Joe Rogan is not just a combat sports enthusiast. He also tries to keep a tab on various other sporting ecosystems, such as golf, NBA, and NFL. The Spotify podcast host once spoke about a weird golfing incident that involved retired NBA player, Michael Jordan. The bizarre nature of the event saw the Chicago Bulls legend being kicked out of a golf course for breaching the dress code policy.

Speaking with a guest during his podcast, the UFC icon revisited the incident. Clearly irked by the foul treatment Jordan was subjected to, Rogan lashed out and dubbed the whole incident ‘Crazy’.

He said, “We were just talking about how they kicked Michael Jordan off a course because he was wearing cargo shorts while he was playing golf. That’s crazy. Wouldn’t you be happy that Michael Jordan’s on your f****** golf course?”

Jordan enjoys playing golf and uses it as a second hobby to break away from the daily grind. However, what Joe Rogan said next about the incident could settle the GOAT debate, as the podcast dubbed MJ as the greatest player of all times instead of ‘King’ James.

“It [silly rules] doesn’t matter. It’s Michael Jordan! For sure, people would show up if they find out he’s there —- I mean like more people would go to that course. People will be excited. The greatest basketball player of all-time plays golf on your golf course.”
