NBA Fans Go Crazy After Michael Jordan Hugs Tom Brady At Miami Grand Prix: "The Greatness In That Hug Is Unmatched."

In south Florida, Michael Jordan arrived in style to attend the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix on Sunday. These events are nothing new for Jordan, but it always causes quite a scene.

As he made his grand entrance, a crowd of fans and observers flooded his path.

While his arrival alone would have been enough to send the internet into a frenzy, he wasn't the only star in attendance. Serena Williams, David Beckham, and Lewis Hamilton all made appearances.

Tom Brady was also there and even embraced MJ for a long hug.

For Brady and Jordan, it was just a hug between friends. For the fans, however, it was a collision of two GOATs.

Those two guys are probably the greatest in the history of their sport.

For Brady, he's a 15x Pro-Bowler, 3x MVP, 7x Champion, and the NFL's All-Time leader in career touchdown passes with 624. Despite being nearly 45 years old, Brady remains one of the best players in football, and he's set to play in what will likely be his last season.

Jordan, meanwhile, is an icon in the basketball world. He retired for the final time almost 20 years ago, but he's still on the minds of every basketball fan today. As a 14x All-Star, 10x Scoring Champ, 5x MVP, and 6x Champion, his resume is truly unmatched.

So, as two of the greatest in their sport, it's no surprise that fans are going crazy over their encounter -- but it's not actually the first time they've crossed paths. Back in April of 2020, they were part of a now-legendary basketball game in the Bahamas.

It seems, at the very least, the two are friends. It's a great thing for them, obviously, but also a great thing for the fans, who may get to see them hang out again in the near future.
