This is not said very often, but poor Michael Jordan. The NBA legend got Whitleyed by Kenny Atkinson. Jordan was about to start a new life with Atkinson leading his Charlotte Hornets. They fit together as well as Byron and Whitley in the fifth season of A Different World, but then Dwayne Wayne, a.k.a. The Golden State Warriors, showed up at the door.
With a postseason run that no one outside of their organization predicted in the fall, or at the conclusion of a regular season that ended with Stephen Curry on the sidelines, the Warriors reminded Atkinson of the great times they’ve had together.
