Craig Ehlo Rumors
In a second-round playoff series between the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers that is set to begin Monday night, Ehlo will root for James’s team — his former team — while acknowledging that Jordan remains the king of Uniform 23. Cue the video. Replay the Shot (“On Ehlo — good!”). He is ready. “The first four or five years after it happened, it was, like, enough, let’s move on,” Ehlo said. “I got tired of seeing it and people saying it. But after a while, I realized it was the situation every athlete wants to be in, my signature moment. I just decided, O.K., let me just ride this pony.”
Out of a timeout, he matched up with the man everyone knew would get the ball near the foul line. He decided to make a statement. “Mr. Jordan, I can’t let you score,” he said in his Texas twang. “I thought I might get into his head a little,” Ehlo said. Jordan grinned, wickedly, leading Ehlo to retrospectively concede, “Maybe I should have just called him Michael.”
Former NBA star Craig Ehlo entered a guilty plea Wednesday morning according to court officials. Superior court workers said Ehlo pleaded guilty to a one count of Second Degree Reckless Burning. The charge is a misdemeanor. The judge sentenced Ehlo to 364 days in jail. However, 363 of those days were suspended according to court records. Ehlo received credit for the one day he served when he was arrested in August.
