Michael Jordan comments on cargo shorts controversy

Andy Lyons

Michael Jordan spoke on Thursday about being abruptly told that he would not be allowed to wear cargo shorts at a local golf club.

After publicly refusing to change his attire during a recent golf round in Miami Beach, NBA legend Michael Jordan spoke to Melissa Isaacson of ESPNChicago.com on Thursday to reveal a bit more information about his recent incident.

"I've been there many times and no one told me a thing," Jordan said. "Then all of a sudden they come to me on the 11th hole and say I can't wear cargo shorts. The round is almost over and you want me to buy shorts now? Yeah, right!!"

Jordan will reportedly not be allowed back at La Gorce Country Club after not adhering to the rules and finishing out his round, but he clearly did not sound distressed by the possible news with hundreds upon hundreds of other courses around the country at his disposal.

The Hall of Fame player and current owner of the Charlotte Bobcats had fewer than eight holes remaining when he was interrupted with the odd request from management, which represents an extremely distasteful way of handling things by the club. While Jordan still opted to ignore the rules and finish his round anyway, the La Gorce official attire states that all players must not wear cargo or denim and cannot have pockets on the outside of any shorts.
