Michael Jordan apologized to Tony Wroten after his Air Jordan shoes fell apart


It appears that they just don’t make does like they used — or maybe it’s truer of we aid thy did. in a scene right out of a Charlie Chaplin flick, it seems that NBA players have a problem keeping their shoes from utterly destroying themselves when they’re playing in games. We saw Manu Ginobili’s shoe explode on him a while back and and now Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten has fallen victim to a faulty shoe.

This wasn’t just any ordinary shoe though, it was an Air Jordan and His Airness was none too pleased to hear that his shoe had torn apart during a game. As a result, Wroten revealed that he heard directly from Michael Jordan, who apologized for the shoe malfunction last week.

Per The Delaware News Journal: 

“It was more embarrassing than anything,” Wroten said Wednesday. “But things happen. I got an apology from Jordan. Yeah. … He called my agent.”

So while having your shoe break apart during a game is embarrassing, at least you got a call from the greatest player to have played the game. Wroten probably should have asked for a refund over an apology, but the story he got out of the matter probably sufficed
