Tom Brady Enlists Michael Jordan for April Fool's Day Prank

New England Patriots quarterback says an MJ crossover really hurts.

Published April 1, 2015

Fresh off winning his fourth Super Bowl championship, Tom Brady is sure having plenty of fun this off-season.

In recent days, two separate videos — one of him cliff diving on vacation and the other of him playing a pickup basketball game with Michael Jordan — are proof that the New England Patriots quarterback is having a mighty good time off the football field.

Well, Brady decided to keep the good times rolling, using the once-in-a-lifetime experience of playing pickup basketball with Jordan to pull off a rather epic April Fool's Day joke.

Brady took to his Facebook page Wednesday morning and posted a picture of himself in a full-body cast alongside the caption, "Jordan's crossover is no joke." Brady's left leg cast is autographed with Jordan's signature in the funny shot, which has already generated more than 43,000 likes and 4,000 shares on Facebook.


In addition to being a good April Fool's Day joke, Brady's prank also sent shots to critics who blasted the QB for cliff diving on vacation, reasoning that he could have injured himself and soured the chances of a Patriots' repeat championship season in 2015.
