Anyone know if something's wrong with MJ's health? Last few years, his eyes look kind of yellow. They didn't always look like that.

Alcoholism and smoking cigars like heaters will do that to ya.

I used to know a guy with yellow eyes like that and always figured it was from smoking cause the guy smoked a crap ton but I don't think he drank much.

MJ looked to be smoking a cigar in every scene that didn't involve a basketball in his hand.  Truly impressive.  I can only imagine how much water he drank to counteract his dry mouth and the fluids he was losing during games/practices.  I enjoy cigars every once in awhile but have never been a smoker.  Can frequent smokers chime in here on the difficulty of smoking and being a bad-ass athlete?

So did a search and came upon this article:

https://www.cigaraficionado.com/article/michael-jordan-a-cigar-before-every-home-game

Apparently he smokes 6 cigars a day now.  I'm assuming that would make a person's eyes pretty yellow.

I’d forgotten that Jordan sliced his own finger tendon after the 98 season.

One of my favorite exchanges of the series. Brought me back to junior high.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.
