Fans marveled at the interaction between the two stars while also admiring Westbrook’s eight-pack.
Jordan was sitting courtside during the game, which featured a fun matchup of Westbrook versus his old teammate James Harden.
The Nets also have Kevin Durant, who is injured but was on the bench watching his old sidekick Westbrook try to push his struggling team to victory. The Nets won the game 113 to 106.
Despite his team’s struggles, Westbrook has been posting insane stat lines over the last few weeks, routinely putting up triple-doubles on a nightly basis.

Westbrook’s teammate, Bradley Beal, also went over to give the Creed and Black Panther star some love, according to NBC Washington.
Westbrook signed the jersey before giving it to Jordan, who was in the news this week after Steve Harvey, the father of his girlfriend, Lori, said he approved of their relationship and lauded him as a good boyfriend.
“I have tried not to like him. I have tried to find something wrong with him that I could dig in and go… ‘cause I done got rid of all of them. All of them. Some of them snuck in the back door on me and lasted a lot longer than I wanted it to. But this guy is such a good guy. He is one of the nicest guys. I’ve met his father. I’ve sat up with him, we’ve talked for hours. I just can’t find nothing wrong with him,” Harvey told Ellen DeGeneres on Monday.
