"Like Mike" star Bow Wow, now known as Shad Moss, recently recalled a story about when he made the mistake of not wearing Jumpman sneakers to the home of the greatest basketball player of all-time.

"Michael Jordan threw away my Allen Iverson sneakers when I was at his house," Moss said. 

Moss says that he used to stay at the Jordan household while he was touring the country. One day, he woke up and the former Chicago Bulls star was holding up Moss' Iverson sneakers. Jordan tossed them in the garbage and then got Moss a new pair.
