North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame to Induct Michael Jordan

Um, shouldn’t Mike have been inducted into this Hall of Fame years ago? Whatever the case, here’s to hoping Jordan hired a speechwriter this time around. From the Observer: “The North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame announced it will officially induct Michael Jordan on Dec. 14 during halftime of the Charlotte Bobcats game at Time Warner Cable Arena. Jordan, who attended Laney High School and later starred at North Carolina, was elected into the hall by the board of directors in 1993. At the time, he had retired from a professional basketball career and started playing professional baseball. ‘This is obviously a tremendous honor and I am proud to be an inductee of the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame,’ Jordan said in a statement released by the Hall of Fame. ‘When I think about all the great athletes from North Carolina that inspired me to become the best I could be, it’s humbling to know that now I stand with them as members of a very special fraternity.'”
