Xander Schauffele had the pleasure of walking the green with Michael Jordan, but he became one of the many whose trash-talking against the NBA’s GOAT backfired against them.

Schauffele recounted a story to Colt Knost of CBS Sports on how Jordan beat him after getting some motivation from his barbs.
