Default Why is Michael Jordan considered an A-Hole off the court?

Not talking about how cocky he was on the court, he could talk as much smack as he wanted there. He's the greatest.

But beyond Chamillionaire's anecdote about his run in with MJ, what are other true stories of how MJ behaves off the court? Both back in the day and today.

His Hall of Fame speech was beyond ridiculous.

"I just wanted to let you know, you made a mistake, dude"...talking about his high school coach who didn't pick him his freshman year or whatever.

I was entertained, but it was ridiculous.

Big fan of his basketball exploits but MJ has some serious problems coping with real life. Dude has lost some of his marbles..

Off the top of my head he's punched teammates and my least favorite quote from him was one of his teammates was picking up tickets for his family to watch him play and he said no one wants to watch you sit on the bench or something similar in that regard

Lol that's horrible

MJ is a sh1t head. Kobe may not be as good as him but at least he isn't an awful human being like MJ. I'm gonna hate reading all the 35-40 who will never believe michael would do anything bad because he's their childhood hero. Or all the Bulls homers who will defend him to the death.

I respect Kobe 1000000x more than MJ. MJ is SOOOO LUCKY he didn't play in the internet era.
