That One Time Michael Jordan Sucker Punched Will Perdue

Published

By now, most of us have heard the story of Michael Jordan punching teammate Steve Kerr in the face during a Chicago Bulls practice. Now, thanks to retired baller Horace Grant, we know Kerr wasn’t MJ’s only victim. During an interview on Hot 97, Grant  revealed that Jordan sucker punched center, Will Perdue.

“Our practices were so intense because Phil [Jackson], the mastermind behind everything, would put MJ on the second team,” Grant shared. “Me and Scottie [Pippen] would be on the first team and being competitive like he was, man, unreal, unreal. Of course punches got thrown, many fights. I’m just so happy that social media wasn’t [around] back then.”

Grant also talked specifically about the time that MJ went toe-to-toe with Chicago center Will Perdue. MJ got the better of him, but it wasn’t because Perdue couldn’t fight. Rather, it was because MJ’s teammates weren’t going to allow anyone to lay a finger on the best player in the NBA.

“I hate to tell the story…Will and I are still good friends,” he said. “Typical Phil, we run this play and Will set an illegal pick on MJ and MJ said, ‘Will, don’t do that again.’ ‘Whatcha talking about?’ That’s Will. MJ says, ‘Alright.’ Phil says, ‘Run it again.’ So naturally, we run it two more times, illegal pick. MJ walks up to Will—boom. Lit him up. It was over. We grabbed Will. You’re not going to hurt MJ. MJ can take care of himself. The next day on the plane, Will gets on with this huge shiner.”

Jordan is also rumored to have punched Jud Buechler, and got into a fist fight with Reggie Miller. Flip the page to see video of that classic scrap.

Colin Kaepernick, Steph Curry Want In On Carolina Panthers Ownership!

Published

Colin Kaepernick might’ve just eluded to the desire to own an NFL team over playing for the league.

As Kaepernick’s journey remains unclear with the NFL, one thing is now known for sure, he wants to own a team. But get this, he’s not alone.

Following the announcement by Carolina Panthers owner, Jerry Richardson, that he is selling the team, Diddy immediately started to campaign. “I would like to buy @panthers. Spread the word,” he tweeted. “There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history.”

In response, not only did Kaepernick tweet that he wants to be part of “the ownership group,” but Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry, also expressed he wants “in.”

Diddy followed up with,”Holla at me, let’s get it.”

To have a team owned by Diddy, Curry and Kaepernick would flip the league upside down and paint the picture for change. But what could they do for the league?

According to Diddy, if his dream came to fruition, the first thing he would do is address the Kaepernick “situation.” It was last season that the then 49ers quarterback kneeled in protest against racial inequality and police brutality.

The protest sparked national outrage, division across the NFL and even lead to Colin being blackballed — but could Diddy be the answer to the league’s controversial discussion?

The bigger question is; would Colin choose to take the corporate side over the field?
