MJ and Barkely were BOTH BAD influences on Tiger Woods!

http://sports.yahoo.com/golf/blog/devil_ball_golf/post/Vanity-Fair-article-casts-doubt-on-Tiger-s-hones?urn=golf,231370

But Vanity Fair indicates that it wasn't just Tiger's inner circle covering up for his behavior. Famous names like Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan brought Woods along for gambling junkets to Vegas. He'd stay at the Mansion at the MGM Grand, in a one-bedroom suite that ran $5,000 a night. And when he'd bet, he'd bet big -- up to $150,000 a hand of cards.

Barkley and Jordan have had well-documented problems with gambling. Barkley has claimed gambling losses of up to $10 million in the past, and in 2008 had to repay a $400,000 debt to the Wynn Casino. Jordan's gambling was the subject of an NBA probe in the '90s.

Not coincidentally, former Woods advisor John Merchant had no regard for Jordan's influence on Woods: "Stay away from that son of a [profane], because he doesn’t have anything to offer to the [profane] world in which he lives except playing basketball," he allegedly told Woods at the time. More recently, he told Seal, "Are they his black role models? You’ve got to be kidding me." (After the accident, Barkley noted that Woods had changed his number and wasn't returning Barkley's calls.)


I hope MJ doesn't became a bad influence to the Bobcats' players either :naughty:

    But I'm pretty sure if the GOAT wore the purple and gold, the story would have been different altogether. :p

    I don't see the rationale behind this article. Woods is what 30 plus already? He knows what is good and bad. Does he really need a role model? :rotflmao:

    it's an open secret that MJ gambled. prolly gambled on basketball too. that baseball stint was Jordan serving his NBA suspension.

    oo nga ano.. what would this mean para sa bobcats? will they start losing games on purpose just to let MJ win some cash?
