Michael Jordan Told Rookie Rip Hamilton He Wasn’t Good Enough to Play in Jordans
If you’re going to lace up a pair of Nike Air Jordan shoes, your game better fit.
Recently on ESPN’s The Jump, Former NBA All-Star Richard Hamilton discussed exactly what it was like to play with Michael Jordan during the Wizard years.
When Hamilton was a rookie on the Washington Wizards, Jordan was finishing off his legendary career. However, at that time, the Hall of Fame trash talker told Rookie Rip that he was not worthy to play in a pair of Jordans as his sneakers are “for All Stars”/
Perhaps it was exactly the motivation Hamilton needed as he went to become a 3-time All-Star and eventually signed with the Jordan Brand.
