Jamal Murray opened up about the first time he met the legendary Michael Jordan.

The superstar of the Denver Nuggets was more than excited about meeting one of the best players in NBA history.

“I met him at the Durham Classic…I was shaking…Nah, I shook his hand, he was talking to us… When you know somebody from afar and you know certain things about him and it’s crazy how the media can portray a picture of you before you can even meet the person.

I got to meet and I was like geez, it’s so much different than how I thought. His eyes are so dark and you can see the competitiveness in them… It’s the first time I have been starstruck like that,” Murray said in an interview with Ashley Nevel, via Fadeaway World.
