Who is LaBradford Smith? Part 2

In September of '08 I posted a story about ex-NBA player named LaBradford Smith...

In short the story was about how Jordan was guarding Smith and he managed to drop 37 points on Mike.

Jordan made up some story about how Smith was trash talking after the game just to motivtate himself and his teammates to return the favor when the two teams played again later that week.

Mike dropped 36 in the first half and had 47 by the end of the 3rd, Mike sat out the 4th and the Bulls won by 25.

The reason I bring all of this up again is due to a crazy comment left on the blog over the weekend by one of Smiths angry ex-girlfriends on the original post.

Check out the reply to "Who Is LaBradford Smith":

"I know alot about LaBradford Smith. I 'dated' him for 4 years 1998-2001. During this time he was having financial problems(because no NBA team would pick him up) and marital problems. Yes, he was married and claimed for years to be working on divorce. I lived at his house in New Territory in Houston, so I believed him. In 2000 I filed for bankruptcy to the tune of $38000.00 which he racked up in credit card debt in my name. He promised me for years he would "never leave me with this debt". A year later I had another woman call me from Baltimore and I heard a repeat of my story and time with LA. At this time she was trying to sue him and his wife Erika was divorcing him. This is the LA that everyone needs to know about. So, does anyone know where he is and what he is doing at this time-Nov 2009!?? Drew Mitchell-Houston 713-514-7665."

Pretty crazy...

Here's the original post titled "Who Is LaBradford Smith"


Has anyone ever heard of a former Washington Bullets player named LaBradford Smith?

Well enjoy this story involving Jordan and Smith which is both hilarious and illustrative of the almost fanatical will to win from Jordan.

During the 1993 season, the Bulls were playing against the Bullets and Mike was guarding a little known player named LaBradford Smith. This young upstart managed to drop 37 on Jordan and one could easily assume that His Airness was taking a night off defensively because he was a monster at stopping opposing players. Or, maybe Smith was just greater than Jordan, depends how you want to look at it.

The game is close and the Bulls won, but Jordan is furious that Smith had the temerity to embarrass the greatest like that. Even the win wasn’t enough to appease Jordan’s fury, and by a quirk of the scheduling the two teams would meet again the next night!

After the game MJ vowed to teammates that he was going to get back all 37 points Smith dropped on him by the first half!

Adding a further flapping red cape in front of the angry Bull, Jordan claimed that Smith also taunted him after his seminal performance with the words: “Nice game, Mike.” Telling all who would listen that LaBradford trashed him.

Everybody believed Jordan, the Bullets and Bulls players, while Smith never denied the fact that he taunted him. The legend grew with Washington players passing on the tale at how LaBradford zinged the greatest basketball player of all time.

So, the scene was set the next night when the two combatants would face each other again and Jordan was almost true to his word – he ‘only’ scored 36 points in the first half, with a jumper rimming out as the second quarter came to an end.

Want to know the best part of this tale? Are you ready for the twist at the end of the story? Jordan made up the fact that Smith had trashed him, in fact Smith never said a word, but MJ needed further inspiration to school LaBradford so told everyone that he was disrespected. Amazing.

Here's the video of Mike lighting up Smith for 36 in the first half.

Thank for the story.


Inspired by Inspiration

What happens when you inspire the people that inspire you?

Maybe something like this.

Check out this Jordan Brand X Gatorade shirt dropping next year...

Now its no secret what inspired me and my line...

Do you think that Jordan Brand and Gatorade were actually inspired by me and my LIKE MIKE line?

You be the judge.


Michael Jordan Saves Miami... Again.

Ok, in the last post I said Mike saved Miami, now I know he didn't really save Miami from the riots, but Michael Jordan coming to town back in the late 80's and early 90's was a big deal. MJ coming to Miami really helped get the area around the Miami Arena cleaned up after 3 days of rioting.

Fast forward to 1992 and here's Mike again in Miami in the aftermath of the notorious category 5 Hurricane Andrew.

If your from Miami like I am then you already know how bad that storm was.

The Miami Heat partnered up with the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan for a "We Will Rebuild" game to help raise money for the recovery fund for the victims of Hurricane Andrew.

Aside from the brief MJ clip, the video below also highlights Miami Heat rookie Harold Miner aka "Baby Jordan's" first Slam Dunk Championship.

But the best part of this video is a crazy ass playoff game fight between the Heat and Hawks up in Atlanta...

Askins and Edwards both connect with a clean punch to each others face at the 4:01 mark.
