Jordan visits Wilmington Boys and Girls Club

WILMINGTON -- "His Airness" was back at his childhood stomping grounds today. Michael Jordan paid a visit to the Boys and Girls Club that he attended as a youngster, this time to open a brand new reading room dedicated by the charlotte bobcats. The new room is part of the team's community relations education initiative aimed at literacy. This is the seventh such reading room dedicated by the Bobcats throughout North and South Carolina. "Hopefully we got another Michael Jordan somewhere in terms of their success, not Michael Jordan per se in terms of basketball but just in terms of his dreams and aspiring to be the best person he can be and this is a good start." Jordan added that it's always good to see the city grow.
