    Crazy MJ story

    I don't doubt it... matches up with other stuff I've read and heard about him over the years.

    That is such a great MJ story... he was a basketball god. Most folks would tell a story like this and it would seem fake... with Michael, it seems entirely real.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Shouldn’t this be moved to the Degenerate Gamblers thread?

    It seems the twitter sleuths have yet to be able to find the game in question...Roenick may have been exaggerating a bit.

    Here's a list of all games the Bulls won against the Cavs where Jordan scored 40 or more. The most likely game is March 28, 1992, where Jordan scored 44 points and the Bulls won 126-102, but Jeremy Roenick played (and scored) in a game in Hartford, CT that night.

    right on.

    I've seen Roenick golf in person. He can be very good at times !

    No athlete has ever been better than Jeremy Roenick in Sega Hockey c. 1994

    This story does nothing to reduce Jordan's status as a POS human being.
    If the janitor is not a Tarheel, then why is the water in the toilet Carolina blue?

    Historically, this UNC team is alarmingly unacademic.

    I admire his genius on the court and have a healthy disdain for just about everything else about him.

    Just another reason for me to dislike MJ. He's always been a "me or I" person. Putting personal gratification ahead of his team and team mates. Not playing golf but consuming 10 beers on top of playing at least 27 holes on game day. 9F him is right. GoDuke!

    This was my assumption as soon as I read the article.

    Interesting, as Roenick claimed it was an off day for him.

    Right. That's what is casting some doubt on Roenick's story as he told it (there aren't really any other games that would fit Roenick's description, apparently).

    Or maybe he doesn’t want to admit he played drunk?

    So...Michael Jordan was a point shaver? I always knew he was a cheat.

    Or, human memories are imperfect. Especially over a long period of time.

    They aren't digitally recorded, for later playback. They're more stories that we tell ourselves over and over, sort of like a one-person game of Telephone (for those that remember that phenomenon). We subtly and unconsciously change the details over time, either out of simple error, or so that the story makes more sense in our greater narrative of self.

    In fairness to MJ...

    ...10 beers for a ~215 lb athlete over a 10 hour period means he's at most buzzed, not drunk.

    Not commenting on the ethics of it all, just the booze.

    Very true. I'm reading Bill Bryson's new book, The Body, right now and he cites a story about a study where people were told repeatedly they were involved in an attack or robbed or something as a child or teenager and then interviewed later and not only did a large percentage of them believe it actually happened but they gave detailed accounts of everything that occurred. It just goes to show that our memories are sketchy at best and trying to remember details of an event that happened years ago is not easy.
