Italian Manager Shares Story Of How Michael Jordan Came In His Milan Store And Asked Him For Cigars To Try During His Stay In Italy

Despite being retired from the game of basketball for almost two decades, Michael Jordan remains one of the most famous athletes in the world. The Chicago Bulls legend took the NBA to new heights in the 90s, becoming one of the most recognized people on earth. 

Nothing has changed for His Airness, who has been traveling around the world, trying to have some fun with his wife Yvette Prieto. During a recent trip to Italy, MJ surprised a store manager when he was looking for some cigars in Milan. Jordan hasn't changed his habits, and he was ready to get surprised in Italy, but he was the one who surprised people. 

The six-time NBA champion visited a store called 'Casa del Habano' looking for something good he could experience during his trip around the European country. The manager of the store shared the experience of meeting MJ with fans on Instagram, showing his excitement with every word he wrote. 

"Hi guys, my name is Luca and I manage 'Casa Del Habano' in Milan. Today a tall man came into the shop and asked me if I had some types of cigars he would like to try during his stay in Italy. I look at it better. I understand. . My legs are shaking ... I served Michael Jordan today."

It must be incredible to meet Michael Jordan, and Luca had the luck to do it when he least expected it. Jordan is used to brightening up people's days, and this time wasn't the exception. He looked pretty cool in the picture, and we hope he got what he was looking for. 

MJ has added many activities to his life during these years. Besides being a team owner, he's an avid golfer, a businessman, and more recently, a traveler. It's great to see MJ enjoying life and bringing joy to people not only in the US but overseas.
