Photos: Jordan’s fashion gaffe at Ryder Cup
by Scott M Gleeson, USA TODAY
Michael Jordan is talented at a lot of things.
When it comes to basketball, he’s perhaps the greatest player of all-time, winning six NBA championships while sticking his tongue out a lot on fade-away jump shots.
When it comes to baseball, he was not the greatest player of all-time, although he did help skyrocket minor league tickets.
When it comes to golf, he’s supposedly not that bad. We know that he’s way better than Charles Barkley and way worse than Tiger Woods.
When it comes to movies, he’s clutch. We still don’t understand why “Space Jam” did not win an Oscar.
When it comes to owning and managing professional teams, Michael is terrible (in our Barkley voice), i.e., Charlotte Bobcats last season.
When it comes to fashion, Jordan is a huge failure. Case in point: his attire at the Ryder Cup in Medinah, Ill., on Friday. He was caught wearing some painted-on, washed jeans and this life jacket-looking vest.
Typing “Jordan is a failure” feels so awkward, like typing “Terrell Owens is a role model” or “that Decision show LeBron did was a good idea.”
Anyway, Jordan has made news recently for reportedly having a dance-off with Scottie Pippen.
Let’s just hope MJ isn’t in a Zoolander-style walk-off anytime soon, because he’s been choosing his outfits like he chooses first round draft picks (circa Kwame Brown No. 1 to the Wizards in 2001).
There’s this website blowing up on the web, titled, “wtfismikewearing.” We highly recommend checking it out.
Here’s a scroll of some hilarious tweets ripping Jordan’s fashion on Friday:
@IAMKRIS24: Michael Jordan and his love for construction paper denim is out of control smh”
@jasonWSJ: Michael Jordan: we love you, but you need an emergency GQ intervention
@JustinTinsley: I have no clue Michael Jordan was going for here. This can’t be the same guy from Space Jam.
@netw3rk: MJ’s acid-wash mom jeans approach is just like how Einstein owned a dozen copies of the same suit to more efficiently focus his brain power.
