Michael Jordan moments where he was rude

Despite Michael Jordan being one of the best athletes to ever exist, there were moments where he lost his cool and was rude. One of the moments came when a rapper came up to Jordan asking for a photo.

Rapper Chamillionaire had asked for a photo with his idol Michael Jordan. Jordan brushed him off and also disrespected him by saying, “You know what, I tell you what, you pay $15,000 right now for a jersey from me and I’ll take a picture with you.” Needless to say, Jordan lost a fan that day.

Steve Kerr had once mentioned how Michael Jordan had punched him in the face for having a disagreement. “I disagreed with him one time,’ Kerr said with a chuckle. ‘I think he punched me in the face.” Steve Kerr mentioned this on the Dan Patrick Show.

Although he was on the receiving end, Kerr kept his cool and walked away. This was certainly very rude from Jordan.
