Michael Jordan refused to drop trou for Miami Beach golf course

Check out the headline and lead out of The Post's Page 6 today and you might get the impression that Michael Jordan is a major douchejuice: Jordan 'shorts' club is followed by:

Michael Jordan ruffled feathers at an exclusive Miami Beach country club when he wouldn’t play by their rules. Page Six has exclusively learned the NBA legend hit the links as a guest at swanky La Gorce Country Club — but his gear didn’t fit the club’s old-school rules. “Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course,” said a spy. Jordan’s multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred. “He was given the chance to change but he didn’t want to,” a source said.

Entitled prick, right? Walked right in wearing those cargo pants and refused to change when told that there was a dress code. Yeah, except no one at La Gorce apparently said anything to him until he was on the 12 hole:

A rep for Jordan said, “Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change.

And that's how you sell papers, ladies and gentlemen. Misleading ledes.
