Having the greatest player of all time hanging around practices and team events must be a thrill for young players.
But according to rookie Cody Zeller, Jordan actually isn’t around that much. In a rookie diary for SI.com, Zeller shared some info on Jordan.
“I’ve probably seen Michael Jordan 3-4 times since being drafted. He was at our training camp all week before the season. It’s funny because when he’s around us he acts like one of the players. He’s talking about the game and whatever. It was fun at camp because he was staying in our hotel with us. It was crazy to watch all the stuff you have to do because you’re Michael Jordan,” he wrote.
“He can’t go to a restaurant and eat. He has to have someone go pick it up and bring it back to the hotel. He was locked in his room a lot of the time and couldn’t go to dinner with the rest of us,” Zeller wrote.
Majority owner and head of basketball operations for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, Jordan played in total 1072 NBA games (1039 started), averaging 30.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg in 38.3 minutes per contest.
He was a 14-time NBA All-Star, and 6-times the NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls.Follow @exnbadotcom
