Michael Jordan just might be the most polarizing sports figure of all time.
His talent has never been replicated. His name is easily recognizable throughout the world, for sports fans and non-sports fans alike. His brand of shoes has become a staple in American culture.
As everyone well knows, Jordan started his legendary career in Chapel Hill, playing for North Carolina basketball under Dean Smith. Even though he's treated like a god on UNC's campus (and pretty much everywhere he goes I guess), Jordan is a busy man — owning the Charlotte Hornets, creating fantastic new kicks and going on lavish vacations and gambling excursions.
The icon doesn't always have time to return to his alma mater, so it's safe to say Carolina fans were thrilled when MJ casually strolled onto the court during Saturday's rivalry game against Duke.
Most fans clapped, smiled and cheered.
And then there was this overjoyed student, who took his excitement to the next level.

This kid is the absolute best. I envision his childhood room lined with vintage Jordan posters, and a massive collection the Hall of Famer's shoes organized neatly in his closet.
It's clear this young man has idolized MJ his entire life, and now, he finally got a chance to see the GOAT in person.
