Michael Jordan has left little room for anyone to come and make their mark as the greatest in any basketball category. And yet, a decade into his retirement, Steph Curry emerged as the greatest shooter of all time. So the idea of having both the legends in the same frame is just dreamy. Well, that dream came true at the Ryder Cup 2021 where the two recently met.

Now, Air Jordan is hard to please. In fact, the owner of the Charlotte Hornets once joked in one of his interviews that the GSW icon is still not a Hall of Fame level performer. But have things changed ever since?

Cameras caught Michael Jordan and Steph Curry having a chit-chat

On September 24th, the prestigious Ryder Cup 2021 kicked off, and it saw Team USA taking a formidable 6-2 lead over Team Europe. Present in the audience were two basketball phenoms, Michael Jordan and Stephen Curry.

Michael Jordan was enjoying a match between Dustin Johnson & Xander Schauffele and Bernd Wiesberger and Paul Casey. On the other hand, the ‘Baby Face Assassin’ was busy rooting for Bryson DeChambeau & Scottie Scheffler against Tyrrell Hatton & Jon Rahm. 

However, the two NBA greats became the center of attention when they took some time to sit across a table and have a casual chat. Curry in his Under Armour shoes and White golf cap looked as sleek as MJ looked in his dark blue attire. This forced the netizens to ask, what’s cooking between the two?

Notably, in the gap of four holes during the 11th to 14th, Euro VC Henrik Stenson came running in to greet the two.
