PLAYERS: Dez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is more than your average Michael Jordan fan. It's common for Bryant to walk around the team's Valley Ranch locker room in Jordan Brand clothing and sport numerous different styles of the basketball legend's shoes. So you can imagine how excited Bryant, who often plays basketball in his free time, was Saturday night when he finally got a chance to meet His Airness. The encounter occurred during a 50th birthday celebration for Jordan in Houston. Bryant tweeted: "So excited I can't tweet right lol.meeting Michael Jordan tonight was the best moment of my life." Bryant then followed by posting a photo of himself and the 6-6 legend. Unfortunately for Bryant, 24, he was only nine when Jordan won the last of his six championships, so most of his memories are probably of Air Jordan playing in Washington. Good thing about MJ, it's not difficult to find his highlights.
