Harold Perkins is a young man who will soon see himself hearing his name called on Sundays in the NFL.
On Sunday, the LSU Tigers didn’t come away with the prettiest win when they faced Arkansas, but a win is a win. Perkins continues to piece together a dominant freshman campaign and as he totaled 8 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 4 sacks and 2 forced fumbles, his masterful performance propelled the Tigers to a needed win.
After the game, head coach Brian Kelly revealed to reporters that Perkins did this all while having the flu before the game. Kelly stated he told the freshman not to worry about it because Michael Jordan had his best game while having the flu as well.
Kelly then revealed something shocking afterward.
Are we getting that old that young people in 2022 have no clue who Michael Jordan is?
Not seeing Michael Jordan play during his heyday is understandable, but the fact that his shoes remain so popular is really hard to believe that he has no clue who the Chicago Bulls legend and greatest player in NBA history is.
Perkins is likely trolling. We hope.
LSU improves to 8-2 overall and 6-1 in the SEC. Arkansas falls to 5-5 overall and 2-4 in the conference.
