Miley Cyrus has been repping the Chicago Bulls for years.

I’ve gotta get something off my chest: I was a little scandalized by Miley Cyrus’ Chicago Bulls ensemble for Mike Will Made It’s “23” music video. No, not because she was basically wearing underwear with high heels or a pair of bike shorts with a trompe l’oeil thong. Not even because of that microscopic Chanel bag! (But while we’re on it, WTF can even fit in there??) Nope. Miles got me with that chopped and screwed Michael Jordan #23 jersey. I get goosebumps picturing a pair of scissors hitting that mesh. Does she know what she’s doing?! I mean, what would MJ say??
Turns out, he liked the video (contrary to popular belief), and had nary a word to say about the customization of his iconic uniform. And judging from the throwback snap she tweeted, it also appears that Miles knew exactly what she was doing—she was a Bulls fan as a wee little tyke! She posted the above side-by-side of her “23” ’fit and baby pic of herself wearing Chicago Bulls shades while decked head to toe in red and white. We’re ballparking the photo at circa 1996, smack dab in the middle of Jordan’s second three-peat era when he returned to the NBA after a brief flirtation with baseball (aka REALLY exciting times in sports). So, OK, Miley. You’ve been a fan since your sandbox days. You can slice and dice as many jerseys as you want.
