Michael Jordan’s Neighbors Unhappy He’s Moving in, Say He’s a Nuisance

Michael Jordan has a reputation for being kind of a party animal. He likes to gamble, smoke cigars, and play golf. His Airness marches to the beat of his own drum, and doesn’t exactly give off the impression that he cares what people think about it.  According to Gossip Extra, those are the characteristics that have his future neighbors at Jack Nicklaus’ The Bear Club already annoyed.

“I don’t know which is worse,” a source inside the community said. “The half-smoked cigars in the grass or that fact that he rarely plays without a posse. I’ve seen him out there with 10 people and they’re hooting and hollering. The point of living in this place is that it’s quiet. The residents are seething but there isn’t much they can do about it.”

That certainly sounds like Mike.  Jordan hasn’t moved in yet, as his modest 37,000 square-foot home is still under construction.  His spokeswoman, Estee Portnoy, said that the above opinion is just that of one person and called Michael a “true gentleman.”  I wouldn’t go that far.

If the other residents are concerned about half-smoked cigars on the grass, they should make M.J. a bet that he can’t smoke his entire cigar and then throw the end of it in the rubbish.  Or play him for it.  We know he likes to golf and talk a little trash — even if it’s with a former president. One thing Air Jordan will never do is turn down a wager.

H/T to The Big Lead for the story.

    sounds kind of racist  to me….I’m guessing all the old white guys at the country club gave these quotes.

    NOT SURPRISED BY THIS, AS HE IS AN ARROGANT S.O.B. – I MET HIM ON THREE OCCASIONS, AND EVERY TIME FOUND HIM TO BE ONE OF THOSE KIND THAT THINKS HE IS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE..  FAME, FORTUNE, AND EVERYTHING THAT GOES WITH IT – HE ATTRIBUTES TO HIMSELF, HE WOULD NEVER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT HAS MADE HIM “RICH BEYOND HIS WILDEST DREAMS!!”

    Not racist! Jordan has always been an arrogant A-Hole. Ever since he started getting his celebrity he disrespects everything and everyone. He cares only about Mike.

    Hey its michael Jordan Either you love him or you don’t. Last time I looked this is America and he can act anyway he likes and if you don’r like it TO BAD. I love watching him play Basketball but I don’t care for his character off the court and that is ok I don’t follow him every day to see what he is doing I have my own life. If he started a reality tv show Maybe would watch it maybe not…..

    Please spare society your race card drivel.
    Race wasnt mentioned until you brought it up dumbazz.

    It was a story about an arrogant, rich guy. It is easily believable without trying to twist it into some sort of race crime.

    IDIOT.

    This shows what the United States is coming to, you put up two bit gossip column and create contreversy over nothing, this guy lives in a gated community with others of his ilk, if they don’t like his piggish ways, they ought  to do someting, not contact your Hollywood trash column, first time I’ve encountered it, also the last.  I feel embarassed even contributing to it.

    Just know everybody  ,that no one is/was born racist , we just become one by our choice … the property he own is his .. and gave him his rights of existence on his own terms … and if  you are there , and not owning where you are … and not liking someone or something , then you should move out . to make your selve happier , like he is making himself happy too.   merry CHRISTMAS

    sounds like Rodney Dangerfield and a lot of Judge Schmales (Caddy Shack)!!!!!  I like the fact he’s p1ssing off a lot a rich people, poor them.

    Michael Jordan is old news.  A great BB player in his day…absolutely, a richardhead off the court today…absolutely.  M.J. doesn’t have a humble bone in his body and there’s only one person this narcissist cares about, and that’s Michael.  He had his years in the limelight and now it’s over but he can’t accept that.  Who really cares about an arrogant ex-athlete?

    Rite on QR! Like Farve, MJ cant stand not being the center of attention an this is his only way to go; even if the attention is negative, his name is still in the headlines. The problem is we keep reporting this drivel. There are huge positive ways for him to get attention, and that would be with his checkbook, which we the people filled for him in the first place!

    Sounds like the MJ that I know, he doesn’t give a sh.t about other people, its MJ all for himself.  Poor s.o.b., he hasn’t fully grown up yet, I thought he would have grown up by now.

    I dont know you, so I wont comment on you or your opinion. However, I do Kwow that this particular country club has many rich old( lots of other colored guys) living and playing at this club. So, maybe you should find out the facts first and then assume everything is a racist act.Maybe, MJ is just a rude person with no respect for others. Maybe, it is a difference between how some rich young people act and how some old rich people act in public places. I dont belong to the club and I am not a rich old white guy.

    I wonder if MJ was still playing ball would all the old cronies still have the same reaction.  I think NOT.  They would all be running up to him trying to show him their t-shirt and underware, so my advise GET OVER IT.  Walk around the cigars, surely someone is paid to clean up so the problem will be taken care of.  As for him having a posse, Oh Well, wear ear plugs or play at a different time.

     Couldn’t agree more man.After all,it always seems to be them doesn’t it?

    This is a “MJ thing”, not a race thing.  As a person he was never the most popular person among his teammates – Pippen and Rodman were.  He doesn’t give a crap about anybody of any race – that’s him. 

  • jray

    Did you actually use the term “colored guys? Well… I guess it’s better than the n-word so I can’t say a whole lot. I do agree with your opinion on Mike, he probably is just outright arrogant and rude.
