This is all a hoax by Flash owner Brandt Anderson.
In his hall of fame induction speech Michael Jordan mentioned Bryon Russell.
“From this day forward, if I ever see him in shorts, I’m coming at him.”
As the story goes a minor league baseball playing Michael Jordan stopped by the Bullâ€™s practice facility where the Jazz were working out. Then rookie Byron Russell came over and said, â€œWhyâ€™d you quit? You know I could guard you. If I ever see you in a pair of shortsâ€¦â€ Yahoo Sports
In 1998 Jordan came at Russell. The last career shot of Michael Jordan was a game ender over Byron Russell and the Utah Jazz ending the 1998 NBA Finals. All Jazz fans remember the play, a push off by Air Jordan and a dagger through the hearts of the Jazz faithful. It was the final shot of an amazing career.
Russell has said that not a single day passes in which someone doesnâ€™t ask him about the Jordan shot.
Russell challenged Jordan to a game of 1-on-1 after Jordanâ€™s hall of fame remarks. Orem Flash owner Brandt Anderson has invited the two to play the game during half time of a Flash game. Anderson has offered $100,000 to the charity of their choice as incentive.
According to the Provo Daily Herald
Michael Jordan is reportedly in Orem today to take on Bryon Russell in a 1-on-1 challenge during half-time of the Utah Flash home opener against the Dakota Wizards.
I was able to watch Jordan live on a few occasions. Tonight it just might be worth the price of admission to see Russell vs Air Jordan even if they are both past their primes.
