Now this is hilarious… “His Airness” Michael Jordan, arguably the best basketball player in NBA history, has been reportedly banned from a Miami Beach golf course for not adhering to the dress code. Here are details courtesy of the NY Post:
“Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course,” said a spy. Jordan’s multi-pocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts.
“He was given the chance to change but he didn’t want to,” a source said. The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, “He won’t be invited back.”
A rep for Jordan had this to say regarding the incident:
“Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change.”
Jordan’s attire has been the topic of viral ridicule over the years, and even has a Tumblr account dedicated solely to his outlandish choice of outfits (http://wtfismikewearing.tumblr.com/). Well, alright. I’m sure Jordan will have no problem finding a new golf course to throw his money around at.
