â†µMichael jordan's Hall of Fame speech was called "petty" by one NBA writer, and now one of the targets of Jordan's speech is standing up against the oddly timed verbal barbs. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥“I’ll play his a— right now,” [Utah Jazz wing Bryon] Russell told Yahoo! Sports. “This is a call-out for him to come play me. He can come out here in his private jet and come play. He’s got millions of dollars. He can pay for the jet. He can meet me at the Recreation Center in Calabasas. â†µ
