It’s possible that sports legends Michael Jordan and Mike Tyson will meet more often than they like in the future. NBA fans are very familiar with MJ’s love of cigars. Arguably one of the best cigar lounges, Eight Lounge is said to have opened its doors to its members in the $4.3 billion hotel called Resorts World Las Vegas. The show’s list of elite members would have included former NHL star Wayne Gretzky, Alex Rodriguez, Charles Oakley, Mike Tyson; and, you guessed it right…Michael Jordan.
