Yvette Prieto, Michael Jordan: Good times for the best of all time

December 30, 2011 | 10:49 am

Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto. The pair is set to wed.

Michael Jordan is widely considered the best basketball player of all time, and even though he hung up his shoes nearly a decade ago, he's the envy of boys and girls worldwide. And soon Yvette Prieto will be his bride.

The Bobcats owner is still the talk of the town. Everyone wants to be "Like Mike." So much so in fact that last Friday, police officers had to pepper spray rowdy patrons who were fighting for a chance to buy Nike retro Air Jordan basketball shoes.

Here's what people are saying about Jordan, who recently became engaged to model Prieto, on Twitter.

@NormanChad: "Kobe Bryant's getting divorced, Michael Jordan's getting married again -- these fellas are so competitive."

@missarob43: "Oookay!!! RT @Mocurrie25: Michael Jordan is engaged to his Cuban born model gf.I hope he signs a prenup this time ."

@iambdsami "Michael Jordan is still the greatest of all time. Kobe is the 2nd greatest. Either way, both arent trying to be "like" each other."

@ArcherKid: "Michael Jordan Goes For Another Ring!! Engaged To girlfriend Yvette Prieto!!"
