Be Like Mike, Or Else: Michael Jordan Gives North Carolina Player Harrison Barnes Rough Time Over Wearing Kobe’s Sneakers

(By Brad Cohen, SportsGrid) - North Carolina freshman swingman Harrison Barnes seems to like his Nike Zoom Kobe VI’s. And Michael Jordan isn’t too happy about it.

Saturday—the day before UNC earned a trip to the Sweet 16 with a win over the Washington Huskies—the Tar Heels ran into  MJ outside Time Warner Cable Arena, and the legendary UNC alum took the opportunity to rib Barnes about his shoes.

“If I see you in them Kobe Bryants, man, I’m gonna cut you right off,” Jordan said. “I don’t care if your feet kill you, you’re gonna wear them Jordans." ... “Wait ’til I tell your momma, man. I’m gonna tell her,” he said. “But if you’re gonna keep winning, you can wear them. But that Duke game, you got killed.”
