UPDATE – This was a hoax (link)
Michael Jordan is reportedly in Orem today to take on Bryon
Russell in a 1-on-1 challenge during half-time of the Utah Flash
home opener against the Dakota Wizards.
Russell challenged Jordan to a game of 1-on-1 after remarks that
Jordan made about Russell during his hall of fame speech. Flash
owner Brandt Anderson invited the two to play the game during
half-time of the Flash game. Anderson will pay the winner of the
challenge $100,000 for the charity of his choice.
Jordan hasn't verbally committed to playing the game, but he was
sighted Monday morning at Mimi's Cafe in Orem.
I'm skeptical of this report. Why? Because it doesn't make sense for this game to be played without the media knowing about it. You could sell more tickets, get more sponsors, etc.
The date on the byline reads 2010. If this reporter/newspaper can't get the year right, how can we expect he/she/it to get the story right?
