Michael Jordan was heartbroken, disappointed, depressed, distraught and mad knowing he lost his best mate and his best guy James Jordan who was his father. James Jordan was killed on 23 July 1993, while he was sleeping in his car on a highway in Lumberton, North Carolina. It took a long time for the feds to find the suspects but they were finally caught as the departments were successful in tracking them. They weren’t sentenced to death and this hurt Michael Jordan more as till the day the case goes on MJ is trying his best to keep both the murderers behind the bars.
The road ahead was tough and rough for Michael Jordan without his dad advising him at every moment he needed. But there are reasons he’s called Black Jesus and Black Cat. As he didn’t lose hopes and never gave up and today has his dad proud as he is widely regarded as the G.O.A.T of the game. It took him some time to bounce back but soon he was the best in the game and even the business as he was the face of the league and a global superstar. He went on to stack his resume with Six NBA championships and probably every award the league had to offer at that time.
But the loss was still the same and so was the story. Recently, Vlad TV released a video clip of their interview with John Salley who once played for the Chicago Bulls. In the video clip, he has revealed the reason behind Michael Jordan not killing the men who murdered his father. The clip also has the suspect claiming that he knew it was possible for MJ to get him killed but he just didn’t want to and that’s the reason why he lives till the day.
John Salley reveals why Michael Jordan didn’t kill men who murdered his father
John Salley revealing the reason had many crime-based backstories as he quoted: “So if Michael says he wanted him dead. Michael sends the bird and gets this guy murdered in the jail and now Michael is on the hook…Look what happened to OJ. OJ told two guys to show up with him, he’s gonna go get his stuff. Next thing you know, OJ gets 13 years in jail.” He also agreed on the main reason behind him not taking the step was to continue the chain and yes he was a megastar known worldwide and with that type of fame, it’s just not possible to get your hands dirty this easily. So MJ’s popularity saved the guys and John Salley also mentioned how it’s better to not continue senseless murder. As even, he was once stuck in the very same situation but chose not to kill the person at the other end as it’s important to be the wise one.
