The end of Jeffrey's phone call with Michael Jordan. I'll not soon forget this moment. https://t.co/CCdcxMtDIZ

The man who plays basketball in full Michael Jordan uniform received a surprise from His Airness himself.

Jeffrey Harrison gained attention from playing pick-up ball in Jordan's full uniform. According to KREM's Darnay Tripp, Harrison, who is autistic, honors his idol, whom he studies regularly.

"I am a good player," Harrison said. "I always have fun playing basketball. I also take the game real seriously."

Jordan took notice, sending Harrison plenty of swag to continue his homage. MJ cemented the touching gesture by calling Harrison, and Tripp recorded it.

It's safe to say Harrison won't stop looking like Mike on the court any time soon.
