Michael Jordan to Golf With NBA Players He Can’t Talk to

MJ will hit the links with Deron Williams and other NBAers. The Bobcats owner just can’t say a word to them, under NBA lockout rules. From the Charlotte Observer: “Jordan has been cleared by the NBA to play in the American Century charity golf tournament this weekend. But under NBA lockout policy, Jordan can have no interaction with the four current NBA players also participating in the event. The NBA has threatened stiff fines in these situations, and Jordan would be no exception. [Deron] Williams, star point guard of the New Jersey Nets, said he’ll say hi to Jordan if he encounters him, but won’t be offended if Jordan can’t return the gesture. ‘It’s just the rule. It’s what the owners want,’ Williams told media Wednesday. ‘He’s an owner. It’s his rule.’”

    This would be the perfect time to tell MJ that Byron Russell is a far better golfer and see what he says…bet he would break the silence and swallow whatever fines the NBA gives him…

    Michael “Money” Jordan, should be looking at a way to keep the seven people he laid off on the Bobcats, a way back to the team. Money needs to understand they have families too, not everybody have sweat shops, where shoes are made for 1.00 and sell for 100.00. BOOK IT!!!

    He can take the fine…1 million? He donated 30x more than that one year. Anyone catch Mark Cuban with his players at the Espys? Kidd was like “You can afford it.”


    Its just a damn golf tournament Stern, calm down. Why is the nba so fine-happy? What if you are friends with somebody? You can’t talk talk to them them because you’re gonna get fined. David Stern kill yourself
