The G.O.A.T. Michael Jordan, made a rare appearance at his alma mater Saturday night to celebrate the partnership between North Carolina and his Jordan Brand. The latest partnership will mark UNC as the second collegiate football program to represent the Jumpman on the gridiron. During halftime of Saturday’s UNC-Duke men’s basketball game, Jordan took this time as an opportunity to speak about the partnership. Though the speech was meant to encourage and live on through the community, it instead took a turn and got the social world roasting. Jordan’s words? “The ceiling is the roof. Let’s make it happen. Let’s keep moving forward.” Check out the speech and roasts below.
Expect the new Jumpman looks to debut on-field September 2, 2017 during the Tar Heels’ home opener against the University of California Golden Bears. In case you missed it, the Golden State Warriors recently got roasted for its All-Star photo shoot.

“The ceiling is the roof”. Man I told y’all when MJ was created, God put his basketball attribute at 100 and left everything else at 0.
