Jordan ‘absolutely loves’ Angels’ Trout, wanted to be weatherman
Judging from a response during a Q&A session at his 20th annual basketball camp, Michael Jordan might like to be like another Mike: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
Asked if he could add another member to Team Jordan — from any sport — His Airness pointed to the 2014 AL MVP.
"I am a big fan of Trout, the baseball player," Jordan said (at the 3:08 mark). "I absolutely love him. I wish I could hire him. But he’s Nike, so I can’t steal Nike’s guys."
He probably didn’t need to clarify Trout as "the baseball player."
But here we are talking about Jordan’s admiration of Mike Trout, something I find really interesting given the legend’s baseball sabbatical between NBA three-peats.
Of course, I’ve also buried the lead: MJ wanted to be a weatherman?! I’m not sure meteorology is a sport but let’s just roll with it.
