Michael Jordan Went From Judging A Dunk Contest To Destroying The Winner In Jeans
Michael Jordan Once Went From Judging A Dunk Contest To Destroying The Winner In Jeans
In the summer of 1988, Michael Jordan went back home to South Carolina to judge a slam dunk contest.
JoJo English, who would later become Jordan’s teammate on the Chicago Bulls, was one of the contestants that night and ended up winning. English then started trash-talking at Michael Jordan for so long, that Jordan went on to destroy him, while wearing mom jeans.
The dunk off between high schooler English and Michael Jordan, after he was judging his Dunk Contest is legendary. Michael Jordan might be the only person ever to win a dunk contest as a judge and spectator.
