    That's about the oldest Jordan line ever, dressed up again.

    He is doing a lot of interviews and other public stuff all of the sudden. Why is he trying to convince everyone he isn't the world's supreme asshole, does he have a book coming out or something?

    Do you think the average person knows what a dick Jordan is? I know most of us do, but I don't get the sense that most people really know that.

    There's more awareness of it since the Hall of Fame speech.

    Maybe he's trying to look erudite and clever to boost the value of an athlete's degree at the University of North Carolina.

    I think a lot of people write most of it off as him just being hyper-competitive. I do think the HOF speech caught a lot of people off-guard though, because they thought he left that on the court. I don't think people realize that if someone is that much of a miserable dick on the court, he probably doesn't leave all of it there.

    Think Sam Smith who wrote The Jordan Rules has a new Jordan book out. Not sure if MJ cooperated or participates in profits.

    His second Jordan book was in the bargain bin about a week after it came out. I have no idea if it was any good or not, but it got zero hype after The Jordan Rules came out. The media was probably afraid to review it.

    I now officially open the SJ contest for replies Keegan could have gone with instead of folding:

    Are you sure both my shoes are yours? I heard your ex-wife got one of them in the divorce.

    I'm going to walk away from this tweet battle. Or am I being banished from it? Hmmmmmm ...

    Well done, LTL.

    Fair point, MJ. I might want to rethink this. Didn't Kwame Brown wear your shoes? Clearly Mars Blackmon was exaggerating their powers.

    MJ, those shoes look nice, but they're not helpful when trying to hit curveballs.
