Michael Jordan once ripped future All-Star and said he wasn't worthy to wear Jordan Brand

That's just mean.

Michael Jordan was not always known as one of the nicer guys when he played in the league and especially so in his third NBA stint. When he played for the Washington Wizards he was still able to put a 50-point game and had several 40-point games as well, but was not really a fan of mentoring the young guys on how to do that.

While on an episode of "The Jump" with Rachel Nichols and Tracy McGrady, Richard "Rip" Hamilton talked about his playing alongside the legend and how ornery he could get. He also told a story about the time he tried to become a member of the Jordan Brand and was shut down by Jordan.

That's pretty funny and Hamilton ended up having a pretty successful career, earning three All-Star nods and winning a championship in 2004 with the Detroit Pistons. He's no LeBron, but he wouldn't have embarrassed the brand either.
