Ever since he decided to bring distressed JNCOs back, we’ve all had some great laughs at Michael Jordan’s pants. Some call them dad jeans, others call the Aladdin pants. There’s even a Tumblr dedicated to chronicling his fashion mishaps. Up until this point, seeing what new monstrosity Michael Jordan is wearing has been a bowl full of giggles.

But now, things are getting serious, as Michael Jordan’s pants have gotten him in trouble at a Miami country club. From the New York Post:

Michael Jordan ruffled feathers at an exclusive Miami Beach country club when he wouldn’t play by their rules. Page Six has exclusively learned the NBA legend hit the links as a guest at swanky La Gorce Country Club — but his gear didn’t fit the club’s old-school rules.

“Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course,” said a spy. Jordan’s multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred. “He was given the chance to change but he didn’t want to,” a source said.

The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, “He won’t be invited back.”

First and foremost, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. But also, LOL.

Other than that, this is pretty much the perfect Michael Jordan story for this stage in his life. You’ve got the cargo pants, the golf, the refusing to do what someone tells him to do then doing what he wants anyways, the fact that one of his PR reps actually said the words “Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants … He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously” to let you know just how much Michael Jordan loves cargo pants — it’s all perfect. The only thing missing is the end of the story, where Jordan aces all of his remaining holes just to spite the country club.

This is what it has come to with Michael Jordan’s pants — the world’s most famous basketball player now gets in trouble for wearing cargos to a golf course. If that doesn’t earn him a pantervention, I don’t know what will.

Word on the street is that Charles Barkley used to be 10-handicap. Now though, he swings a club like Chuck Hayes shoots free throws. All in all, I’d say it’s a fair tradeoff — he gets to keep playing golf and we get to keep laughing at how bad he is.

OK, so maybe it’s not “fair,” but I’m fine with that. I’m guessing you are too.

Video: Yao Ming golfing

At first I thought Yao Ming’s squatty golf stance was the funniest thing about Yao Ming golfing, but then I saw him swing. Then, right when I thought his swing was the funniest part, Yao struck the classic “Disgusted at his golf shot” look and pose while wearing hilarious golf glasses and nipping out.

That’s when I realized I’d watch an entire 18-hole round of Yao Ming golfing. So good.
