJ seems to be. What does he have to be bitter about? He is considered the greatest player of all time, worldwide. I don't think he has been put down too much.
