Watch Michael Jordan abuse this young Chicago Bulls player back in 1999 shortly after he retired.

By Robby Sabo

Remember 1999? It was all about Y2K hysteria, party like it’s 1999, and the Chicago Bulls being horrible.

After the 1998 season concluded and Michael Jordan retired, Scottie Pippen went to Portland and Phil Jackson eventually headed to Los Angeles, the Bulls were putrid.

Guys like a young Ron Artest were roaming the floor.

In this rare video, Jordan stopped by the young Bulls practice to school one Corey Benjamin who issued a challenge to Mike, via Skip Bayless who was then writing for the Chicago Tribune.

During the one-on-one battle, Jordan used catch-phrases such as “You reach, I teach” and actually told Benjamin to look around at the championship banners hanging from the walls.

Once MJ crushed the poor kid, Jordan told him to “sit down” and not call him out again.
