Jordan Insults NC Tar Heels’ Choice In Shoes
Watch as Michael Jordan gives a ‘pep talk’ to the North Carolina players in the form of fashion criticism. Michael isn’t too happy that his fellow Tar Heels are sporting Kobe’s on their feet. A bit hard to understand so a transcript is included in the post.

“If I see you in them Kobe Bryants, man, I’m gonna cut you right off,” Jordan said. “I don’t care if your feet kill you, you’re gonna wear them Jordans.
“Wait ’til I tell your momma, man. I’m gonna tell her. But if you’re gonna keep winning, you can wear them. But that Duke game, you got killed.”
Jordan’s Duke jab was in reference to UNC’s 75-58 loss to the rival Blue Devils in the ACC tournament title game. In that defeat, Barnes had just 16 points off of 6-of-15 shooting.
It wasn’t a completely embarrassing run-in, though, as the entire team was given some added incentive to keep winning in the NCAA tournament.
Jordan said that if the Tar Heels win two games in New Jersey this weekend and get back to the Final Four, he’ll supply the entire team with the tough-to-find (and quite pricey) Air Jordan 11 Retro “Cool Greys,” along with “anything you want.”
