Michael Jordan is considered by many to be the best player in history and one of the greatest athletes of all time. With the passing of the years anecdotes come to light that in the past could never have been told and that is what has happened now with the American legend.

It was Jeremy Roenick, former NHL Chicago Blackhawks, who has revealed that his good friend Jordan got drunk before playing with the Bulls, in a game where he was just named MVP. The former ice hockey player started by leaving a pill that nobody could resist after asking him if he had ever played with 'Air Jordan': "I have a good story, but I don't know if I should tell it on the radio."

Given the expectation that formed in the study, Roenick continued: "Time back, in the 90s, when the Bulls were on fire, Michael called me and said 'see you at the early Sunset Ridge, we can play 18 holes.' No we had plans, we actually had the day off - he with his then team- ".

It was Jeremy Roenick who won the game. "We played a round and I won him a couple thousand dollars and he was ready to go. That night the Bulls played against Cleveland and I thought he was going to want to go home to rest. But no, he told me to play again," I reveal later. "So he went to fill an ice pack and some beers and we went back to play. We did another round of 18 holes. We've been drinking all afternoon and he had to go straight to play. From Sunset Ridge to the stadium," the former continued. hockey star.

Roenick did not hesitate to brag about the money he had won for Michael Jordan and would use it to bet on the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Chicago Bulls. It was then that the now owner of the Charlotte Hornets challenged him: "He told me 'today we won by more than 20 points and I will score more than 40.' I did not believe him and said he was betting twice as much as we won, we had been drinking all the late. What did the damn do? That night he scored 42 points and the Bulls beat the Cavs by 24 ... After 36 holes of golf and at least 10 cans of beer! "

Finally, Jeremy Roenick did not hesitate to praise the figure of Michael Jordan: "For me he is probably the best athlete I've ever seen in the whole world. Watching him play, witnessing his games, was really impressive."
