Michael Jordan High School Love Letter Surfaces

A love letter from a teenage love struck Michael Jordan to his prom date has surfaced online.

A high school love letter by then-teen Michael Jordan is making rounds on the Internet.

The note from Charlotte resident and Wilmington native was uploaded to a site called "Letters of Note" on Thursday and is already featured on ESPN's website.

In the note, Jordan – then just 18 – writes to apologize to his then-girlfriend Laquette. He said that he recently made her "look pretty rotten."

Jordan wrote the note in 1980 while in an advanced chemistry class at Laney High School in Wilmington.

Jordan, who played at UNC-Chapel Hill and helped win the school one national championship, is considered to be one of the best – if not the best – college and pro basketball player ever.

These days Jordan owns a condo in uptown Charlotte and also owns the Charlotte Bobcat NBA team.

The 1 1/2 page note, written on regular 5-hole ruled notebook paper ends "With my best love, Michael J. Jordan."

My Dearest Laquette

How are you and your family doing, fine I hope. I am in my Adv. Chemistry class writing you a letter, so that tell you how much I care for you. I decide to write you because I felt that I made you look pretty rotten after the last night. I want to tell you that I am sorry, and hope that you except my apologie. I know that you feelings was hurt whenever I loss my necklace or had it stolen.

I was really happy when you gave me my honest coin money that I won off the bet. I want to thank you for letting me hold your annual. I show it to everyone at school. Everyone think you are a very pretty young lady and I had to agree because it is very true. Please don’t let this go to your head. (smile) I sorry to say that I can’t go to the game on my birthday because my father is taking the whole basketball team out to eat on my birthday. Please don’t be mad because I am trying get down there a week from Feb. 14. If I do get the chance to come please have some activity for us to do together.

Instead of advanced chemistry he should have been in remedial english. Just another case of pushing athletes through school and placing them in classes where they don't belong.

This letter is corny ass fuck! When did he write it, in 1920?

As for the egregious spelling, this is why athletes need proper schooling. MJ made it through, but most others need that Plan B, as in an education.
