After spending $7 million to fund a health clinic for uninsured patients in his native North Carolina, NBA legend Michael Jordan is now opening up about the latest stage of his life, his philanthropic efforts, paying college players, his support of activist athletes, and his newest nickname, ‘Grandpa Mike.’ ‘Actually it’s fun because I can actually hold him and play with him and I’m having fun watching him,’ Jordan, 56, told NBC’s Today about his first grandchild, infant Rakeem Michael Christmas. ‘It’s actually beautiful.’ Rakeem is the son of Jordan’s only daughter, Jasmine, and Rakeem Christmas, a former star player at Syracuse who went on to have a brief NBA career and now plays overseas.
Former Syracuse big man Rakeem Christmas always has a reason to feel festive but today’s probably extra special. He’s now engaged to Jasmine Jordan, the daughter of Michael Jordan. We repeat, Michael Jordan will be his father-in-law. A very unique situation. Good luck winning board games, ping-pong, or really anything that involves competition. On the bright side, Christmas will always have a guy who will take him up on some action. A mixed bag.
The Pacers plan to waive Rakeem Christmas by 5:00 pm Thursday, league sources told VigilantSports.com. Originally, Christmas’ salary for the 2017-18 season ($1.1 million) became guaranteed if he was not waived by July 1. However, sources said Christmas agreed to move it back to July 6, to the end of the Orlando Summer League.
