No one is exempt from the “Crying Jordan” social media phenomenon … Not even Michael Jordan himself.
Wednesday night’s game between the No. 13 Indiana Hoosiers and No. 4 North Carolina Tar Heels was a matchup of the alma maters of NBA legends Isiah Thomas and Jordan, respectively.
After the Hoosiers defeated the Tar Heels 76-67, Thomas took advantage of the viral sensation in a friendly diss toward his long-time rival.
While Thomas certainly had his fun this night, Jordan undoubtedly holds all the bragging rights in their rivalry. That’s hard to debate against when you have six championship rings.
