Anybody catch Flip Saunders's MJ story on Mike and Mike this morning? I thought it was hilarious.
So when the Timberwolves beat the Bulls in Chicago for the first time since MJ was there, they had just called up Darrick Martin from the CBA to play PG in the game. After the they beat the Bulls, Darrick Martin was doing a lot of trash talking to MJ and the rest of the Bulls. The following week Chicago traveled to Minnesota to play the Timberwolves again. From the very start MJ picked up Darrick Martin and relentlessly defended him all 94 ft up the court. After the first 5 minutes of the game Flip had to pull Martin because he wasn't able to get the ball up the court with MJ defending him. After Flip pulled Martin, MJ walked over to the Timberwolves' bench and said "I knew I could send him back to the CBA, I just didn't know I could do it in the first half."

I don't know if a worse player than Darrick Martin has ever had a career as long as his was. That guy just skated from the end of one terrible team's bench to the next.
