Doug Wilson is finally joining old golf buddy Michael Jordan among his sport’s elite.
Jordan was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009. Wilson will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, part of the 2020 class that had to wait a year for their induction ceremony because of COVID-19.
Jordan and Wilson met each other in the ‘80s, both among the great Chicago sports stars of that decade.
“We played a lot of golf together,” Wilson recounted last week. “He used to come to our club and play a lot. We played some tournaments together, we played a couple of pro-ams.”
The Wilson-Jordan connection goes beyond a few rounds of golf.
