Two young basketball fans ran into Michael Jordan and now their encounter with the NBA legend has gone viral.
Two young basketball fans were waiting in a parking garage on scooters hoping to catch a glimpse of the Charlotte Hornets’ star player LaMelo Ball.
”We finna see LaMelo Ball. That’s not LaMelo,” the fan said when he started recording.
Instead, they ran into Michael Jordan. The NBA legend emerged from the building and soon as the kids caught a glimpse of him they got excited. The young fans shouted from a distance, asking him for a photo. However, the NBA Hall of Famer just waved them away and continued walking.
One of the young fans then jokingly asked, “Where LaMelo at?”
