UNC defeated Duke 90–83 on Saturday night. It's arguably the best rivalry in college sports, so it's no surprise that the Tar Heels brought out the big guns to try and fire up the crowd. 

It doesn't get any bigger than Michael Jordan. The Hall of Famer and former UNC star spoke at halftime of the game and uhhh, it could have gone better. 

It's really not clear what he meant. The sky is the limit? There is no roof? Reach for the stars?

But technically, he's not wrong. The ceiling is, in fact, the roof.
