Then, in a crazy twist, the driver, George Koehler, was actually a high school basketball teammate of Jordan's older brother, Larry Jordan, and the two hit it off and have been friends since that day at the airport.

In a 2010 interview, George Koehler explained his friendship with Jordan: "After 25 years, I no longer drive limousines for him, but we are still very close friends.
