The real question though was…who was complaining??
James Jordan, father of basketball great Michael Jordan, was murdered in his car along Highway 95 in North Carolina.
He stopped at a rest stop along Interstate 95 in North Carolina for a nap, when two men approached him. They robbed, shot and killed, and dumped his body into a swamp. Like savages.
Michael retired from the NBA after this, started playing baseball, came back to basketball, then retired again. He then bought a basketball team, and became the first athlete to become a billionaire.
Mike’s the greatest of all-time, and no-dount his father made him who he is. He’s still with him every step of the way.
