#30: Jordan the Gambler
The more we learn about Michael Jordan, the more we understand how competitive he was. That competitiveness expanded beyond the court into any activity of Michael’s choosing. One of his favorite ways to express that competitive spirit was through gambling. But some claim that his gambling habits were not always by the book.
This theory claims that Jordan’s first retirement in the 90s was a cover for a suspension related to his gambling habits. After winning his third title in a row, Jordan came under investigation about his gambling to see if he violated any rules. This conspiracy states that he did and that his retirement was actually a hidden suspension from the league.
