Michael Jordan was accosted by a fan wearing a Chicago Bulls jersey on the court of the Forum shortly before Chicago's game with the Lakers on Friday night.
About 10 minutes before game time, a man who appeared to be in his early 20s walked on to the court while the Bulls were shooting baskets and warming up. He went up to Jordan, who was standing near the foul line, crouched down and hugged his leg. Jordan slowly backed away as the man began crying.Police officers surrounded the man, who shouted, "I love you, Michael!" as he was led away.
Jordan, who travels with a bodyguard, calmly resumed shooting baskets.
