Security guard who beat Michael Jordan in quarters game becomes meme

Michael Jordan security shrug

A security guard featured in “The Last Dance” documentary became a meme on Twitter Sunday night.

Episode 6 of the documentary aired on ESPN, and one clip showed Jordan betting with a security guard. Jordan infamously loved to gamble and bet the security guard about who could pitch a quarter closer to the wall. The guard put up $20 that he could get closer than MJ in four shots. He beat Jordan on his first try and then gave Jordan the famous shrug. Twitter absolutely loved it.

Here are some of the tweets featuring the guard:

The perm. The attitude. The confidence. The shrug. That security guard was a legend. MJ is probably hungry to win his money back from that guy.

The security guard was later identified as John Wozniak, who sadly died this year.
