Jordan sends his Best Love
Turns out NBA legend Michael Jordan had a high school sweetheart just like the rest of us, and even wrote her love letters.
Jordan’s lady love, Laquetta Robinson, kept her love letters and was upset to find a letter from Jordan sold for $5,100.66 in 2004 at an auction. She believes that the letter was taken from her house and sold by a relative and she says that she will be suing for having something so personal in the open for everyone to see.
My Dearest Laquette
How are you and your family doing, fine I hope. I am in my Adv. Chemistry class writing you a letter, so that tell you how much I care for you. I decide to write you because I felt that I made you look pretty rotten after the last night. I want to tell you that I am sorry, and hope that you except my apologie. I know that you feelings was hurt whenever I loss my necklace or had it stolen.
I was really happy when you gave me my honest coin money that I won off the bet. I want to thank you for letting me hold your annual. I show it to everyone at school. Everyone think you are a very pretty young lady and I had to agree because it is very true. Please don’t let this go to your head. (smile) I sorry to say that I can’t go to the game on my birthday because my father is taking the whole basketball team out to eat on my birthday. Please don’t be mad because I am trying get down there a week from Feb. 14. If I do get the chance to come please have some activity for us to do together.

Well I have spent my time very wisely by write to you. I hope you write back soon. Well I must go, the period is almost over. See you next time around, which I hope comes soon.
With my Best Love
Michael J. Jordan
“It was mine, it was personal, and it was private” Robinson said. “And then for them to take something that belonged to me and to capitalize off of it, without my knowledge, without my permission, it really hurt me.”
