In between potentially being fined $1 million dollars and laying off his employees despite making their combined salary about nine times over from endorsements, Michael Jordan is still living the life. He's at Lake Tahoe for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship this weekend, and in the process, wound up making a friendly wager with a spectator.

Courtesy of Busted Coverage (via The Basketball Jones) comes video of the exchange. Here's Jordan making the bet, from a distance:

And here's him winning whatever the bet was, and collecting his winning with a cold-blooded jaunt.


Brutal. All that's missing is the shrug.

My favorite part of this is the guy in the white shirt behind the rope line who wants Jordan to high-five him... and Jordan predictably leaves him completely hanging.

Nice to see that Jordan maintains A. his competitive spirit, B. his love/obsession with winning and C. his borderline addiction with gambling. Some things never change. And hey, he's not wearing Mom Jeans.

Michael Jordan wins golf bet at Tahoe

This is why I love Michael! he is always down to gamble! I have played a lot of sports in my day and love them above almost anything. But if you have ever had big money riding on anything you do there is nothing better! It makes every moment of the wager or gambling so intense and if you win there is NOTHING BETTER.
