The man in question is Curtis Polk. And the very same Polk who is second in command at the Bobcats. Of course, after being so important to Jordan and his brand, he had to come to NASCAR with him. In fact, Brett Griffin describes him as the “Game Changer,”

Griffin said, “When they were so excited Michael Jordan got here, guess what he brought with him? A bunch of smart people. He’s the game changer, he’s the guy that would come in with all of his experiences in other sports and entertainment and licensing. Because guess what the Jordan brand is. A fu*king licensing genius.”

He adds, “So here comes this guy to the fight. Guess who you want on the table? This guy.”

Of course, he’s a very important part of 23XI, and just most spheres of Jordan’s financial life.

He said “The first thing I’m going to do is text Michael Jordan. He texted me on Wednesday. He said he was in Monte Carlo. I popped into his head like I always do, which I thought was a little odd. He says, ‘I know you’re about to head into the playoffs. I just want you to know I’ve never admitted to anybody that anyone is better than me at anything my whole life. But if you win this race this weekend, I will admit that you’re a better driver than I am.’”
