SHORT HOPS TODAY'S QUOTE FRIDAY'S RESULTS ON DECK
An Atlanta woman has filed a paternity suit against former NBA star Michael Jordan, seeking child support and medical expenses, according to published reports.
Pamela Smith said she is also willing to take a paternity test to prove the former Chicago Bulls player is the father of her 16-year-old son, according to TMZ, the first to report the lawsuit filed Feb. 6 in Fulton County.
Spokespeople for Jordan have declined to comment on the reports.
In the suit, Smith said she became pregnant in 1995 and gave birth to her son in June 1996, according to several reports. Jordan was married to his former wife, Juanita, at the time. The two were married from 1989 to 2006, when they divorced. They have three children.
