U.S. president Obama shuts up Michael Jordan after trash-talk quote

obama-ballingMichael Jordan has been one of the better trash-talkers back in his day, and even after he retired, he never stepped away from trash-talking. Now it seems like his trash-talking has reached a new level.

In a recent interview with the Back 9 Network’s Ahmad Rashad, Jordan started some trash-talking regarding… the U.S. president Barack Obama.

“I never played with Obama but I would. But no, it’s OK I’d take him out. He’s a hack. It’d be all day playing with him,” Jordan said. “I never said he wasn’t a great politician. I’m just saying he’s a s—– golfer.”

It took Obama a week to respond to Jordan, but he did, and the way he did – might think about this type of trash-talking next time.

In a pre-midterm election interview with Milwaukee radio station WJMR, Obama was asked to provide a comment on Michael Jordan’s comments.

“Michael and I know each other, but I’ve never played golf with him, but I played with Ahmad [Rashad],” Obama said. “And the last time we played, I think it was against Alonzo Mourning, and we won both times.”

Further on, Obama said Jordan wasn’t very well informed on Obama’s skills.

“Michael wasn’t very well informed about this, I think he might have just been trying to give Ahmad an extra ratings boost on his show,” Obama said.

“There’s no doubt that Michael is a better golfer than I am, because if I was playing twice a day for the last 15 years, then that might not be the case,” Obama said.

“He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats, or the Hornets,” Obama said. “I love him though, he brought us a lot of championships.

The U.S. president went on to add that Jordan talks trash all the time, even when he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

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.

Jordan led the NBA in scoring in 10 seasons, and also was a fixture on the NBA All-Defensive First Team, making the roster nine times. Many of Jordan’s contemporaries label Jordan as the greatest basketball player of all time.
