Never make Michael Jordan mad

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — You know the phrase, “Don’t wake a sleeping giant?” Back in the early ’90s, a few members of the Charlotte Hornets learned this lesson the hard way in a game against the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan. As former Hornets guard Kendall Gill posted on Instagram, here’s what happened…

“Me, Larry Johnson, and Alonzo Mourning were young upcoming guns in the league. We were feeling ourselves in this game because we were giving it to the Bulls. After this play our Wild oats quickly became shredded wheats! Alonzo had just blocked 2 of the Bulls shots. We started talking smack. I could since MJ getting mad because We were matched up against each other. I didn’t give a crap though because I was young, dumb and didn’t know any better. MJ back doored me out of the triangle offense and put Zo on his collection of posters. Lol. Moral of this story? Callin out the Devil is one thing. Facing him is another! Never tug on Superman’s cape unless you’re absolutely ready! Did you hear me Pacman?”

According to Deadspin, this is the game when it happened. And as for the play? Watch out, Zo!

#TBT Y'all ready for another story? Haven't told one in a while. Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning and I were young upcoming guns in the league. We were feeling ourselves in this game because we were giving it to the Bulls. After this play our Wild oats quickly became shredded wheats! Alonzo had just blocked 2 of the Bulls shots. We started talking smack. I could since MJ getting mad because We were matched up against each other. I didn't give a crap though because I was young, dumb and didn't know any better. MJ back doored me out of the triangle offense and put Zo on his collection of posters. Lol. Moral of this story? Callin out the Devil is one thing. Facing him is another! Never tug on Superman's cape unless you're absolutely ready! Did you hear me Pacman? Don't rematch Floyd. Too many skills! #illini #illinination #illinibasketball #boxing #basketball #boxingaddict #chicagosports #allamerican #maypac #mayweatherpacquioa #allamerican #athlete #hornets #nba #nbastories

    You don’t simply get the title of GOAT. Jordan once also schooled Reggie Miller the same way.

    Rest.

    This guy’s been out of the league for decades and you bring him up ALL. THE. TIME. Enough!

      Because he is the greatest of all time and always will be. If you didn’t witness history then you are getting a chance to do it now with these kind of clips. Don’t complain, enjoy!

    @Kendall Gill, maybe you are referring to the wrong person. maybe you should address this to Mayweather since he’s the one talking smack to Pac. you are young and dumb way back then to mess with the GOAT, but right now at this comment, you are old yet still dumb.
