The G.O.A.T. basketball legend celebrated his 55th birthday this weekend.

His friend and legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield knew what to give.

“This weekend is fun for him. He gets to do some business and also have his birthday party, but after this I happen to know he’s going to be on some vacation,” Hatfield said “I won’t divulge where [Jordan is going skiing]. But my birthday present to him this year was 2 pairs of brand new custom-made skis.”

He added:

“It’s fun to watch him on a slope, and I’ve skied with him, because he has this cool rhythm as he goes down, He doesn’t really turn that quick, but he loves to go fast with these big hawking turns. When he crashes, he thinks it’s hilarious. We have a lot of fun.”

He started to talk about her injury from 2016 and he said:

“The knee is certainly an issue. I want to point out she also got married. And it’s historically very challenging to race on the World Cup with a family or being married. Not to blame the spouses, but I just want to toss it out there that it may be her husband’s fault.”

Who knows, may be she didn’t get the help she needed.

But the apology is just here:
