Hear Jeremy Roenick recall this incredible Michael Jordan gambling story!

If the entire tale narrated by Jeremy Roenick is actually true then it just goes to show how incredible Michael Jordan was a basketball player for the Chicago Bulls. However, that being said isn't betting on your own team's match considered to be a cardinal sin? It's still unclear as to whether the entire story revealed by Jeremy Roenick is accurate considering the various loopholes presented throughout his narration. Jeremy Roenick said that the game in question took place in either 1992 or 1993. Based on that information, our best guess is that he was talking about the match between Bulls and Cavaliers on March 28, 1992. Michael Jordan scored 44 points in the 126-102 victory over the Cavs.
